  1. Another brilliant instalment in the biography of Mr Frumple. Keep it up. I’m hooked.

      Thank you! I hope I don’t write myself into a corner. I think Sonya needs a chapter, and I might write Ivanka’s death from her own pov.

      I’ve been enjoying your poetry. Do you read poetry for inspiration or is your mind already in that place that thinks poetically? If the former, who do you read? I tend to struggle with poetry whereas prose narrative forms a sustainable groove in the road (albeit Frumple was born in a poem).

      1. I never studied poetry. In fact I had a Roman Catholic nun as an English teacher. For some reason I decided to explain to her why I was an atheist…after which, every time I wrote an essay she would score a red pen through it and say, “This is what God thinks of atheists!”. So, I failed English exams, and switched off. Suddenly, aged 59, I want to write! It’s just falling out, good and bad, and I have no inclination to switch off the tap. I’ve signed up for a writing class at the university, so will start reading as much as I can. Poetry seems to fall out more easily than stories, by far. I don’t have your imagination for fiction – everything I’ve written so far has been autobiographical, for better or worse. We shall see…

        I attended a Catholic high school, where I failed to show interest in most classes. I also embraced atheism. Oddly, as my parents considered kicking me out of the house for not attending confirmation, Father Leroy came to my defense, showing an appreciate for independent thought. He also drove a transam and listened to Judas Priest. Can’t say that the church is fairing too well these days.

        I’ll be eager to hear about that course at Edinburgh U. As with all things, I’m sure it will depend on the chemistry of the participants.

      Glad you are enjoying the absurdity, Joe!
