Welcome to the Johncurzonauthor profile page. Though you find yourself here you can at least console yourself with the thought that having sunk this low, you can't fall any further. When it comes to personal questions, the quote from The Prisoner (the proper 1967 original rather than the risible 2009 remake) sums my attitude up nicely. "Questions are a burden upon others; answers a prison for oneself." If you choose to follow me then don't expect too much in return. It's not that I'm antisocial; or don't want to follow you, read your books, or critique your writing, but my severely impaired vision will only allow me to do so much: That, and I'm trying to get some writing done; which isn't easy as you may imagine. I hope you understand; too bad if you don't. However I will follow people whose works or profile interest me. Having been abandoned by the education system as 'remedial' due to my disability I mostly taught myself to read and write, as well as self-educating. Unfortunately sometimes it shows in my work. I strive to do my best but, as happens to everyone, I often fall short. I post completed works rather than regular installments as I am a slow writer, and you probably spend enough of your time waiting around already. If you choose to read my works I hope you find the experience worthwhile. Thank you for your interest.
