I don't care what you say Richard so I might as well put you on ignore.

You might as well put everyone on ignore.

I floated a book proposal to a publisher today. That felt good.

I honestly don't care Candid. I don't care what you do, think or say.

I've got work in the morning. I'm drinking coffee and writing another 10 pages.

You cared enough to make a comment. What's with that?

Let me guess . . .

Oh dear. The bore is back under a new name but the same chip. I also don't care what you think before you say it.

And how does that effect me Jason? It doesn’t, which is the entire belabored point.

Nobody does, other than me. I care what I do, think and say. I haven't the least interest in your latest 10 pages of 'clever' non-sequiturs, but it's nice that you mentioned it because sending my own stuff to someone who might want to take a gamble on it always feels good to me. It takes courage to put yourself out there. You wonder if you should have read the whole thing through just one more time, even though you know it so well that you wouldn't notice if your most recent alterations made no sense. You have the hope that this time might be one of the happy occasions when a publisher says yes and you get into print again. That's never lost its savour for me since the appearance of my first book review about 40 years ago. The thrill never palls, or no one would go on labouring over their writing year after year, not knowing whether anyone else would ever see it.

A few months ago I was talking to a new acquaintance when she mentioned the Galapagos Islands. It transpired that she and her husband had gone there after reading about my trip in a magazine. On another occasion I discovered that a group meeting at Tullymore Community Centre in Belfast was studying one of my short stories.

So yeah, when you write something and put it out there you never know who will read it and be sufficiently intrigued to make the journey of a lifetime, or to use your work as an example of structure, plotting and characterisation. Something you've written could be enjoyed by people anywhere in the world, at any time, and you'd never know. Sticking it up on Amazon priced at 99p is too easy. There's no thrill in that, and most commonly no money either.

I'm drinking coffee and writing another 10 pages.


Well, I guess that keeps you quiet and entertained for a while.

Three nice examples of simple pleasures.
