I had started writing my novel, which will be a longer length project, but I have been kind of following my desire and writing poems and this “gift” story in between. As I had written previously that I was writing a “secret story” to be given to someone as a gift at my family’s Christmas gathering, that no one could see the story in that post, but I would like to share it after. 🙂
It is a fully fictional story, inspired partly by Charles Dickens in a great way, that is not memoir but would be a type of genre the recipient would read. I have typed the story and sent it to print at the printer; it has printed…I will wait ’til it is closer to the trip to wrap with a Christmas ribbon. I am also very pleased with how concise it happens to be! feeling like I said a lot at just 385 words, which classifies it as “flash fiction.”
I had also read (or browsed through) yesterday author George Thatcher’s Scenes from the Beach (2003) from my home library; I have a hard time (not) saying that I not really liked a book: see editorially I even messed up my own sentence expressing this.
Born September 18th, 1912, and one of the younger ones of the group, I really liked that the man was writing of Mississippi, which is the hometown of Britney Spears, who may be in my hometown of New York now when I cannot be, and I think she would write this book better, but let me stop there, as I do not wish to insult Mr. Thatcher either on publishing the book…What I didn’t like was a tone as if he didn’t enjoy these sights and was wanting to go someplace else, like the tropics or Aruba, just a guess. I found out just now he died in 2016 if anyone was wondering: Many blessings💕. I did really like the concept and the illustrations. 😊🙏💕…🙏🦋 And I’d also heard he was best known as a radio show host. But the news says that Britney is actually in Mexico.🏝😊
