I do believe you folks seem to be dancing "a little bit" around that age old question of "how many angels can stand on the head of pin". Magic, realism, magical realism, fantasy, fiction, non-fiction, drama, humor and many many more are all legitimate perspectives in literature. As for having a preference, well you and I as well as everyone else get to like what they like. :eek:

But that's just my opinion... and I am quite certain "the older I become, the more irrelevant I am." :bagoverhead:

Actually when I am out with my partner we often hear "what a cute couple". I take it to mean we are old. In reality she is the cute one at 5 feet tall and 100 lbs, dressed to perfection. Maybe I should write an article about getting old in a society that values youth.
(I threw that in to stay on topic. ;)

@richb I think everyone values being young. In my opinion,it's also fine being old; since, the option is being dead.

I just thought I'd through in a happy thought for 2019... :happybday:

Once or twice, a few years ago I did a lot of writing. Now with the passing years, progress in anything is much slower. Have loaded up to Dropbox a few factual
stories written over 20 years ago, memories of a couple of years spent on a remote and lightly volcanic Pacific Island weather station.

*whispers* I just sent the manuscript off to the publisher I have been in contact with. Wait and see if they'll accept it.
