Chuck Hinman: IJMA. It's Just Me: My Book
Chuck Hinman: It's Just Me: My Book. 5 May 2005 WITH notes by RHS Chuck tells the story of how his book of stories got published.
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - The Counterpane
By Chuck Hinman
It's Just Me: My Book
This is the introduction to my book entitled It's Just Me. I will probably have the initial product -- around 175 pages -- from the typesetter Joy Garland while I am recovering from cataract surgery tomorrow. Then later to a local printer and voila there it is! That may be some time away.
Everybody can write a book if I can. You are my special encouragers. How can I say thanks and most would say, what's wrong with just 'thank you.' OK -- 'thank you.' I hope you can feel the emotion that accompanies those two words!
Incidentally, the first writing is entitled 'Hogshooter U.S.A.' and is the letter that was given to each of several hundred cyclists as they stopped at our rural church for a rest stop a few years back. That is my earliest effort at writing and enjoys a special place in the book. Thanks, Brother Tom for asking me to do it! You didn't know what you started!
Love you all,
HOW IT ALL BEGANNote from Robert Stone:
I have never seen the book It's Just Me. I first received the stories as emails from Chuck. After his death, Alsie Mae Stapleton sent me stories. She has keep a copy of everything Chuck ever sent her.Written by Chuck Hinman. Emailed 5 May 2005.
