My inaugural post as a ‘writer’ for The Millionaire’s Digest. For my part it is a revisit to a quote challenge from some months ago first thrown up on my own blog fiction is food. Strange name maybe, but one tries to feast on fiction and, in my own particular idiom, scribble scribblings to toss into the world because, well, I can….as usual, I digress.
