If I had one regret about 2020, it’s that I didn’t pick up on this niche faster. In its goodContinue reading “Staying Proud In 2021”

Zippy The Dragon

So I was interviewed today, and my interviewer, correctly pointed something out about me. I tend to look at the things that terrify me, and think about how to do them, and I must confess, drawing terrifies me. Not Good Enough I have lousy hand co ordination. My chicken scratch of writing made me notContinue reading “Zippy The Dragon”

Imagine

Imagination is our greatest gift. If you’re reading this, you probably familiar with Albert Einstein’s famous quote about imagination.  If you aren’t here it is: “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” Cool quote right?  But what exactly does that mean?

Journeying into the Heartland with Christine Steendam

Christine Steendam has the soul of an editor.  I know this because when I got back the interview corrections, Christine chose to torment this writer with all the corrections visible and in tact.  I think there was just a little bit of perverse pleasure in that whole exercise.  Editors as you know, are evil byContinue reading “Journeying into the Heartland with Christine Steendam”
