New England Man

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
That most meddling crier arrives to town / His coming confirmed by collective frown / In coat of softest down quite snug / Clothed in canny learning likewise smug / He’s come to town a truth to tell / In hand that known and wicked bell / Whose honest tones cast dreadful spell / Ring of futures foul, forecasts fell More

About Sean Sullivan

My writing is so much like the things I craft from reclaimed wood - begun with passion and purpose, sorely short on planning.

The three legs of wordcraft being preparation, inspiration and perspiration, I never fail to make do balancing and wobbling on just the latter two.

I just can't resist the urge to plunge my hands right into things, start shaping parts of the whole and fitting them together.

I grant mine are stories made from old wood - scraps and bits that have seen the world, overused and weathered, salvaged and repurposed.

Yet somehow in spite of all that, I find my mode of word and woodcraft work well. For when I’ve hidden all the mistakes I can find, sanded out the rough parts and those apt to leave splinters, I hold something that has character, feels comfortable and fits in.

"Is it an antique? Authentic?” some might ask."Or a reproduction perhaps?” A bit of both, I'd have to say. I hope you enjoy reading!

Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very delightful, fun loving personal home town state well written rhyming type poem (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios. I loved New England when I lived back East. A very easy rating of 5 stars for this short poem (book).
Thank you for the free short story (book)

I enjoyed reading this! It has a smooth flow and paints a nice picture. It brings to mind a combo of Robert Frost and Charles Dickens. Keep up the good work!
