Bad days are gone, grey days instead. In the grey days it’s not so bad. The day may be grey. A rejection letter that sounded like a gentle let down. A letter from the editor that while the piece hasn’t been accepted, it’s on the short list. Tiny bits of encouragement woven in. With that little bit of encouragement, one is encouraged to do more.

Sharing since 1986. I like using words and expressing and articulating my thoughts in stories, reviews, articles, poetry, and other kinds, and in chatting about writing. My first publications were the high school magazine and the national youth newspaper. From there I published in Reality, GiveWay (Later called Transmission), Crosslink, Kid's Highway, Entertainmentnutz.com, Challenge Weekly, Daystar, The Dominion Post, The Evening Post, Otago Daily Times, Eco-Living, Cutting Edge, Communiqué, Christian Herald, Church Times, Good News Paper, Wel-Com, Youth Worker, Anglican Taonga, Faces Mag, Beliefnet, The Secret Place, and the Upper Room devotional.
