Good News & Bad News

Leave a comment

As the post says I have good news and bad news. I’m going to give the bad news first so that hopefully the good news will soften the blow.

As some of you may already know, Steve Irwin “The Crocodile Hunter” passed away yesterday. He was killed by a stingray barb to the heart while doing a new documentary. He left behind his American wife Terri and two children. This is tragic news for anyone that is familiar with his work on and off screen. He did so much for Australia and various wildlife conservation efforts across the world. He showed millions that reptiles are not animals that should just be feared, but animals that should be respected and loved just as any other animal.

Mr. Irwin will be sorely missed. I already miss you Steve :(.


Now for the good news I suppose.Last night I was doing some thinking about what I was going to write about. For those that are new to my writing or the way I work, I don’t think up entire stories and do outlines and such. The problem with outlines, for me anyway, is I have no interest in actually doing the full writing because it’s already been written out, leaving me with no mystery or new things. So, for the most part I think of a single interesting idea to write about and that’s what usually sparks my interest.
In other words, I have the beginning of a story. I just need to come up with a few things first before I start writing. But, don’t you worry, there will be some writing on here for sure in the next month or so. I will however keep this thing updated regardless until such time as I have writing to produce. Maybe I’ll put a short story I’ve written up here or something. Who knows.Anywho…
