One usually will read about the people that have been thanked for the influences,encouragements,assistance,and other support at the end of a novel, book or paper after it has been written and published. Here I am going to do it beforehand.
These special people have been continually there, in one capacity or another,some for quite a long time, while I dragged my feet waiting to finally offer up my thoughts and share my imagination to readers......or potential readers. I will call myself a story teller,but not yet a writer.
Belinda Nissen, my dear friend for 30 plus years,my brother Tom Caudle for his support, Carter Case for his constant encouragement, Dione Cota, David Cota, Don Elliott, Jena Nesbitt, and of course Scott Buntin of ASAP Mac & PC Services for his expert ideas and for building this site. Also to the many people, too many to name, who told me that I could be a writer. THANK YOU ALL!
I HOPE YOU ENJOY THESE OFFERINGS AS AND WHEN THEY APPEAR. WHEN THE WHITE RAVEN FLIES -IN CHAPTERS -WILL BE OFFERED WITH NO PARTICULAR TIMING. The important part for me,as a first time novelist with no formal training except some college courses several decades ago, is to take my time.....allow the story to evolve and this will allow it to be properly nurtured. Hopefully,you the reader, will have some positive thoughts or comments along this writing journey that I have finally chosen to travel. Anything that is offered,in whatever spirit it is presented,I will be the one richer for the fact that you have chosen to join my sojourn. I can only see that as my privilege.
RANDOM WHIMSEY WILL MANY TIMES OFFER HIS OPINIONS ...... NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE THINKS,AND AS OFTEN AS HE SEES FIT. AFTER ALL,EVERY DAY MUST CONTAIN SOME "RANDOM WHIMSEY" BEFORE IT ENDS!.
