The Diary of a Nice Man By Lothar Patten
eBook (PDF): $3.95
Lothar Patten was a much loved figure in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. In the last years of his life, he transformed from a homeless man living at the Crossroads shelter into a well-loved man about... More > town, and even a movie star. Lothar met most of the 2004 presidential election candidates and more, including Ted Danson, James Carville, and George Stephanopoulos. Lothar died in 2008 but the love he brought to Portsmouth, New Hampshire in his everyday travels is shown as he slowly rises to a low-level but international fame. Lothar's diary has been on one computer or another for the last few years. Today is the day I show it to the world. Lothar's writing style would probably be considered "outsider". Yet he made the typewriter he received from Operation Blessing his own voice. What you will read is a daily gratitude for life, and a series of small triumphs and happinesses. If you would like to read something happy for a change, look no more.< Less

A huddle of journalists was busily hammering at their typewriters the morning Irvine Hunt joined the Accrington Observer as a cub reporter in the heart of industrial Lancashire. A crumpled wire... More > waste paper basket awaited on one side of his desk and a potted lanky geranium on the other. Two exciting years followed. Its half-a-dozen reporters covered everything from gruesome inquests to numbing blizzards, from Ladies' Bright Hours to a store ablaze in the heart of the little Lancashire town. And there were the happy surprises. The contacts, the musician friends, two of whom became world famous. And the 30-shilling-a-week girl reporter who applied for an Observer job when still in her gymslip, who couldn't spell, but who went on to become a successful publisher. Cub Reporter embraces a much-liked family newspaper, in which every name in print was expected to sell a copy, an era familiar to every reporter who ever compiled funeral lists of floral tributes in the days of hot type.< Less

I thought then about what two of the writers I have read said about their writing methods. One of them, Rod McKuen, said that he tried to write a poem every day. The other one, Isaac Asimov, said... More > that he would lock himself in a room with a typewriter for 8 hours a day. This made me think that I set aside time where I had nothing to do but write when I might write more poems. So I start on my breaks and lunches at work to take a pen and notebook and try to write something. Doing this is how this book was written. Now as before; ‘Now I do try to write "good" poetry that people will enjoy reading, but I don't try to write poems for people to read.’ I will say about my writing method that I try to write in a way that isn’t dependent on the language they are written in. So I do not use rhyme and meter which will be lost if the poems are translated in to another language.< Less
