I Have Stories To Tell! Episode the 6th

Boy howdy and howdy to the writer creating this post because he'll need all the help he can muster as writing on the fly is something that he's a little bit rusty at, and welcome to the skewered literary world of G.B. Miller, where necessity is the mother of Creativity In Action {which is the title of an actual story that you can find this very fine short story trilogy}.

Yes, writing on the fly is something that I'm definitely out of practice with, since the fiasco that was Tumblr forced me to pre-write my all of my posts on either WordPad or NotePad (both very decent products if you ain't got Word) prior to posting them there.

But writing on the fly, or rather, creating on the fly is a necessity for today's post. This past week was truly an exercise in stupid, since family life (a tragedy that happen to one of my daughter's closest friends on New Year's Eve/Day), work, personal issues (eye doctor), more work, (mini-fires and new employee orientation), overtime (to finish what I didn't do the previous day) and of course, writing.

Speaking of writing, I'm just about done with chapter six, which ends the 1st part of "The Friendship Has Ended". Once this is completed, the book will be shelved for a minimum of six months as I turn my attention to getting book #2 ready for publication. My main concern was finding a good enough spot to stop at, so when I pick it back up a few months later, I can spend just a few minutes in re-reading and picking up where I left off at. The only other thing that I'll need to write is probably a short outline detailing the points that I'll still need to cover in order to complete the novel.

So, here we are at the midway point of our post, and like I stated, I need to do some writing on the fly. I'm a bit rusty at writing on the fly these days, since our imagination has gotten a bit stale at times. Granted, at times, we've had continuous Twitter oriented spurts to open up our Tumblr blog posts for the past two years.

A good example would be the one that I wrote for my very last {12/1/18} Tumblr blog post (sorry, that blog has ceased to be as I nuked it last month in protest of their massive censorship decision to make their entire platform PG-13. As a side note, I will probably be sharing snippets from that defunct blog for the foreseeable future). It was witty, provocative and possibly offensive to millennials and SJW's.

Boy howdy and howdy to girls who use what the deity of their choice graced them with to get whatever they want out of life, no questions asked, and welcome to the skewered literary world of G.B. Miller, where being rude, crude and vile used to be a lyric to a Weird Al song but now is sadly a very real thing.

Okay, maybe that wasn't a good one, but this intro from my blog post of 11/24/18 was about as serious as I would get for an intro. The blog post itself was about reducing stress on SlapMyFaceUntilIBook.

Boy howdy and a major raspberry to the parents of a Canisius College student athlete who threatened her with excommunication from the family unless she went through so-called "gay conversion therapy". She rightfully declined and they excommunicated her with extreme prejudice (article to be found in The Advocate, which sadly I have no link to as I read it on my smart phone via the Smart News app).

Personally, I always thought that "gay conversion therapy" was a big fat joke. Genetically, you either are or aren't. Case closed. You don't get to choose, genetics does. But I digress, as there is a time and a place for discussions like this and presently, I'm not quite ready to offer the other 1 3/4 cents of my 2 cents at this time.

Let's hope that the 3rd time is a charm. From my blog post of 11/17/18.

Boy howdy and howdy to the delicious wing-nut that seems so tantalizingly out of reach that you simply sigh and quiver your bottom lip in disappointment and welcome to the wide, wide, wide, wide and most definitely unbalanced world of G.B. Miller, whose idea of a good Christmas movie is Eddie Izzard's "Lost Christmas".

Now this one has it all: a sexually ambiguous opening statement because it can mean either MF, FM, FF or MM; and a small snippet of the kind of extras (t.v., music, film, etc) that makes me, me. I'd first saw this movie 2017 and I was absolutely floored by it. I love weird Christmas movies, especially some of the weird mutations of "A Christmas Carol" and this one is in my top 5 of strange seasonal/topical movies.

And thus, ends our Creativity In Action. Tune in next week when I should be back to myAbie Normal self. As always, you can follow me on that other socialized media website.

  1. I'm with you on the gay conversion therapy! Thankfully, the ultra-conservative religious zealots (I think they're referred to as alt-right in the U.S.?) who practice it are a small minority. (At least, that's my hope.) Something like that would surely screw somebody up for life!

  2. The "alt-right" here are those who are racist in nature and who believe in write power. Enough uninformed people practice this garbage to the point where a lot of states have passed laws banning this particular kind of therapy.

  3. Good morning, G.B.!
    The ins and outs of blogging for me are all to be discovered as my blog is less than two weeks old, but I am getting to my feet and, while I'm mostly shouting into an empty room, I know I'll learn a lot by visiting here as new content is posted. Will look at archived material before leaving today.
    I have one question for you: Have you found Blogger to be more open-minded than the "PG-13" site you were using before. I certainly would hate to be editorialized in such a way.

    1. To a degree, yes, Blogger is open minded. If you write predominately adult-oriented material, as opposed to the generalized stuff that we write now, there is an option in the settings to label your blog as "adult". What that does is that it puts a page in front of your blog that forces people to answer either "yes" or "no" before viewing your blog, which in turns can eliminate unwanted complaints about being offensive (can't complain about being offended if you had to answer a question to begin with about viewing adult material)

      They do enforce their T.O.S on a consistent basis, so I will give them credit for that. I do have one of my archive blogs, "It's Always Saturday In Suburbia" as "adult" because I have some very provocative/explicit stuff posted there.

      All my blogs are available for perusing, as I did create a lot of stuff over the past decade (1500+ posts spread out over 5 blogs).


Lay it on me, because unlike others, I can handle it.
