Postcards from Mr. Pish Featured in Conversations Magazine

Postcards from Mr. PishK. S. Brooks’ Postcards from Mr. Pish, the first book in the educational children’s series featuring the friendly traveling terrier, appears in the latest issue of Conversations Magazine.  A smiling Atavion Webb displays his copy of Postcards from Mr. Pish in the article “Twelve New Year’s Resolutions for Kids: Stopping the Self-Entitled Mentality.”

For unknown reasons, they rejected my suggested title, “Stopping the Self-entitled Mentality: What’s in it for You.”

And hurry up about it. Mr. Pish is a dog, so every minute he has to wait for you to click is like seven minutes in dog-time.

Write SOMETHING each day.

Anthems for Authors – Lady Writer

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my first “Anthems for Authors” piece. I like songs about writers – a lot. But Lady Writer by Dire Straits is my favorite. That’s probably because Mark Knopfler wrote it for me. That’s right. You heard me. Yes, I have been on television – a few times. I know I made those appearances long after the song was released, but that doesn’t matter. As I said in my last post of this sort, this is one of those times when I exercise my right to replace reality with my version. That’s just how I roll.

So enjoy this video – the lyrics are fantastic and Knopfler’s guitar skills are legendary. And now, Lady Writer by Dire Straits.
