sunday - adventrue continues

So my mission to go to my Granddad's and nick his back catalogue of "El Frienderino" failed misserably as the usual visit to my granddad's transmorphed quite viscerrally into a barbeque at my uncles... so it goes. On the plus side I got to dump tackle some of my cousins... so you know that particular lining was fairly silver if not eventually blood splattered...

Online reading has continued... "El frienderino del la peoples" has both short fiction contained on a page of about a 1.000 words, 4 page spread of a about 4,000 words and serials which are eaten by the elderly at breakfast.

Fuck you and your derisive groan. It is late. humid as buggery in a greenhouse while ten thousand kettles perpetually boil and I've been drinking. be thankful that I can still type.

...but also they have a kids story section.. which the stories run at 500 - 800 words, and they accept stories of the rhyming vernacular (see this... ignore typos. Also, mine are the two under the name of arrangedletters) which is going to my first aim to get a foot in the door so to speak.. I would of said to get a foot in "the friend" but that just sounds coarse.

My idea as it stands so far is a nice little rhyming couplet jobby about Curiosity getting put on trial for murdering the cat. which will act as a parable of some form of how children should be encouraged to be curious to try and gain understanding of things they don't know etc... so dunno how that will go..

still need to get some magazines though so I can mock them on here and take the piss/do an analysis of running themes through the stories and such.

that'll do for now.

speak to you in a few days no doubt.
