Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. How are you all doing? I'm managing to type with two hands, although still in some pain with my shoulder. I did get my pain-killing injection though! Did it go without a hitch? No! If I wasn't such a materialist determinist, I'd swear fate was trying to … Continue reading Part 47: Opinion ≠ Experience

Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. I hope you're all well. This week's blog is going to a shorter than normal (stop cheering, you at the back). The reason for this brevity is I'm struggling to type, due to the horrendous pain in my right shoulder, which has partially immobilised my arm. At … Continue reading Part 45: All Mouth

If you've followed the blog for … Continue reading Part 43: A Vision of Pride
Hello and welcome back to the Autistic Writer. I've got a treat for you this time! The emotional eruption that constitutes this week's edition is my love letter to the man, the legend, the force of nature, the unintentionally hilarious and obliviously sickening entity that is William "Bill" Shatner! But before I pull you into … Continue reading Part 42: For the Love of Bill

Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. I don't want to sound too British, but how ridiculous has the weather been? Waterproof parka one day, shirtsleeves the next. *Puzzled shrug* On the subject of clothing, I had something pleasant happen this week. You might remember I've talked a bit recently about how I've enjoyed … Continue reading Part 40: Surviving the Hall of Mirrors
Hello, and welcome back to The Autistic Writer. I've had a pretty good week, mainly. Yeah, it’s had a few ups and downs, but overall I'm okay with things.
