Tight Focus

Greetings from the Hermit-Writer

Hope you're having a great week


  1. Those are some great looking train tracks.

  2. zo te zien kan de wissel ook nog hand bediend worden?

  3. I never tire of the romance of rail (or sea) travel.

  4. These are really wonderful! Especially the first shot. I felt like I was on the ground looking at those tracks. Excellent perspective.

  5. The railway embankment at the top of our road held anti aircraft guns during the war and was full of war time debris, some of it dangerous, after the war. It also allowed us grand stand seats (with binoculars) of the Grand National, and promised an endless walk/adventure for very small children.

    On to another topic. Does this very positive article hold true with your own experience? You are obviously a very good person to ask

    1. Hi Mike...I don't terribly disagree with any of his statements, as long as you keep in mind they are generalizations. He neglects two of the most harmful elements in Indie publishing, the two most important factors Indies should be paying attention to.

      I read exclusively Indie books, and only 1 in 20 are worth reading through the first 3 chapters. Independence frees writers to get really horrible crap out there.

      Secondly. so many, many, many authors are giving away their work for free, and there are so many Indies, so many free novels out there, the market is flooded, and flooded with really bad writing, which instills the prejudice in readers that self-published writing is crap.

      We have so many obstacles to becoming successful. Shame we're shooting ourselves in the foot over and over again.

      Sorry for the rant.
