Here are some bits and pieces for 10 June 2014. Welcome to my girlie magazine. If you scan the sidebar you will see this publication is a different kind of girlie magazine. Don’t let all the photos of naked women fool you. We at the PittsburghFlashFiction take our erotic flash fiction seriously. We take karaoke as performance art seriously. And we take being a struggling writer very seriously.
Oh, and we take sex seriously, too. Can’t forget sex. When I tell some people that sex is the most important thing in the world, they think I’m just a dirty old man and not the philosopher that I really am.
Hell, if you take away sex you don’t have any people. You don’t have any animals, insects or plants. Without sex you don’t have life. See what a mean? Sex is cosmic.
Now I didn’t say sex is everything. Far from it. This girlie magazine focuses on sex as art and entertainment, but it is about so much more. Just like real life.
Well, when I publish a post like Bits & Pieces 10 June 2014, I really don’t have a specific topic to blog about. However, the Bits & Pieces posts have their readers. In these posts I just wander. We should all have goals in life, but sometimes we have to stop to smell the roses. So, I guess that’s what I do in the Bits & Pieces posts.
The Old Soldier (that’s me) has never been able to manage his money. Even when I was a young man. Now that I’m retired nothing has changed. I get all my money the first three days of each month. Oh, I have enough discipline to take care of my bills, but then I have a good time until my money runs out.
Which means that I’ll hang out at Armand’s on Liberty Avenue in Little Italy a few more times but I won’t make karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy this Saturday night. Yes, the Old Soldier is a flawed human being. We’re talking personal finances here people. And since 99.9% of writers do not make a living at writing, personal finances should be right at the top of the list of a writer’s concerns about his or her writing career. I told you this girlie magazine was about a lot more than sex.
These are my bits and pieces for 10 June 2014.
Remember, one of the first things I do when I get up (no matter how early or how late) is to feature a different erotic flash fiction story on the front page. That’s to entice you to keep coming back several times a week.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the PittsburghFlashFiction, a different kind of girlie magazine.
