  1. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m
    a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress oor go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Many thanks!

    1. Thank you for the compliment! I’m not sure I know what you are talking about (regarding your two choices), but I pay WordPress to have this site. I got my domain from GoDaddy.com. I hope this helps.

  2. This was the first short story that I wrote in 2018…my first year of fictional writings. I decided after working on its 4000+ words that I prefer to write shorter stories…2000 or less words per story. I was inspired by Fort Concho reenactments of baseball games to begin the story. Included in this first story are several ideas that have hung in my mind for years.
