  1. I was interested in writing once, until I met this philistine who said he couldn’t tell the difference between good and bad writing and didn’t like reading books anyway because folk are just trying to tell you something in books. After that, I decided just to watch the telly instead.

  2. Often one person will have more information about one side of things – e.g. the techie side, and another will know about the strategic side, etc. We used to joke about contributions on multi-authored papers – What did you do? Lick the stamp that went on the envelope?

  3. I don’t comment, but after reading through a few of the comments here Writing short stories, scholarly articles and items for trade magazines Roddy Macleod's Blog. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it only me or do a few of these responses appear like they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of all of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  5. Hi, I’m Mike. I’m Currently studding English Literature; It may be useful to have a look at the style of James Joyce; Dubliner’s. This is a series of fifteen short stories, all of which can be read independently or as a collection, in which Joyce uses quite a few literary devices. It is a fantastic style of writing – Joyce uses his short stories (Titles, Characters, Setting etc.) as a microcosm of Ireland its self. All characters suffer from the Joycean epiphany and paralysis, which allows Joyce to even leave some stories almost feeling incomplete as its the sense of self that the stories’ leave you with. Its worth a read, hope this helps. Mike
