Danny and the Viking Funeral

I’m not too happy with humans at the moment, but I’ll say hello anyway. My name is Danny. To my legions of fans I’m known as Danny the Dog.

Today I want to talk about my human, his name is Andrew and he is a real idiot! Andrew wants a Viking funeral. Do you know what a Viking funeral consists of? I didn’t think so, and neither did I until Andrew opened his big yap!

When a Viking died, they put him o Read more of this blog post »

“Read, read . . . and then read some more. Read everything you can get your hands on! Reading to a writer is as medical school is to a doctor, as physical training is to an athlete, as breathing is to life.”
Andrew Joyce

“She pondered on how she had come to be as that particular place, at that particular moment, at that specific time in her life. Why, at fifty-three years old, was she lying on the hard ground, about to have a shootout with a murderer?”
Andrew Joyce, Resolution: Huck Finn's Greatest Adventure

“Honorable men do not steal young girls away from their home no matter how much thy want to be stolen.”
Andrew Joyce, Resolution: Huck Finn's Greatest Adventure

“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
William Faulkner

“Read, read . . . and then read some more. Read everything you can get your hands on! Reading to a writer is as medical school is to a doctor, as physical training is to an athlete, as breathing is to life.”
