Thinking About Guests

Thinking About Ideas

Yesterday a friend suggested that I should perhaps make a book comprised of haiku and my photographs. I’ve actually thought of this before, but I didn’t think it had any merit.

What are your thoughts on this, audience? Do you think it would be a successful venture?

I daresay I am not really strapped for ideas in terms of writing haiku, so I could always match the haiku to the picture, or just have the pictures there as something nice to look at.

Of course, in the end, this is all just an exercise in holding my breath. I don’t really have any contacts in the publishing industry.

So, throw me some ideas, folks. Let me know what you think!



Guest Fig-tionary Writer

Due to the ridiculous number of Hai-Kuul requests, I have decided to dole out some writing responsibility to someone who I trust immensely with my life, and blog (of course). Allow me to introduce (again) Dave!

You probably remember him from such stories as Zip and Tuck, and the ever-popular Rafting Adventure.

Dave has immensely awesome writing skills.

He will do us proud here at Barking Space.
