Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life

Half a mil

I logged into the website where I post the stories I write for Parentdish and was greeted with these statistics:

"You have written 500,212 words on 1,633 posts since you started publishing 2 years and 113 days ago"

I've written half a million words -- about five novels' worth. That's a lot of typing.

Journal Description

My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.
