New Tricks For An Old Dog

Shiras bull moose in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

I’ve been semi-sequestered in my office lately, learning and relearning how to write with a consistent style. This new job at Fstoppers has tweaked my thinking. With my first article submitted and approved for publication, the editor’s notes have reminded me that I’m going to have to polish my style a bit. Nothing egregious mind you, but I’m reminded that my college English courses were taken some 30+ years ago and the things I learned and have embedded in my writing are not really current by today’s standards. The linguistics of a Kentucky boy aren’t quite up to par. I keep reminding myself though, it’s the flow of the story that matters most to me. The technicalities can be learned, but learning to write with interest and flow, perhaps that’s something a little more difficult to learn. Learn I will. We never stop learning.

Ah, the laments of an amateur. It’s a question of new tricks for an old dog.

Happy Moose Monday by the way.

To Infinity and Beyond

I’m happy to announce that I’ve accepted a position as a Staff Writer for Fstoppers online photography website.

With over 1.5 million page hits per year, Fstoppers is one of the largest photography related websites on the internet and I’ll be starting in July.

This should be a win-win for both my business and for Fstoppers.

When I begin publishing my Fstoppers articles, I’ll share those links here and on Facebook and Twitter.

My articles will primarily focus on Nature and Wildlife photography in Colorado, but I’m sure I’ll be writing about a wide variety of things beyond the borders of Colorado.

I’m excited about this development and I’m looking forward to broadening my horizons as well as providing interesting and educational photography articles for the world.

 

Roasted Chicken – A short story

My intentions for the future are to resume writing short stories and books.

I’ve written many short stories in the past, some of which were published and I’ll be adding those to the blog as well as an archive.

Here’s my first addition from the past…  “Roasted Chicken”
