Onward!

I have just written a long post on my other blog.  http://writingforjoy.blogspot.com  I do not wish to merely duplicate it here. So I will write here about my sadness that Michael Allen will not be writing his blog for a long time. I will miss him. I will miss his guidance, his wit, his intellect, his grasp of the publishing world. At least, I can console myself by reading the rest of his books and learning from them. He is a darned good author! He is also, by my reckoning, the patron saint of the writer struggling for recognition. Thank you Michael. http://grumpyoldbookman.blogspot.com is still there for folk to read many a good posting, and also some of his stories and essays.

2012 UPDATE — MICHAEL ALLEN IS BACK! THE GRUMPY OLD BOOKMAN IS AGAIN WRITING ON HIS BLOG. WITTY AND WISE — A GOOD COMBINATION!

    Hello Gladys! You just alerted me to Michael Allen’s departure from blogging. When I recovered from the shock I charged over there to find, no, I wasn’t dreaming and nor were you up to mischief.

    I have just posted by farewell to him, the 31st so far. He is a legend, and I found you through his site.

    Oh, and by the way, please post the precise web address of ‘Writing for Joy’, coz I can’t find it with your address above nor by googling for it.
