Applause, Applause!

cj Sez: Congratulations to Mobile author/artist Steven Moore…The Gulf Coast CW named him Super Fan of the Month and then invited him to create their Super Fan logo.

   Moore has posted several essays on the Gulf Coast CW Super Fan site about his artistic journey that carried him from pen and paint to prose. His most recent post lauds his membership in the Mobile Writers Guild, whose members encouraged his writing and voila! He became a published author. (That ‘voila’ was a hard-won victory—the result of his serious dedication to learning the craft.)

  Moore created the covers for all three Mobile Writers Guild anthologies and is working on the fourth, scheduled for publication later this year.

  Enjoy reading about his artistic journey at these url addresses:

More Applause

Public Service Announcement

   According to an Associated Press article, “Alabama is in danger of losing at least one congressional seat based on its current response rate to the U.S. Census, officials said Tuesday.”

   “Some $13 billion in annual federal funding for programs including school nutrition, health care, infrastructure and housing also is at stake with the Census, which occurs every 10 years..”

cj Sez: Every state needs proper and adequate representation in Washington, D.C. If you haven’t yet responded to the 2020 Census, “Now is the time for all good citizens to come to the aid of their country.” (Anyone remember that last sentence as a variation of a typing class drill?)


    Over the past few weeks, I've been self quarantining after my son tested positive for the coronavirus. Fortunately, I tested negative. His symptoms were mild, thank the Lord. We are now both negative and have resumed our "safer-at-home" limited excursions out. You'd think with all that time at home, my house and yard would be nigh unto perfectly neat. You'd be wrong. I was crashing on the short story and managed to get it done and submitted on Friday.  Next comes the house.

 That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. (Sending up prayers for your health and safety.)
