From author Alison Naomi Holt’s blog:
I’d like to welcome guest author, Kurt Brindley. I struck up a friendship with Kurt through Twitter, and in him I discovered a man who is passionate about the repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. His book, THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR, debuts today and I’m proud to host him on this auspicious day when the repeal of DADT officially goes into effect!
As a special bonus to one lucky reader, Kurt is giving away a signed copy of THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR. To enter the give away, simply leave a comment at the end of this post and your name will be entered in the drawing which will be held on September 27th, 2011. Good Luck!
WRITE TO PURGE
by Kurt Brindley
To me, writing is hard.
And it sometimes hurts.
And rarely does it ever come easy.
But still, I cannot stop myself from writing.
I’m not exactly sure why.
I am sure that I am not one of those writers who passionately declare such things like, “I write to live,” or, “If I didn’t write, I would die.”
While I understand the reason for these types of sentiments from those types of passionate writers, I hardly believe them to be completely sincere.
Well, based upon my own sentiments toward writing, I find them hard to believe, anyway
But who am I to judge, right?
Who am I?
Why I’m the one doing the writing, that’s who. And since I’m the one doing the writing (and since Alison so kindly (foolishly?) posted my writing on her blog), it means that I am also the one who gets to do the judging around here for now.
Yeah…(sinister laugh)…here comes the judge.
