The Writing Game (As My Grandmother Called It)

He gestured with his chin, one of the best human moves there is – I’d like to see more of it – at the blank sheet of paper on the table.
“Thought I’d take a swing at writing, big guy. Writing a story. Made up. You know. Fiction.”
I did not know but whatever this was had that non-starter feeling about it. For some reason I thought right away about Hawaiian pants and tin futures.
(Chet and Bernie in Up On The Woof Top, coming Oct. 17. Preorderable. Is it too early to be buying holiday presents?)

    Ah, yes. The Hawaiian pants. That should be cut off and sold as Hawaiian shorts to surfers and skateboarders. The pant legs could be….hats?

    We know what will happen. The story will be stolen and plagiarized, be sold to Hollywood, become a hit movie and Bernie won’t see a penny.

    I am laughing at this post. Chet, everyone knows you have the best instincts.

    It is never too early to be buying holiday presents.

    And speaking of presents, if any of youse would like a 2024 Plunder On! calendar, make your voices heard. (Big Tiny, you are first on the list). Please let me know by October 5th if you would like one so that I may place the order. The cost is $25. Once I have the calendars, and your check, I will get them out as quickly as possible.

    Make today awesome!
