the Unending Journey of the Wandering Author

A chronicle of the unending journey of the Wandering Author through life, with notes and observations made along the way. My readers should be aware I will not censor comments that disagree with me, but I do refuse to display comment spam or pointless, obscene rants. Humans may contact me at thewanderingauthor at yahoo dot com - I'll reply as I am able.

I have always known I was meant to write, even when I was too young to know the word 'author'. When I learned that books were printed, I developed an interest in that as well. And I have always been a wanderer, at least in my mind. It's not the worst trait in an author. For more, read my writing; every author illuminates their heart and soul on the pages they write upon.

"Oooh, Mum, look, look at this wicked paperweight! There's a whole little world inside, like you could just...."

"Don't be silly, Andrew, you're old enough to know better. Where are you - Andrew!?"

"Ahh, Madam, such a lovely paperweight, exquisite craftsmanship, isn't it? The woman I bought that from swore Faberge himself could never make anything so intricate, she tried to tell me some nonsense about elves, or something like that."

I wrote this as a six sentence story. I hope you enjoy it.

Oh...I loved this little piece, Ray. I was prepared to read a long one and then here it was a shortie. :-)
Tomorrow, I'll come and read another.
Thank you for your lovely words and like Lehane's, it is always a pleasure to read your stories.

I like how this one makes me wonder if the little world in that paperweight is, in fact, real. And maybe, LOL, better than ours.

Great six sentence story.
