Just a short note to readers re: my planned activity for future posts.
Since September, I’ve had the opportunity to write a monthly newspaper column – ‘Music in Me’ – and as such, I submit it every 3rd week in the month. (I’ve been simultaneously releasing it to the www.fredparry.ca blog.) It just means that you can expect a regular submission, at that time.
In addition, I plan to continue to write non-music related submissions exclusively to the blog – from time to time.
I’ve also been working on a short story format that will hopefully be released in the near future. Whereas, the normal blog post is approx 600 -700 words, this effort would be in the range of 1200 – 2000 words. (I hope I don’t scare any of you off!) It’s the normal way of things for a writer to branch out; and I’m quite excited about the possibilities of developing various themes, in more depth.
In any event, I wanted you to know that whatever the format, I will continue to put quality over quantity. My mentor, D.G., has assured me that as long as I continue to write my essays with honesty, and as much skill as I have, it will only get better the more I do it.
I believe that; and, if you’ve stayed with me this long, I trust you will appreciate the end product in new ways.
With much gratitude,
