Description
This is a collection of my first year's blog Writing Rite, which features my writing. However, it is divided into four sections: Essays, Poetry, Short Stories, and Novel. Within each section, the items are aligned by publication date on the blog. Most of the short items have added background and/or explanatory notes. Most of the poems and short stories have been previously published; if so, I have included that information. Most of the essays have not. Some of those were written into the blog. The novel is a Buck Jaspers Mystery: Book Three: Encomienda. It has been serialized by chapter for publication in the blog. I have revised many of the items before republishing them on the blog.
