It is because you made it.

The other day, I was looking at a painting that I had got from my relative. I found his artwork very nice, and I hung it on the wall. I remember him warning me that it had imperfections, and how he laughed about it somewhat.

Personally, I did not see the imperfections as imperfections, but rather as a staple of his works. I mean this in a good way. I have imperfections in my books as well. Just that I take them to be a staple of my works. It maybe in the way of my grammar, my way of speech, or whatever. It is unique, and it what makes us or our works truly unique. And it is what makes us special.

That is just the way it goes for me. When people bring their works over, whether it be books or artwork, if the creator thinks they may have a blemish or a certain default to their style, I take it as a certain brushstroke to a creation.

When I read through my books, there are certain elements to it where an author sits there and contemplates the direction and strength of the writings. But, when the product has been reviewed so many times, it leaves great room for the reader and critic alike to pick it apart, or to praise it up despite certain aspects of it.

This is what makes creating something, whether from woodworking, sculpturing, or manufacturing cars, a most interesting time for when it is first released. Imperfections, if able to find any, sometimes allot, are a staple of the creator and it does tell a little bit about us all..

I want to wish everyone a very, peaceful, and happy Easter weekend!!!

Have to go, till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
