I have this site for one purpose: I love to write. I am not out to impress anyone except myself with what I post here. I hope you enjoy it as well, but everyone has differing tastes, so if you do not like it, that is fine. Here is what you will find on Burton’s World: my observations and commentary about anything that I find interesting; short pieces of fiction, 1,000 words or less generally; longer, serialized pieces of fiction (short story or book length, in chapters); a section chronicling my travels to find and photograph covered bridges with my older brother George (however, please be aware that I have taken great literary license in the narratives of these stories; yet, the bridges in fact are places we visited, as are some of the characters); poetry; Bible commentary or devotions; and a section whose contributors are my middle school students that I teach, usually something outstanding one of them has produced.
Mainly I will be posting short fiction and poetry on this blog.
The Covered Bridge Chronicles will only be updated when I feel specially creative to record another one of those stories, meaning there may not be any more of those stories. They will remain on the blog, though. I wrote those a number of years ago. If you only read one of them, read the one titled Bass Roulette.
Please enjoy. If you do not enjoy, thank you for visiting anyway.
You write beautifully. I will so enjoy keeping up with your posts. I just read your Burton’s World and found it very interesting or your interests and your life.
Keep up with the blog, I will stay tuned.
