Hemingway, in the heavenly Writers’ Corner, sullenly one-finger types, shooting murderous glances at the newbies with their Mac Books.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. But not Fred West. I’m not a particular fan but forced myself to re-read several of his books whilst living stateside It’s interesting the different perspective one gets. Which does not a groupie me make be assured 😉

      2. That was a strange experience. Just read the first two lines of your comment and thought—wow! So Fred West wrote books! And you read them, even reread them! Then I woke up. I used to love Hemingway when I was 16/17. Thought he was so romantic. Then I woke up.

      3. Same deal. With Ernest not Fred or approximately so. It’s the bit I have found hardest about parenting … that growing up and smelling whatever it is we smell the is more realistic and sitting on one’s hands, taping one’s mouth when the smalls reach the romantic delusion phase (praying even though I have nothing to pray to except myself that they will see the light in due time otherwise I am bound to overstep the mark and make a choice remark …) That.

      4. It’s not the romance per se that began to look jaded, it was the type of romance. Those strong men of few words, the women who end up doing what he doesn’t even have to ask them to do, because they jump to it intuitively, the manly stuff involving guns and large wild animals. Just didn’t do it for me.

      5. Not much to choose between them…except I don’t think Hemingway’s heroes would blow their girlfriend’s head off because she’d forgotten to buy the ciggies.

  1. Haha! I love it! Of course I would fall into one of those in the newbie category now. Love my macbook. I’ve been an apple aficionado since mac box computers with 8 inch monocromatic screens and the happy mac face greeting me when I turned the computer on. Every now and again I do love a fresh notebook and fountain pen with peacock colored ink. 🙂

      1. I do quite a good bit of writing these days on my iPhone. I got the bigger screen. I like that it is always with me…and I dislike that it is always with me. 🙂
