Haven’t yet found the long article/booklet I wrote about SA’s issues/problems (immense) facing the country in 1994/95 (at the time of the transition to a “free and democratic” country), many of which are still there *… and perhaps even greater in 2019.

eg. the “biggie:land redistribution question

I want to write stories that matter a lot to me, in terms of my deepest values. True stories from people’s lives in history, that are worth sharing with others. Inspirational stories of ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times, that hopefully uplift and impact others through certain people’s great generosity of spirit inherant in the human condition to overcome great obstacles in their lives! So, in short, my stories are about…

“Craig, you are so impatient. ‘Real/proper’# writers develop structure carefully: the characters, plot and the story-line evolve slowly over time. They research the topic for years (like you and your life-long obsession with motor racing and sport), whereas you don’t bother much about all those “real/serious writer things” and do everything in a rush to get your writings ‘out there asap’ to impact people. You just write (and share) what’s sitting in your head!”
