I found a typewriter!

Hello everyone!

Since yesterday, I have been crazy ecstatic about a little discovery I made. Look at this beauty!

My mother completely forgot to tell me that there was a typewriter in our apartment. I moved back home more than a month ago and I didn’t know it was here. It was actually at the bottom of MY NIGHTSTAND. I was cleaning up my room and just organizing some things I was postponing and then I just noticed this green case, pulled it out and found this beautiful typewriter there.

I remember commenting about it on Twitter with one of the poets I follow and we were actually talking about writing books on old typewriters. I don’t know how much do you believe in signs but I think this might be a sign I should start writing my first book because I’ve been talking about it for ages. I think…

Five For Friday: Hilarious book dedications

September 5, 2018 1 comment

Story Empire

Hello SErs! Harmony here. Happy Friday! To round off our week here on Story Empire, I thought I’d finish on a happy note. Have you ever read a book dedication along the lines of ‘To Emma’ and wondered ‘who the hell is Emma?’ … It’s a bit boring, right? How about giving the general reader a little more? … ‘To Emma, my wife, who wouldn’t let me stop writing’. Much better! In writing this post, I’ve learned something, and my future dedications will be a bit different than thus far, lols 🙂

This post was born because, being a random kind of a gal (at times), I found something totally random on the web for you: Five Funny book dedications (in no particular order) …

The Immortal Jukebox

A true message always gets through.

Sometimes it just takes a while.

Over 40 years a Song can, starting out as an unremarked track on a little regarded album from a little known Band, become a veritable anthem recorded hundreds of times and exalted in concert by the great and the good from The Boss to Bill Murray to Mavis Staples.

My own relationship with today’s featured Song began many decades ago in my teenage gig going years.

Loyal readers of The Jukebox will know that I have made a series of House moves in the last few years before settling happily here in our South Downs hideaway.

One of the ‘finds’ of the moving process was a notebook with the title, ‘Gig Diary 1970 – 1975’ emblazoned in red ink on the cover.

Leafing through this historically important artefact I see that in that period I saw Nick Lowe…

Murder by Munchausen, on #LisaBurtonRadio

Entertaining Stories

Lisa Burton

Welcome all you hackers and programmers, and all the artificial intelligence listening in today. This is Lisa Burton Radio, and I’m your host, Lisa the robot girl. I’m pretty excited about this interview, because my special guest today is a police consultant working in the Counter IT section of the Artificial Crimes Unit. “Welcome to the show, someone who only goes by the name of Q.”

“First off, I just have to say, this really isn’t my kind of gig—I mean, it’s good to meet you, definitely, but when you work and play in the shadows, the spotlight tends not to be your friend. I guess, when you’re doing penance, though, you do what you gotta do. So, here I am.”

“It all sounds pretty covert to me. I’ve never known a cop who had a code name.”

“I’m not really a cop, per se. Now, the Department does sign…
