I have just added another childhood story to my blog. You can read it here:
I have quite a few more of these that I would still like to write, and in fact I am a fair way along on a few already. I had an idea a few years ago to assemble a collection of childhood yarns into a book called “BAKER’S DOZEN: stories from my first 13 years”. I wrote a few of the stories but got nowhere near enough (13 seemed the minimum) to publish, but now seems a good time to work at completing that project.
I may be able to combine it with another current goal, which is learning to draw with my left hand. It seems that the subject of childhood is an appropriate venue for these looser, scribblier scrawls. I am a long way from getting anything I am genuinely happy with but at least my left-handed drawings make me laugh, and that is half the battle.
