  1. And goodbye again.

    Well, Gertie and her top 25 are not going to happen, here or anywhere else as, because of someone who misinterpreted my previous post, I feel like I have to leave again. I'm not going to walk on eggshells for anybody.


    So, unfortunately, I won't be doing top 25s here or anywhere else. And even my memoirs of my mother are going to have to be limited to the two chapters I've posted so far. I was going to post the third entry tomorrow but now that isn't going to happen.

  2. Who would be interested in a personal top 25 albums list?

    Okay, I guess I should preface that I have a blog somewhere in the, uh, blogosphere. I can't really advertise that here, nor would I want to.

    But, basically, at the music forum I was at, I was working on a top 25 albums list for every year from 1955-2017. I managed to get up to 1966 before the atmosphere was too toxic for me to continue at that forum. I then came up with the brainstorm of doing the list on a blog in the voice of my favorite protagonist, Gertie Strawberry. I wish Schrody ...

  3. I'm home :)

    Well, it's been a few months since I was regular on this forum and a few things happened while I was away. most of it not very good.

    I believe I mentioned I joined a music forum in the interim. For a while, most of the time anyway, I was happy there. I was working on a top 25 albums project (Still working on it actually though not for that forum). The atmosphere was totally different than it is here though and it was the atmosphere at the music forum that I feared would somehow rear ...

  4. In my two months in the wilderness, I've discovered something rather sad.

    Forums just don't like nice people.

    I left this forum two months ago because of what I saw as a trend to drive out those that weren't of writing quality, the Lounge Lizards as I affectionately call them. I had a nasty dispute with PiP, and that was the last straw for me. I stepped down, and I guess things are going okay here. It still doesn't seem to be the same place I remember though.


    So I tried another Writing Forum, and it seemed okay over there. But I was also ...

  5. My second (and last) blog

    Hello, all


    Not to sound over-dramatic here but when I joined staff, I made a pledge that I would keep neutral in the forums as I needed to act independently whenever a thread got out of control, whether I agreed with the subject matter or not. I've had to caution or even sanction not only members whose posts I might find repulsive, I've also had to deal with members who I may have agreed with but whose posts were of the inflammatory variety.

    It is obvious why there ...

  6. Thoughts on depression and the WF

    Okay I know what you’re thinking. Ole Mrmustard is in a gloomy mood. Actually for those who may be concerned at the provocative title, Mrmustard, or Mustard, or 615, all said with affection, is perfectly fine.

    No this is about some of my observations I've seen on this forum in the six weeks or so that I've been posting, I've noticed that there are a handful of people who are quite open with their depression. More to the point we seem to have a recent spate of young writers who are suffering ...
