A message from the editor and author, Ford –
Welcome, atomic mates, to The Atomic Mage – my brand new blog focussing on poetry, fiction, art, books, retro publications and more!
What do I write? I write poetry, novels, short stories, micro fiction and articles on pop culture.
What do I write about? I write about heroes and villains, the underdog, tragedy, ghosts, the unexplained, angels and fairies, crooked politicians and brothers and sisters working it out.
Why do I write? Because I listen and observe, because I am a dreamer, because I am passionate, because I have thousands of voices beseeching me to give them page-time, because I am romantic, because adventure and the unknown seize me by the lapels and scream in my face, because I would go mad if I didn’t write.
Have you been published? Yes. But always remember to write for yourself first, if someone else loves it enough to print it then good for you; a writer must always emerge from their own dreams and wishes of the heart and mind before anything else.
Do you do other stuff? Mixed media art, drums and percussion, health care worker, 20th century print advert archiving…
My previous blog of more than ten years standing is The Vintage Toy Advertiser which has entered a period of hiatus, so if you know me from TVTA then feel free to join me at my newest venture here.
