It shows that you are inspiring others and I want you to know you inspire me. It’s not for everyone, however, and it should not create pressure or frustration. You can find information at http://bookishswint.wordpress.com/2014/06/23/very-inspiring-blogger-award/ LikeLike Reply June 29, 2014 - 9:58 pm A Mugwump Hey Steph, Thanks for letting me know/nominating me. I will likely follow up with this in the future, but as you know, my time to write is shrinking these days, so I’d like to focus on my own stuff. It really is a unique feeling to have a total stranger take time out of their day to do this though, so thanks again.

In another blog I asked my followers if they could recommend a great biography… do you know of one? LikeLike Reply January 5, 2015 - 5:45 pm Pete Deakon Hey Louise, Please do. Or you can get the book version for your kindle if you so desire. See Buy These Books Page above. 🙂 Biography? I don’t read many, but one that I have read and enjoyed, especially for just the one chapter on President James K. Polk, is Blood and Thunder about Kit Carson. http://www.amazon.com/Blood-Thunder-Carson-Conquest-American/dp/1400031109 Pete PS – Happy Birthday, btw. You’re post reminded me of this old commercial which I just learned I have been remembering wrong all these years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ntxb6MnmJA LikeLike Reply January 5, 2015 - 5:50 pm Pete Deakon And oh my gosh, forgive me, but I can be quite literal. If you expand biography to autobiography, and haven’t read Mark Twain’s, you must.

Your post pretty much defines my first new novel. Pretty funny, really. Pete LikeLike Reply January 11, 2015 - 2:46 pm lorac888890 Hi, but will you tell me more about my post defines your first novel? LikeLike Reply January 11, 2015 - 5:01 pm Pete Deakon Well, my novel is about divorce. During my marriage and divorce nobody really knew I would produce a book based on it, whereas now they all know to expect their comments and lives to make appearances here on this blog. And the question became how do I tell a good/solid story, versus just how to I tell my story. Like you wrote, which parts should I omit and which demand a presence.

And as its valentines day, i hope you find yourself surrounded by pleasure and fun and lots of crazy happy love! from one human to another! 🙂 Thank you, Ed. i hope you like the flattery! 😛 haha LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
