Hey, welcome to my new blog. My name is Ken David Stewart. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I decided to return to blogging after leaving the blogosphere for a few months. After a time of discouragement with my past results with both blogging and creative writing, I now have the desire to get back in the saddle. I guess I missed the writing process more than I thought.
Over the years I have authored, and self published three books on amazon.ca and amazon.com. None of my books made me rich and famous, but I enjoyed writing them. It was fun.
I am 67 years old and live with my wife, two dogs and a cat. I love animals; all animals.
I am a semi -retired teacher who now works as a substitute teacher. I have a wide variety of interests. This becomes obvious when you’ve read some of my fiction writing blog posts.
Unfortunately, I suffer from a chronic and persistent affective disorder that for periods of time, puts me on the sidelines of life. Fortunately, I also have periods of mood stability that allow me to be surprisingly productive. For about a decade I was employed as a mental health worker. Consequently, I know more about mental health than the average person. My experiences as a life skills worker has provides me with a unique base of knowledge that shows up in my writings.
Along with mental health, my other interests include watching NFL football, professional wrestling, practising my bass guitar, blogging and fiction writing and watching videos with my wife. I work out at the gym when my arthritis and fibromyalgia pain is only of moderate severity.
In this new blog my subject matter may include excerpts from my fiction writing, current affairs issues, excerpts from my personal journal, and reviews of music, videos, books and audiobooks. I hope you enjoy my blog.
