My Scribbles Through Time

"You must read alot and write alot."  - Steven King in his book, On Writing.

It is as simple as that. A writer needs to read both good and bad examples of writing as his time allows. He also has to practice the craft of actual writing.

So the question most aspiring writers ask: How much is alot?

That question is mostly subjective. So I will answer it with an example on how I work.

The Stab of the Lance

This story has a long set-up that might bore some people who are not fans of pro cycling.. It is necessary to help stress my later points about cheating and the duality of a said individual.

When I was younger, I was a cycling enthusiast. I used to bike 20 miles a day. This was not due to any particular affinity for any pro cyclist, but for liking the challenge of beating childhood rivals who bested me in other pursuits.

I did follow pro cyclists of that time.

Hello Again, Oscar.

It's Academy Award time again.  Last year, my predictions were way off base. 

Today I am going to make a fool out of myself again and attempt to predict the winners.

Happy New Year to all.  The Mayans were wrong.

As I sit here and write this, I am going over the resolutions that I made for 2012 that I actually met, and the ones that I did not attain. Overall, I met half my goals.

In how I perceive myself, it was not a good year.
