Jim Murdoch's Page

I have published three novels to date, Living with the Truth, its sequel Stranger than Fiction and Milligan and Murphy which one of my beta readers described as my "love letter to Beckett." It's not but it is a postcard to Beckett.

The Whole Truth, an omnibus edition of the first two novels, is also available but only as an e-book.

I have also published a collection of poetry: This Is Not About What You Think.

You can find out more about them on my website here.

Hi Jim and thanks for taking the time to visit irregular therapy! Just a couple of comments on what you wrote: in my experience, I have seen that what works for one may or may not suit another. You'll only know if you give it a try. In my opinion, techniques, diets, guidelines, etc are all a question of belief. They work for you if you believe in them. In fact, I believe our entire individual world is built on belief, and that makes each one's world unique. But at the same time, we share the same world of phenomena, right?

 

Furthermore, most people will follow established rules and guidelines mostly because it is easier to do so. It is nice to rebel against rules, but I believe it is even nicer to simply outgrow these feelings in such a way that I can follow the rules or not and it won't make a difference because it does not bother me! But all of this is my opinion, of course...

 

If you wish to write more, please feel free to do so!

Thanks for the comment, Jill-Elizabeth. I'm still taking it all in. When I joined it was simply so I could post a comment on a blog. I had no idea this was all here. I'm trying to build my readership and so I'm hoping there are a whole whean of sites out there I can connect with.

Welcome to Book Blogs!  I'm rather new myself - still figuring things out, but so far have been quite pleased with how much support/feedback/help are available...  If there's anything I can help with just let me know - I can't promise answers (well, I can technically promise answers, just not that they are correct/useful - teehee), but I've managed to pick up a trick or two that I'm happy to share!

And if you have a second, please stop by my blog - www.Jill-Elizabeth.com - I'm always happy to get comments or new followers!

Best of luck to you -
