A Tribute to Mom;
Some sit and complain when their days draw shorter. Others curse God for giving them so few of them. But then there is one who remembers that her days on this Earth are merely a stopover to a better place and lifts up prayers for those she loves and those who love her that Heaven might be a very crowded place indeed.
Working on another Zero Hero episode and after writing eight of them all ready, I find it is hard to be funny without repeating old gags and jokes. There are those occasions when a writer just has to power through and put something on paper - or the computer. Then the rewrite process begins in an attempt to make the story humorous. Yeah, right now I am stalling by writing this little ditty until the funny stuff comes to mind. Yep, sometimes it is hard to be funny. It is almost like work...
Every good story starts with an idea however small and incomplete. I have found that some of my best storylines begin with a short story that is then given more flesh as the characters are explored for their depth. I give you such a potential story, one that I might someday take further. It started with a thought; two people meet while climbing the steps to the Eiffel Tower. What happens to them that makes their lives so special that a reader might want to delve further? If you would like a few moments of pleasure reading, check out their story on my website under the tab of Raymond and Juliette. It is just a rough idea at the moment but see if it brings a smile, maybe a small tear to your eye.
"To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, 'If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'" John 8:31-32
