A New Story Begins in 3 Days

I’ve never experienced writer’s block. I enjoy writing. It is a passion. Someone asked me where do you get your ideas for a story. My answer is always the same, I watch people and when I see someone interesting, I look at the person from a distance and say, “Tell me your story, I’m interested.” My mind and the character do the rest. I move my fingers on a keyboard and get out of the character’s way.

In my forthcoming story, I was in a Mexican restaurant with friends. Across the room from us I saw a woman, alone, in a booth staring at her cell phone. She looked apprehensive. I had my story.

A new serialized story, Doing It Our Way, begins in 3 days.

Lou Gehrig’s “Farewell To Baseball”

Baseball great Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) a fatal disease. On July 4, 1939, he made a farewell speech at Yankee Stadium and expressed his gratitude for being able to play baseball. An example for all of us.

Lou Gehrig Speech – Farewell to Baseball 

Delivered on 4 July 1939, New York

Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about a bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.

I have been in ballparks for seventeen years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn’t consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day?

Sure I’m lucky.
