I think it’s time for another venture into the TROVE. Betcha there’s some grand ideas in History which would help with the perceived transport problems of the early 21st century.  Firstly, THE BICYCLE.

Yep. First one up is a little ripper.

10 Tips on Writing the Living Web

by MARK BERNSTEIN

Write honestly. Don’t hide, and don’t stop short. When writing about things that matter, you may be tempted to flee to safe, familiar havens: the familiar, the sentimental, the fashionable. Try to find the strength to be honest, to avoid starting the journey with passion and ending it with someone else’s tired formula. The work may be hard, it may be embarrassing, but it will be true – and it will be you, not a tired formula or an empty design. And if you can be satisfied with that tired formula, you aren’t writing for a reason.

LAST NIGHT’S ONLINE SCRABBLE GAME WITH AN OPPONENT IN INDIA. HE PLACED THE TILES THAT SPELL MY MOTHER’S NAME WITHOUT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT ME AT ALL.

And the new tiles seem to tell me

U R WEIRD

 

From Mark Bernstein

At the same time, steel yourself to expect the unexpected visitor and the uninvited guest; the most unlikely people may read your work. Your mother, who never uses a computer, may read your intimate weblog one day in the library. To be honest with the world, you may need to be honest with your mother; if you cannot face your mother, perhaps you are not ready to write for the world.

AUSTRALIAN BLOGS I AM STUMBLING ACROSS THIS COLD WET TUESDAY

SITES2C

 

 

 

 

Its cold and wet here today so I am taking what used to be called a Surf through the Net. Mine is more like an amble. I am trying to stay Australian with this selection. I have already come across an Australian Ethos which pleases me well. Through the SYDNEY EYE I discovered FREE FALLING who indulges in GENERAL BLUDGING . Me, myself, I describe as perfecting the ART OF IDLING. And SYDNEY EYE   is subtitled “ besotted with shabbiness”. Kindred spirits the three of us.

Sydney Eye leads me on to CLARENCE VALLEY TODAY. The Clarence is just up the road from here – maybe an hour’s drive.
