About Andrew Shattuck McBride
I am a writer, editor, writing coach, and consultant. I work in a variety of genres, including poetry, short stories, and creative non-fiction. I also have a couple of novels simmering on back burners. THANK YOU to Nan Macy of Village Books for taking this photo (June 2011).
You have a lovely head of hair!!
You are too kind. Oh, wait – you’re a fiction writer!
Perhaps from the front, but NOT from the back!
Are YOU writing?
Press on with your writing!
Just because I write fiction doesn’t mean I ‘speak’ it! You’ll know when I’m writing fiction — it’ll be in New Times Roman, double spaced, paginated, and there will be a ‘by,’ before my name rather than ‘write on’ — plus I’d ask your opinion on it. 🙂
Would that be Times Roman 12?
You made me smile again. Definitely silly man.
by (oh, wait – I mean) Press on with your writing! Andy
