For nearly three years I have been the host of a blog dealing with tips on writing (mainly screenplays), my adventures which have been included in my writings, and sometimes my philosophy. At first, the blogs appeared every Thursday. I found that with the marketing of my books and writing new ones, it was too much to crowd in a weekly blog. Therefore, I went to an every–other-week format. This lasted for over a year.
Then came “the noises of life”, meaning illnesses. I had been a rather robust person. A little over a year ago I went on a 16-day tour of Turkey. Changing hotels and packing and repacking daily almost got to me but I did see a lot of marvelous things and I collected a lot of new memories and made a lot of friends. I returned in the fall only to be invaded by a long list of illnesses. In all they left me so I could not walk for several months. Thus the “Encore” blogs began. These were favorites that were printed intermittently with fresh blogs. Then I broke two bones on my right foot and got struck in the hip with an attack (and I do mean attack) of arthritis.
I am glad to report that I can walk again and my spirits are high and I am working on a new book entitled THE DOMINO EFFECT. As well I’m e-writing a screenplay of mine which an agent in Beverly Hills is interested in representing. This proves you’re never too old. I’m 84. I keep telling people in these recent days that there is nothing old about me but my birth certificate.
The reason for this special blog is to let you my readers know that my blog will no longer actively be published. As of this issue, the blog will not be dead—only sleeping. That means that occasionally I will wake up and send you a new blog. The good thing is you will have to do nothing to receive it because you will automatically receive the new blog.
Thanks for being with me on this journey and I hope my tips, life stories, and my thoughts may have helped you, entertained you, and inspired you. Take care, write me if you ever have a question. My best to each of you,
