The writer

Dateline: Tue 03 Dec 2013

It's always with great pleasure to hear that Abe Aamidor, formerly a features reporter at the Indianapolis News and later the Indianapolis Star, continues to carve out success as an author of fiction.

Here's the newest blurb:

"Abe Aamidor's latest short story, a modern retelling of Hermann Hesse's "Siddhartha," has been accepted for publication in 2014 in The Gettysburg Review. This will be Aamidor's second appearance in the journal, and it is his tenth example of short fiction  published in 2012 and 2013 and/or accepted for publication in 2014."

It includes pracitcal info and great quotes. "There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein" - said Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith, a sportswriter. 

Really, I thought EVERYONE said that.

Continued best wishes to Abe Aamidor.

 

NOTE: This post has been corrected. The quote about writing is from Red Smith, not Red Barber.

"My bad" on the Red Smith quote, which I mistakenly attributed to Red Barber. Kudos to Geoff Ooley for catching the mistake - uh, every writer needs a copy editor! This is the full, correct quote in question: "There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein" - Red Smith

Abe was on Only a Game on NPR a few weeks ago, talking about Chuck Taylors with Bill Littlefield.
