Hello readers. I’m glad you found your way to my new Blog site. George’s Cancer Blog on Facebook just doesn’t have the same cachet as a real WordPress published Blog. I have no idea what the difference is, but I am assured it’s true. So here we are on my new WordPress… er… spot.
In all seriousness, I have been told that transitioning to writing a book, as many of you have encouraged me to do, will be aided immensely by using a properly formatted blog. So let’s give it a try, shall we?
The title of this Blog, and the working title for the book, is “: 2 ;” or Colon to Semicolon. I think it captures the core subject while hinting at the humor we have tried to find somewhere in my bowels over the past eight months. In some ways I feel this is your book too. Especially those of you who have been here from the beginning. So I am open to other suggestions for titles. Bring ‘em on!
As you can probably tell from the fact that I have a working title, and that must after all be the most important and difficult part of writing a book, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to beginning the process. I have asked around and met a few people who know something more than I do about books, publishing and why new spruce shoots are a paler green. One piece of advice that I am sure is excellent is to compile a short series of excerpts so a publisher or agent can get a snapshot of the writing, style and content. To that end, I’m going to ask you all to help out a little.
Please go through the old posts on facebook and tell me which posts are your favourites. Find the ones that you think best show what you like about my writing or which you have found particularly informative or helpful in your journey. Thanks in advance for doing this.
So welcome to :2;. I hope you find it as comfortable as the original and twice as green.
