Some of you will know it already. Not directly about gender, but about truth and appearance. It is by the English poet, John Masefield.
Just taking a break from JoB- and SEE-related activities as random thoughts spark across my mind.
Every 18 months to 2 years, I post how I can't write, with the hope that my muse will get her dander up and show me. Here is another of those attempts. And no, my knowing that she knows might still work. Reverse psychology, if you will.
I am looking to help authors or others. That would like help with a website, website design. Graphic design, logo design, and book design, layout or other things.
The first comes with pix of some very attractive trans women.
I watched this today at a friend's house.
Well, here is a copy of what I said in church today:
I am transgender.
You might have guessed that, I mean, I don’t really know how well I “pass” so maybe you can tell by looking at me.
Getting involved with fictional characters is up to each individual.
While I don't have a high output to begin with, I suspect it may drop off for a few weeks. The kids are out of school and when they're not tying up the computer, they're still up and about.
This is just venting, but I feel the need to put it out there so I can get rid of it. This just happens to be the venue I'm in this morning.
Basically I messed up last night and got hurt.
I just finished reading an Anne McGaffery trilogy, "Petabea", and as I reflect on the experience I actually feel that there are not a few authors here who are equal or perhaps better than her.
I have published my twentieth ebook Salvations at Amazon. Like all my books, it's now only available in the Kindle format.
One of the no-no's I do is mixing point of views. I'll have the main character speaking in the first while other viewpoints are presented at the end of the chapter.
Has anybody heard from karen page latlely as she has not added any stories for quite while?
Just wondering, haven't seen any comments or blogs from Extravagance in a while. Loving Hugs Talia
Just a question for you all. I am considering publishing here the speech I will give at church on Sunday, and I wonder if I should do so as a "story" or a "blog"?
My best friend died last night.
I looked at the Huffpost entry re Texas bigotry, and found this. Pardon me while I weep happy tears,
I was born in Kew Gardens, Queens, a borough of NYC:
I'm putting together a collection of TG flash fiction.
Today is D-Day. A day to honor all those who went and did what they had to do, to ensure the freedom we all cherish.
It’s been slightly over a year since I started selling ebooks via the Amazon Kindle store and Smashwords. I thought I should share some information about the results with other writers.
My test results are mixed. The good - there is no arterial blockage in my coronary arteries. Great!
This is an interesting piece. Don't get sucked in.
Well, I didn't wanna worry anybody, but I have been in a pretty bad way the last couple of days in terms of depression.
Though I have received some wonderful support for my writing and my stories, there have been some requests from a few readers for more accessible content from me.
I am sitting on something very hot right now.
A few weeks ago, I got up from my computer, took 3 steps, and blacked out, getting a significant concussion from the fall.
This past weekend I flew home from Kansas City, MO, arriving home from the airport about 2:00 AM.
This is really important to me and I need a real answer, not just one that someone shoots out their butt. I am hoping that there is a psych person lurking here, please?
I worked a 12 hour day went to check my emails and found one from the TdF organisers about my training in a couple of weeks time.
Just got back from a sonogram. I went to the new Kaiser West Side Hospital. They set my appointment for the third floor. I checked in as usual using my male ID and the reaction was admirable.
We made the May hatbox numbers before the end of the month so thank you everyone who sent money. :)
The story im looking for is of a boy dressed by his cousins to go to a 60's themed dance and then got a job at a news station does any one have any idea what the name of it is
Is it just me, or are some of the most difficult stories to read the ones you wrote yourself?
Every comment is appreciated. Believe me, every single one.
My local newspaper has a 2-part story on the Transgender community:
As most of my long-time readers know, I try my best in this blog to be as honest as I possibly can, in part to make up for the amount of lying that was part of my life before.
Well here we are in June, nearly at the longest day of the year and still awaiting our first hot day, and I haven't posted anything for AGES.
A combination of factors has hit me ....
Been a long time since I posted anything and people might be wondering if I gave up writing for good or if I decided to join a circus or something.
I'm useless at writing blogs but today is a BIG day...... I'm taking estrogens and spironolactone for the first time in years. Last time, I chickened out.
A couple of questions really, about where I should go from here.
To those who do not like to read blogs or posts about crass fiscal concerns, A warning: this post is full of them, please don't read if you are offended by such.
First of all, allow me to thank everyone who has read, commented on, and kudoed the story so far. However...
Cathy has a life and it isn't holding my hand editing my stories. She does it anyway. Hand holding that is.
Sorry folks, been up in Lunnun all day as part of my training for the Tour de France (I'm not riding it, just helping to make it happen).
We have so great writer on BCTS and as of late there has been a shortage of stories from some of our regular writers and some of the long stories with multi chapters that never got finished.
It's termite swarm season here in Florida and guess whose house has got them. MINE.
Well, yesterday, I got chewed out by my Human Resources manager because I hadn't taken any vacation time during my last year of working for Walmart, and she and my supervisor insisted on me taking it
There I was sitting in a restaurant in Alamogordo, NM eating a meal and the 'server' said when you are ready you can use the device on your table to pay your bill.
Ok, I thought I'll do that.
Good news everyone.
I don't have to fix the exhaust leak in my car....
I saw this bit on Facebook but have been unable to find anything else about play times or locations. Can someone please keep me apprised of the situation?
Okay. I have a story ready to post. It's one I've edited by another writer. Here's my question. It's about 80,000 words, according to my info thingie in word.
I am not sure this is such a good idea unless people age 16 can get Medicare.
Here is a video I found showing a family coming to terms and accepting their new son, in order for him not to become a statistic but to live a happy life being who he is.
well, yesterday I went to the doctor's about my foot, and my 2nd worst fears have been confirmed.
I have added in the link to Penny's latest episode in the Indexy thingamajig.
Hi guys and girls. I'm not really new here but since this is my first time publishing I thought I would let you know that there is new Erotica on Kindle.
If you are one of "them" and word pronoun sensitive, there is going to be a lot of hurt in the world as people describe transgender, transsexuals.
Well, I got an unexpected act of kindness from Sharon last night.
Levar Burton has a Kickstarter going for Reading Rainbow.
It started May 28, 2014.
Somebody make her stop!
Everyday it's the same thing.
I say I'm a guy/man/boy and , and , she laughs at me!
She calls me a silly girl and such.
Problems with computer - I hate the stupid things and at the moment they are wasting far too much of my time.

Tomorrow I will have been on the road for 12 days, and If I could afford it, I would just live on the road. All someone would have to do is give me a couple thousand a month. Right.
I know it seems disloyal but I visit TGStoryTime from time to time. There's a link there from the Home page here. It's another story site and hosted by Joe SixPack.
well, I have a rough draft of what I want to say in church on June 8, and I would really like some opinions on it. If you're interested, please send me a private message.
I have posted a revised and greatly expanded the story of The Transformation of Lady James on top of the old one. If anyone wants to see and tell me if it is better I would like it very much
For those of you following Penny Lane's Tales of Anmar, I thought you might find this interesting.
I will post part 4 of my tale in a couple of days when I get to Durango. At the moment I'm about to watch the sun go down from inside Monument Valley.
called "Transformation Treasure Hunt." She wrote it in 2006, but while reading it, it seemed to be constantly reminding me of Bob Arnold. The link is here. Go read it and tell me I'm mistaken.
Hey guys. I'm looking at barefoot shoes and I heard all about the complaints before you go warning me.
Good News folks. Just finished speaking with Richard and he is improving rapidly. Doctors predict a full recovery and say that he is to be discharged tomorrow. Likely to a rehab unit.
Well, I have been asked if I wanted to speak at my church during the Pride service on June 8. If you're the praying type, pray I do the community and my God proud with my words.
I am writing to let you all know that my dear friend and our colleague here at BC, arianrhod, Richard, In San Diego, CA, USA, Has had a stroke and is in the hospital.
I don't see it as a problem. Most of what I read here are multiple part posts. I cant expect the writer to know ahead of time just how many words it will be.
An article that appeared in this morning's Observer might be of interest. I read it in the 'real' edition but it was hard to find in the on-line version but here it is:
Well, here's the rub. I. Am far too old and ugly to ever consider dressing 'appropriately'.
So I'm not going to go into too much Details with this on specific things. Simply because I tended to keep my nose out of those specific things for this one.
Once again this year I make my annual pilgrimage, I do my penance on this weekend of remembrance that we call Memorial Day here in the States.
Here’s something BC readers might enjoy.
I just finished reading a book called "But inside, I'm screaming".
This is in general response to another post. These are guidelines that I use and it has served me well.
This is Memorial Day weekend, 2014 and I think it behooves us all, no matter what nationality, race, creed or religion to take a moment and thank all those who have served and who are serving in the a
I'm still sorely lacking in reviews on Dear John on Amazon. And by "sorely lacking" I mean there ain't none.
Here are ten of my random thoughts this morning.
The final part of Dancing Queen (Chapter 30) has just been posted - for those who do not like to start reading stories until they are completed.
Is there a problem with the CrystalHall Forum?
Suddenly, I am unable to access it.
So, it all began a few days ago when my modem decided to limit my time on the internet, dropping the signal and kicking me offline.
Thanks to everyone who pointed out the mistakes in last chapter of Darin Dares. The post has now been revised to take into account several mistakes in the original version.
I have been waking early recently, like about 4 or half past.
This has vaguely helped my writing, or so I thought, because I could do a lot whilst the gentle snores emanate from the other room.
The book Mindful
or alternatively titled,
A Descent into Sanity., is out on Kindle.
You can buy it through Erin's Big Closet Amazon store. Here's a link.
