Hey Everyone,

It's a big wide wonderful world, and how wonderful to have a place like Wattpad to display our words and literary wares!

My 2 years on WP have brought me friends @seasofme & @OwainGlyn -  two superb writers and my two original buddies and partners in crime on WP; and others, too numerous to mention, although I'll try in another post : ) 

The primary thing WP has given me though is: PRACTICE. I've become a better writer due to the almost 1000 parts & pieces of work I've posted on this site and from reading watching and absorbing from the many, myriad, magnificent writers on this site.

A little about me - I've studied English Composition, Literature, Creative Writing and Poetry, but I have to say the bulk, and the most important part of my continuing education, is reading. I read - a lot.

I try to vary my reading and I try to read not only a vast assortment of books, but writers too. I'm not a book snob - though I have, and do, read classics. These days I'm reading much more fiction than non-fiction, I seem to find more truth there. 

I've won awards for poetry and for one of my short stories, and I've been published in a small trade magazine, so far.  But I hope to become more widely published one day. 

I'm proudest of my fiction and oddly enough, lately -  some of my better Limericks, which people find humorous & seem to be attracting some notice.

My greatest joy, other than my children, the natural world, my friends and God (not necessarily in that order), is entertaining people and making them laugh.

With over 15 short stories, a complete mystery novella, 2 serials, 24 poetry groups (including said Limericks), and 4 or 5 non-fiction essays - I do hope you can find something to your liking : )
 
In the name of blessed brevity, the ease to the reader, & to compete with the poetry (including my own), almost all my work is posted in parts of a half page to a page or less.


Joy...hugs - and hang in there, gang,

Tarzan meets Jane with a Scottish flavor, a humorous collaboration between @OwainGlyn and @sloanranger. We hope it gives you a smile. Bonny Boy & Winsome Lass have moved from: Part 1 - 'The Courtship,' to Part 2 - 'A Wedding.'
