Free Anti-Virus Software

So you're considering a free anti-virus program for Microsoft?

When it comes to anti-virus protection you get what you pay for.  I've seen too many cases of people with viral infections because of the free anti-virus programs that they use.

My guide to better writing

I’ve decided to start this page with a few ideas that I have on how to become a better writer.

I’ll start by telling you that I am no where near close to being a great writer.  I don’t even consider myself a good writer.  I do however, consider myself to be somewhat competent and I have every confidence in myself and my abilities as a writer.

Kitchner Blues Festival

I just found out that Johnny Winter, Jimmy Vaughan and John Mayall, three of my favorite blues artists, are going to be among the performers that will be appearing this year at the Kitchner Blues Festival from August 5th to August 7th.  I’d love to attend the show but unfortunately prior commitments are keeping that from happening.

Here is a excerpt from a project I am currently working on. Please remember that it is a work in progress and not a polished piece of work.

How To Become a Literary Critic

If you’ve read the ‘About Me’ page then you’ll know that I am currently working as an unpublished writer and that I have four children with a fifth on the way.

I have been scouring the internet researching possible jobs that I could do that would keep me as close to writing as possible while I continue to hone my craft.

One possibility that has crossed my mind is to become a literary critic and I thought that I’d share some information that I have come across.


Having made the decision to pursue my goal of becoming a successful writer I now have some decisions to make.  The first thing I need to do is decide what I mean by successful.
