|NOTE: Used without asking their permission. But, it's from their Facebook page and they'd probably want the publicity. So they'd be cool with it and all.|
After deciding it would be too much work to give you something new, I opted for something else. "No," I hear you cry, "not another frikkin' repost! You just got back!!"
Well, that's just what I'm going to do, whiners. But, this will be a repost with a twist.
Inspired by Robyn Engel, author of one of those aforementioned quality blogs, Life By Chocolate, I decided to enter a writing contest sponsored by Midlife Collage. Because I'm middle-aged, dammit, that's why!
For those who do not know (and I didn't, until Robyn entered), Mid Life Collage sponsors weekly writing contests which are held...uh...every week (hence the "weekly" designation). Each week (once again...week), five stories are trotted out for your pleasure. If you give them a look-see, you are encouraged to "Like" Mid Life Collage on their Facebook page and leave comments stating how wonderful, up-roaringly hilarious, inciteful, or putrid the piece was.
The good people at MLC will take that all into consideration when deciding the winner. After consulting the entrails of an owl and a Magic 8 Ball, of course.
Anyway, if you feel so inclined, please have a look at Journey to the Center of My Bowels.
If you also feel so inclined, feel free (or reasonably priced) to leave a comment.
Incidentally, it's posted by Ken Lynch. Is there anyone out there who still doesn't realize he is me and me is he (and neither one of us are good at grammar)?
Thank you and thank you, Robyn!
P.S. On an unrelated note, I was also inspired by Mark, of The Rambling Person (yet another quality blog) to put one of my books on Create Space. By doing that, it would be available in a printed version that could be distributed worldwide and be a huge financial windfall for me. Spurred on by horrendously lackluster sales as an eBook, I have therefore decided that Shag Carpet Toilet will be available for purchase. I've ordered my copy, but won't hawk (NOTE: also a synonym for "bringing up phlegm") it until I've had a chance to see if it is as I had hoped (e.g., I'm hoping they kept the verbs in).
In other words...more to follow.
But, what are you waiting for, go have a look at my bowels! No, wait. that didn't come out right.
By the way, ROBYN WON HER CONTEST! How cool is that?
