It was a rude question, in my opinion. Not the words said, but the way she said them. "How many?" she squeaked. "Don't you have enough to do? Isn't one book at a time enough? What about the presentations you do?" "Did - the kid's taking that over now." "Still, three courses, and while you're … Continue reading How Many?
Here is a part-quote from a first reader about the new story (Not On The Cards): I enjoyed the book. It read like a short story -- very fast paced, very focused on plot. I got caught up in Chiri's desires. Isn't that what every writer wants to hear? Thank you, M. Ooh! And I … Continue reading A Storyteller’s Life

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
Original isn’t the goal. Nor is expectation. There’s a story idea, a germ or seed that wants to grow. It’s my job to find the best position for that seed, to give it the…

This one from Cats N Dogs (copyright Cage Dunn 2017), stories of our constant companions. Friday Night The traffic was snarled so far back from Caro’s turn-off she was tempted to drive along the emergency lane to get out. She was already so late, maybe even too late. Had to get there; had to pick up … Continue reading A Short Story – Friday Night

I hope you enjoy this little snippet from my life as a writer.
Well, I’ve just started on my one and only coffee for the day, and … realised just how difficult things can be before that moment. Coffee doesn’t save me, it doesn’t perk me, it doesn’t actually do anything, but the day will not kick into gear without it. I’m not a junky. It’s only one. But it has to be at the right time. This time, or everthing goes off-key for the rest of the day.
And that’s not how I want it to be. It can’t be. I have a job that defines how I see myself, who I am. I need to find inspiration at ‘this’ time every day. It’s my job. An important job.
Not a paying job. Not earning enough to pay tax. But it’s my full-time professional output based on years of experience and learning and continual updating of skills.
What do I do?
