‘Mine your own material’

If I remember right, this was one of the prompts in Writing 101. Or perhaps it was old material? It got me thinking, though I did not post anything at the time. And I have begun the process, instead of constantly writing something new. I have thousands, hundreds of thousands of pages, unread by anyone. Some are ready stories, some are articles, some need a lot of work, but have considerable potential.

As a first step, I located, typed and uploaded on kindle, four, and later, six stories. Not many sales, and not many have read them, but then they were lying unread for so many years! And whoever has read them, has liked them–one story, two people independently compared to the work of Borges!

And I’ll be continuing the process–of putting my papers in order, uploading what is readable.
