Friday Feature - Diary of an Old Fart

Today's featured blog is "Diary of an Old Fart." When I first began reading it, I thought it was a real diary. After a while, I realized it was fiction.

The characters are well-drawn, and the author does a lot with just a few words. He captures a lot about personality, attitudes, and relationships with just a few lines of dialogue.

After the main story (set forth in Days 1 - 88) was completed, the author moved on to writing "preludes" and "epilogues."

So head over and start with Day 1, work your way through all the days, then go to the preludes and epilogues. If you can restrain yourself, it would be fun to read one day at a time (as I did when I started and he was posting only a day at a time of the diary, making it seem like the story was happening in "real time"). But you probably will find yourself hooked and unable to avoid reading all the days at once.... Good luck with that.

Happy reading, Friday feature finders, happy reading!

Thank you for the mention, and for following Aaron's days so faithfully. Often your comments meant the difference between carrying on or not.
