Back before New Year’s, I did a blogging game, where I asked you to think of fictional characters and post them in the comments, starting with A, all the way to Z. We made it all the way to the end, eventually, thanks to one loyal fan, and I said that whoever got one for F, S, and Z would get featured in a future post. This one.
Winner 1: Miles Rost (Music and Fiction)
As the blog name suggests, Miles writes fiction, inspired by music. Each story has a corresponding song and he often uses some of the lyrics in the story.
Demolition Man is a madcap piece about a group of military misfits.
Hazy Shade of Winter is just fun, with lots of energy in it.
Winner 2: Sharmishtha Basu (Window to my Soul, Wing of Dreams, among others)
Sharmishtha has been blogging a lot longer than me and has 12 blogs, dealing with stories, poems, social issues and interesting facts. If you don’t know about Sharmishtha’s work yet, go check it out.
Honeytrap: A Novel: This, along with its sequel, Kingmaker, are a chilling look into the plight of young Indian women and the depravity of some people who exploit them.
The Other World: Sharmishtha writes compelling serial stories. This is her current one.
Since I’m writing this post anyway, I thought I would mention a couple other blogs as well. One is Dysfunctional Literacy. If you have never read Dysfunctional Literacy, definitely go check it out. Author Jimmy Norman writes about funny, interesting posts about literature, books, words, etc. and has great continuing stories. His current one, The Literary Girlfriend is top-notch.
The other blog I wanted to mention is called Two Small Feet and its first post was yesterday. It is owned by a real-life friend of mine, Carmelita, a world traveler who just arrived in Bhutan to live there. Go follow her and read about her adventures and life in a remote, mysterious country.

Bhutan is an amazing country! I am jealous of your friend. 🙂
I have seen a lot of photographs, read articles on it, it is a lovely country for sure, full of peace and culturual treasure.
Thanks for the honour David, your friendship is something i cherish from the core of my heart. Apart from that, any word of compliment from an amazing writer like you sure makes my day (if not the whole year) 🙂
have a wonderful time!

I’d love to go visit her there sometime. Of course, I’d love to visit India too, although it won’t be for a while.
And I’m happy to share your great work with everyone I know. 🙂

I was hiking in the mountains by myself. The only reason I posted this one was that I scheduled it. But I’m back now. 🙂
