About Ernest Winchester


I must in all honesty, update this entry, for I stumbled onto the magic key to post a story on Smashwords. It was operator error not one of the poltergeist that I’m sure came preloaded in my computer that prevents me from getting what I want from it. For those of you who didn’t read this bio before—which I’m sure includes the rest of the world’s population—I repeat: I am an old man who loves to write. I started decades ago—the exact number is irrelevant—on a cast iron framed manual typewriter that would now serve little purpose beyond a boat anchor. I love composing fiction on the computer, mainly because of the spell check feature. Why someone who can’t spell worth a damn wants to write, I’ll never be able to explain. I take solace in the knowledge that some well-known writers throughout history were so afflicted. However, I must confess, that is about as far as I can go into this—to me—frightening world of cyberspace. I don’t have accounts on face book (wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole. Almost nightly the news is filled with stories of people murdered by people they have contacted there.) I feel the same way about Myspace, a blog or personal web site. I don’t tweet or twit or what ever that is. That really seems silly--just call them and talk! So I’ll be contented to write and enjoy retirement until the final heartbeat or wayward city buss runs me over.

I almost laughed out loud when I got to the bra removal article advice that stated if you still can't remove it after an hour, you might want to check and see if the clasp is in the front. This author has a very humorous voice in everything he writes. Don't miss his Stacy and Harold stories!

Ernest, Enjoyed your short diversion (I suspect the diversion lasted longer than it took to write about it). Looking forward to finding out what happens with Harold & Stacy. Must confess I like dirty little stories too, thank goodness for the anonymity of the internet. (Had to do my own internet interruption to look up the spelling of that.)

Glad to see you're back to health. I always check to see if you are one of the reviewers on the rated stories. You hardly ever steer me wrong. Keep writing.
