PEP TALK FOR ALL AUTHORS

In life you will always have to endure the tirades of an adversary. We would all like to believe that everyone on the planet will fall in love with everything we write. Unfortunately, that is not the case. There are people out there that will not only dislike your work, but they will go out of their way to encourage you to give up your craft. Don’t listen to the book bullies, but do pay attention to honest well thought out critiques. You cannot focus on the comments of a book bully especially...

The name of Dreams

The name of Dreams

Since the time we are born, we are trying to learn the name of everything, from objects around us, to persons, feelings, and situations... Sometimes, the most difficult thing to learn… is to learn the name of our dreams. Only when you figure out the name of your dreams, can you then call them, so that they will make you find the way of your dreams into your life. Kelsey was maybe 7 and she already knew that she loved autumn and snow. She could close her eyes and hear the call...

Traveler’s Rest

Traveler’s Rest

If England’s weather is something of a topic for international humor, the local residents in the village of West Wycombe - located on the vast Salisbury Plains west of London - often seem to miss the punch line. With a latitude roughly equivalent to that of Halifax, Nova Scotia, a certain hatred for the local weather is hardly surprising. For nearly nine months of the year the climate here is alternately, or far too often simultaneously, foggy, damp, windy, rainy and cold. Not the searing...

The Vineyard

The Vineyard

My family has been producing one of the finest wines from Carmargue region for several generations. Although we are a very small vineyard many have said our grapes are the sweetest and our wine has an indefinable “something”. Of course the distinctive color known as “grey of grey” contributes to the uniqueness of our wine. What very few people have had the opportunity to sample is a special wine grown from select grapes. Behind the old and crumbling home where my ancestors first lived...

The Swedish Academy has got it right this year: the British author is audacious, controlled and utterly originalA few years ago in a panel discussion at a literary festival I was asked to name a recent British novel that readers and critics would still be talking about in a hundred years’ time. On the spur of the difficult moment I plumped for Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go. Only as I tried to explain my choice did I realise why I had given this answer. It was not just a novel I...

Anecdote

Tickets Please
by Steve Young from York, England
like 6dislike 0report 0

Three accountants and three engineers are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three engineers each buy tickets and watch as the three accountants buy only a single ticket.
"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks an engineer.
"Watch and you'll see," answers an accountant.
They all board the train. The engineers take their respective seats but all three accountants cram into a rest room and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the rest room door and says, "Ticket, please."
The door opens just a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on.
The engineers saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea.
So after the conference, the engineers decide to copy the accountants on the return trip and save some money (knowing that accountants are clever with money) . When they get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return trip.
To their astonishment, the accountants don't buy a ticket at all.
"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed engineer. "Watch and you'll see," answers an accountant.
When they board the train, the three accountants cram into a rest room and the three engineers cram into another one nearby.
The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the accountants leaves his rest room and walks over to the rest room where the engineers are hiding.
He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."
