Writer's Block: Everyday I write the book

If you were to write your autobiography, what would be the title?

I'm kinda partial to "Slightly Off the Mark" ... although I was considering compiling my columns into a book someday, so I suppose that title would fit best there.

What a chore that would be, picking through almost 20 years of columns to find the good ones  -- that's over 50,000 words a year!

In that case, the title of my autobiography would be either "Why would you want to read this?" or, "It's just me".

I think I like "Mustache Memories".

Since you've written so much, maybe it would be a book series, rather than just one book. ^_^

We'd have to see how popular the first book was, before worrying about a sequel! But the other thing is that some of my columns were real stinkers, for one reason or another -- I'd just as soon forget those ever existed.

Slightly Off the Mark
It's been me for two decades, now!

The title actually came from a coworker at the Albion New Era, back when I first started the column and we were searching for a name. They were working on a sports article about bowling, and the writer in that had mentioned that a bowler was "slightly off the mark" -- it was perfect.
