My only revision of this page is a statememnt that I will not respond to any writers begging to be reviewed , like bold children bawling for sweets IF they do not take the trouble to read mine ( or others) Equally I have come to loath to see those stacato , comments you can churn out to any piece- awessome - I really identified with this piece; This piece had me thinking of....etc
they are patenlty superficial and most of them are intended to ' globalise ' their own popularity.
Please desist from appendind this drivel from my site.
I welcome anything constructive or destructive.
I think I can handle the truth , but I will not abide this duplicious drivel and will speedily delete any such requests posted here.
They are vexation to the spirit!
Ive put a new image of self up; did you notice -
Now that Ive turned 60 vanity is something almost too preposterous to contemplate.
There have been changes also in my responses - I am less infernally negatively critical.
I welcome all the new writers , and promise the new reader that I shall be more circumspect and thoughtful aot my erstwhille scathing critiques - Let it roll man! and give me ' stick ' as you feel the need .
As for my views on celebrities - I'm afraid I give no quarter there
Ive had to add one more codesil . I have been invited to comment on other wrriters work. I have never invited anyone to read mine .
Mine is an open house policy. Take it or leave it ; no invitations are sent to solicit comments. None whatever . Ever.
SO NO MORE -'READ ME'S !!
Please , it would give me immeasureable solace not to feel I have to read anymore work by being solicitated .
I've just changed my image ; twice in past 24 hrs.. Kept getting these'bad hair days'
this is another one
changed my fcae again.. you see this is not really me !
Its a guy I get to sit in as my alter self - teke note GS.. CP
