Aboot!

Not sure what to say here.  I am an old guy who likes calamari, tortilla chips, flying discs, and ice hockey.  I used to bore holes in the ocean and now, I have decided to try my hand at blogging.

I have been a writer for years although I would never have described myself as such.  In my days  I have written fiction, technical, and other.  I spent years writing technical and business communication to people who spoke English albeit not as their first or primary language.  These are the friends who encouraged me to pursue writing.  These are the friends who said I had an uncanny ability to make things clear for them.

I’ve been playing around a bit with “Flash Fiction” and “Micro Fiction”.  The idea intrigues me and I’m practicing. I’m really leaning on a couple of challenge sites out there and encourage you to visit GrammarGhoulPress and The Blog Propellant (two really good ones who deserve your patronage). I can hone this, though it will be easier for me when I know which edge to sharpen.

Your feedback is appreciated and thanks for reading my stuff.  Note that I believe:

Pingbacks are cool
Comments are super cool
Likes are the ultimate

I want to thank each and every one of you who have opted to follow my blog.  I don’t take this lightly and hope that I can continue to live up to your expectations.

Thom

      • Thanks so much for the encouragement and for the advice ! Generally speaking I avoid all parks at night but I am now wondering if you have a story lurking somewhere in that comment?

  4. So we believe you received an ultimate for Aboot and here is the ‘super cool’ effect. From the above ‘super cool’ effects, we could grasp that you are a well established blogger already. Keep up the blogging and keep us engaged. :-)Thank you for stopping by our blog.

  5. Hi there Tnkrr! Great blog! Very entertaining! I have a question, how are you inserting all of the pingbacks after writing a daily prompt? I can’t figure out how you are doing that without physically clicking on each link and doing the html code manually. Please share your enlightening ways. 😀

    • Hey Swoosieque – its pretty easy to do if you are working in the old school post editor (not the new Boop, boop, boop one that they recently added). What I do is from the daily prompt page ‘select’ all the entries on the grid (and only the grid entries).
      Right click and copy (or Control+C)
      Go back to your post editor and position the cursor where you want to add the links
      Right click and paste (or Control+V)
      That’s pretty much all there is to it. Let me know if you have any problems.

    • Thanks Susan – truly an honor. I may never do anything with it, which is a blatant violation of the rules but I am touched and happy that you thought of me.
      All the best – stay well.

  8. Hi! I stumbled on your blog because of our mutual appreciation of GrammarGhoulPress. Kudos on the flash fiction and micro fiction work on your blog. I have trouble narrowing my writing to so few words myself. Looking forward to connecting! 🙂
