The Bruce Bits, etc...

I am currently trawling through my old blog (again), as well is this one, looking for bits and pieces I can cobble together - not necessarily into anything coherent or internally consistent - something about Bruce, and/or taxis, and/or the Mouse, and/or Kopi, and/or hotel breakfasts and toast...


There are maybe 700 posts and perhaps 250,000 words over there place (approaching 2 milllion hits btw) and with the 740 post here, god knows how many words.

There must be something I can do with it all (as people have been saying for years) rather burn my few remaining hours over something new that is not taking the shape I want it to.

I will need to redo a great deal of the earlier risqué E@L stuff retrospectively as Bruce stories, to give a semblance of character continuity.

Plot? Don't make me laugh.

Watch this space. (If I don't run out of steam...)


Do you think I should I should charge you guys for the effort I am taking to do this, as Dick Headley does, or let it run free amongst the wolves on the internet marketplace, as Mercer Machine does?

Up to you, my friend, but bear in mind my stuff is free range not because I love to give so much as I see the need to get noticed, and that's the quickest path. If you are looking at a single magnum opus, you'll benefit from a revised strategy in my opinion.

I've always been a bit of a "if it's on the Intrawebs, then even if it's not free, there are enough script kiddies and such out there to ensure that I make nothing on it anyway"

Besides, as soon as you start charging, you set a contract relationship up with your readers and then you will feel a constant pressure to deliver more.

Pull stories together by all means, package them and then sell them in a book or eBook form - but as a separate excerise.
