Meschery’s Musings on Sports, Literature and Life

Blogging might well be the 21st century’s form of journaling. As a writing teacher, I have always advised my students to keep a daily journal as a way of organizing their thoughts for future writing projects, a discipline I have unfortunately never consistently practiced myself. By blogging, I might finally be able to follow my own good advice.
The difference between journaling and blogging is that the blogger opens his or her writing to the public, something journal- writers are usually reluctant to do. I am not so reticent.
The trick for me will be to avoid cluttering the internet with more blather, something none of us need more of. If I stick to subjects I know: sports and literature, I believe I can avoid that pitfall. I can’t promise that I’ll not stray from time to time to comment on ancillary subjects, but I will make every attempt to be interesting and perhaps even insightful.

Interview With Author Tom Meschery

From: BookMarketingBuzzBlog 1) What motivated you to turn an idea/experience into fiction? There are people every yauthor knows, friends or acquaintances who are in real life possible "fictional characters." For me, writing fiction is all about characters. Once I turned my two college chums, twins, into fictional characters, I knew I could build a plot around them. Read the entire post.

Playoffs 2022 & etc  The playoffs are well under way and I'm behind writing about the games. I might have had something to say aboutr the TWolves surprisingly strong showing and not surprisingly final loss to the Griz. I might have said the TWolves need a smarter point guard who they don't need to score but can defend. I might have said that Parrick Beverley often looks as crazy as Wiley the Cayote as he mistakes leadership for physicality. (Is physicality a real word?). And physicality for brute force. That said, the TWolves would not have gotten as far as [...]

Individual Glory

Individual Glory  I'll begin with ETC: Should the Dodgers have pulled Clayton Kershaw out after 7 perfect innings? It's the beginning of the season, why not. How could it possibly affect the long term success of the Dodgers? Another two innings? Even if Kershaw was shelled in the next inning, the Dodgeres were up by 7. Personally, I can't see the scenario happening. I don't watch much baseball, but I just happened to watch that 7th inning performance. Kershsaw looked STRONG. so why the hell not give him a chance for individual glory? I get it that as the season [...]

The Women’s Game is Catching Up & etc

The Woman's Game is Catching Up & etc While we've been oh'ing and ah'ing over Saint Peters upsets, the Women's NCAA finals have been in progress and the games have been terrific. It hasn't been too long that you never saw women taking really jump  shots. Now, they're all elevating, proving that women can jump, white, black, brown or whatever skin color. Loved the Movie White Men Can't Jump, which is another racist myth. We don't need the women aribombing-dunks to enjoy their game, which is played at a high skill level and just as aggressive as the men. When the Final [...]
