Story Shucker

The Blogger, Stuart M. Perkins is originally from Richmond, Virginia. He enjoys describing his true observations of daily life and recollections of growing up in a large family surrounded by cousins, animals, and more animals. Everyday experiences often carry great messages. Layers of ordinary reality can usually be peeled back to reveal the genuinely humorous or poignant themes buried within common events.

Daily life is full of “mini-scenarios”, each hiding an interesting story. Peeling back, or shucking the mundane facts from the situation to reveal the entertaining story beneath is what Stuart enjoys most. Shucking the story from the facts. Storyshucker. Stuart currently lives in Arlington, Virginia.

He does interesting, short reading, articles.

Ruminations of a Remembrancer

This is my principal blog.  It covers several topics besides promoting my own self-published books.  I review books; discuss grammar and poetry; occasionally wax nostalgic, indulge in philosophical speculation, or vent on social issues; and post excerpts from my books, both published and WIPs.

The Attic Girls

Subtitled “Adventures and Misadventures of a Writers’ Critique Group…” this blog features a small group of published and aspiring writers who blog about everything and anything related to writing and publishing though their experiences. An eclectic mix of writers means a variety of interesting essays, and these women deliver straight from the heart. This is a newish blog, with each writer contributing once each month (so a new post each week). Consider starting with Jade Kerrion – Attic Girls’ First Date, and I think you’ll be hooked–I was!

About Steve

An author since the age of 13 years, writing again dominates my activities. My "Imagineer-ing" blog is my primary site. Also: Beginner knitter since November 2010. Favourite knitting techniques: cable and lace. Beginner cross stitcher. Beginner jewellery maker. With the promotion of self publication and all the other work that has been going on here, Dad decided around 2am this morning (22/11/2013) that it was time to begin his next adventure. He was seen off earlier the previous evening by myself, my brother, my sister in law, and my sister, as well as his wife (our mum), and an enigmatic being known only as A Lorraine. After this time of story telling, laughing, crying, joking and mickey taking, we saw how tired both mum and dad were, and we decided to leave them under the (sometimes) gentle care of The Lorraine. When Dad found the timetable for his travels, he let Mum know gently, which woke her from her drowsing, then, with the same gentleness he showed in this universe, he boarded his favourite mode of transport, the Interdimensional Steam Train, and set off with a smile and a wave. For those of us closest, that smile was a reminder that his pain has ended, and the wave, an indicator that he will pop in to all those that knew him, from time to time. Usually at the most inconvenient and in opportune moments he can. While we are sad that he is no longer here, we are happy he now has no pain, and is experiencing more extraordinary things that his writers mind will be frantically weaving into a new story.
