I'm taking some time off

Gentle readers of this blog, thank you for giving me an audience to write for.

At this point I've decided to quite blogging every week. My obligations to my work as a publisher and editor (my day jobs) have grown greatly in recent weeks, and I seem to be running out of time and energy for posting blogs, at least on a regular basis.

I will still occasionally and sporadically post my two cents' worth when I feel I have something important or entertaining to say about the joy of story, and when I do I'll spread the word by Facebook and email; but don't expect to hear from me on a regular basis.

I wish all of you who are readers and/or writers continued joy in the discovery of story!

John M. Daniel


  1. Hi, John.

    I am still a Luddite. So I don't have any idea what I am doing now. Well, at least I don't have any idea what I am doing on a "Post a Comment" on a blog, for God's sake. (And damn proud of it.)

    Still, I want you to know that you made a real difference in my life. You were kind and attentive to me at a time when I needed someone to be kind and attentive to me.

    I still have not re-written Woodland Prayer. Yet, Alma Hunter remains alive and well.

    For this, we thank you.

    And come 5/31/14, Susan Ramirez

    I continue "the discovery of story." It's lonely and sad and joyful too.

  2. Nice to hear from you, Susan/Alma. THank you for your kind words. Keep writing, if it gives you joy.
