Join me at Patreon for exclusive content and benefitsFind all my titles at myauthor pageThe marketing experts say authors need a compelling biography They say we should answer the following four questions, because this is the information you, the reader, really want to know Why do I write I write because I have an obsession with writing which borders on a mental disorder I ve often wondered if I can get medicated for this condition, but it s much cheaper and easier to spend time at a keyboard How long have I been at it I d love to tell you I had some magical writing awakening, but the truth is I ve been writing since I could combine a noun and a verb to form a sentence Not sure when that was or what I used Probably the red crayon on the kitchen wall incident It was a good story, but not well received What is my inspiration I m inspired to write so I don t have to find another pastime I ve tried stamp collecting, golf and other forms of self harm, and writing seems to be the least destructive to my mental well being and the environment I also I have an allergy to churning out books in a specific genre, which makes me a difficult author to follow Sorry about that Do I have a pet, is it cute and what s its name I do have a pet My wife thinks it s cute It s actually the embodiment of evil with a soft coat Amongst other names, I call it the Anti Bob If you d like to know why, read The End and Other StoriesThanks for reading,MG.

    There sto this story than meets the eye After reading it the first time, I immediately had to read it over again to see what I d missed Also, the story features an epic novel opening sentence worthy of the Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest, which is worth the price of admission all by itself.

    This is a little tribute to one of the best authors in the world, J.R.R Tolkien This short story is an innovative way to teach readers about overcoming writer s block The main character, R.J.J, is an ordinary man living an unremarkable life He doesn t really have strong feelings for his job It just helps him get by If he had strong feelings for something, it would be for Noodles and for J.R.R Tolkien When we re so immersed in a particular story, it s remarkably easy to picture ourselves in This is a little tribute to one of the best authors in the world, J.R.R Tolkien This short story is an innovative way to teach readers about overcoming writer s block The main character, R.J.J, is an ordinary man living an unremarkable life He doesn t really have strong feelings for his job It just helps him get by If he had strong feelings for something, it would be for Noodles and for J.R.R Tolkien When we re so immersed in a particular story, it s remarkably easy to picture ourselves in our favorite book, with our favorite characters For R.J.J s case, because he admired Tolkien a lot, he found himself lost in 1954 the year Tolkien published The Lord of the Rings I won t tell you the rest of the story I will remind you that this is a creative and entertaining way to teach writers about overcoming our archenemy writer s block.Tolkien has influenced this ordinary man, who has no extraordinary ambitions, to dream big R.J.J s dream made him realize what he really wanted to do to write What this book teaches authors who are trying to conceive another book and aspiring authors who are wracking their brain for a brilliant idea is that writer s block isn t something you should fear It s something you should face head on.The simple solution to writer s block is to keep writing If you do, one idea will lead to another, and your book will, eventually, take its shape.This unconventional way of teaching readers about overcoming writer s block really entertained me I thought the writing was great The story was fun Moreover, the message was subtly and effectively embedded in the story I highly recommend this book

    A clever story by the witty Michael Gardner This time, his character, RJJ Token, is swept back in time, leaving his very humdrum life, for the year 1954 Of course, that just so happens to be the year The Fellowship of the Ring was published the first volume of what would become The Lord of the Rings by a certain JRR Tolkien Notice the similarity in the names Problem is, the novel and the famous author have disappeared And Mr Token must do something about that The story involves an A clever story by the witty Michael Gardner This time, his character, RJJ Token, is swept back in time, leaving his very humdrum life, for the year 1954 Of course, that just so happens to be the year The Fellowship of the Ring was published the first volume of what would become The Lord of the Rings by a certain JRR Tolkien Notice the similarity in the names Problem is, the novel and the famous author have disappeared And Mr Token must do something about that The story involves an old typewriter, a hunk of wood Mr Token names Writer s Block, and an interesting time getting to know Mr Token, token writer, perhaps who discovers a way to overcome the humdrumness of his life, and well, I don t want to spoil it for anyone Read the story and see for yourself

    Writer s Block is a delightful story that held me spellbound from the first lines to the last As the tale begins, the author sets up the scenario and we ease into the story as effortlessly as sliding along a polished floor in cotton socks Then suddenly, poof, we re transported back in time where we ponder, along with RJJ, the protagonist, problems of how we will survive How will we live Were, when, and how will we get money What are we going do to RJJ is a well developed, three dimensio Writer s Block is a delightful story that held me spellbound from the first lines to the last As the tale begins, the author sets up the scenario and we ease into the story as effortlessly as sliding along a polished floor in cotton socks Then suddenly, poof, we re transported back in time where we ponder, along with RJJ, the protagonist, problems of how we will survive How will we live Were, when, and how will we get money What are we going do to RJJ is a well developed, three dimensional character, the settings have loads of details so that the reader is securely immersed in each scene, and the plot moves along smoothly toward a well thought out conclusion.Five stars for this wonderful tale that I highly recommend you read

    Wonderfully crafted little short story little as in little diamond, cut, polished, and all sparkly For an unremarkable character, RJJ, properly known as Mr Token, is delightfully engaging The story itself flows effortlessly through a rupture in time, depositing the reader practically in Mr Tolkien s lap I mean, Mr Token His lap Where I can curl up as comfortably as his cat, watching with delighted curiosity as he overcomes the dreaded Writer s Block Simply brilliant.
