I’m such a techno klutz that I’ve only just realised that this page existed and was entirely blank.

It’s supposed to be about me, so that’s probably why it was blank, I suppose.

No, I didn’t mean it like that. I do have a personality, just I’m really a very private person. You want to find out any more about me, you are in the wrong place. You need to come down the pub, or meet me in the local music venues, or out on the top of the hills around here. (Insert cheesy line about the free wind blowing in your hair here if you really must, but don’t expect me to be pleased about it if you do, all right?)

If you are so sad as to be desperate, go to my website where, frankly, there isn’t much more about me but a lot more about the various books I’ve written, am in the middle of writing, and intend to get around to writing. if you are interested.

    Sorry that I missed your comment, was desperately scrambling to get out of gunshot range, as Jim suggested. I take your advice to heart. ~GCleare

    • I was new to this a couple of months ago too. But some more exoerienced guys told me what I passed to you – the best thing to do is maintain a dignified ( or delighted) silence. Amazon is littered with trolls who want nothing more than an excuse to rip into someone. Give them no excuse to pick on you
      I can see that you kust wanted to be super honest, but believe me Gail, it isn’t worth it.

  2. Will, just to let you know I took the liberty of tagging you for the Blog Hop “The Next Big Thing” (referring, of course, to whatever you are writing at the moment). I’ll be sending all my readers to you next Wednesday to check it out.

  3. Hi Will,

    Nice blog, how would you like to see a blog set up to promote New (to me) Authors and their books?

    Call over and have a look at mine and if you like it enough, I’d be delighted if you became a follower 🙂

  4. Will, you are one of the most interesting authors I know! One of these days, if I get across the pond, I’m going to meet you in that pub just to see what goes on in a pub. I’ve heard about them and read about them all my life. Never been inside one! lol

  5. Lalo, going down the pub is a seriously great experience. It’s sad you’ve missed out!

  6. Hey Will! I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award! 🙂 Details can be found here:

    I apologise if you’ve already been nominated, or if you don’t qualify because you have more than 200 followers 🙂

  7. I have yet to finish setting up WordPress (also a techno klutz). I came across your post from The Story Reading Ape’s blog, and am intrigued about writing Flash Fiction to help improve my writing skills. Thank you for that informative post. Kathleen, Sarasota, Florida

    • Hi Kathleen.

      Flash fiction is a great tool for teaching yourself about sentence structure. Further, as a way of stimulating the imagination, it is unparallelled. When people ask me about writers block, I suggest writing a different piece of Flash everyday for two weeks. That’s 14 stories to make up. Imagination is a muscle (even though a doctor friend of mine goes berserk when I say this) and the more you make yours work, the better it will get. Go for it. And remember that every new story has potential to be developed. Once, on one writers’ chat site, there was a proposal amongst some of us to write horror stories with EXACTLY 416 words (don’t ask why). You will find a whole book full of them on Smashwords, called Fright Four sixteen. Lots of us had fun, and learnt a lot.
