Alright this may seem completely out-of-pocket for the rest of this blog site. Why have a category dedicated strictly to fictional stories on a beer blog? I agree it is off base. That does not mean don’t do it. So a little background on why this category exists. A few of the authors and hopefully more to come are gamer friends. I almost said old gamer friends, but I don’t want to label us all. I am old most days now. As gamer geeks we have had a writing group in the past to share our experiences and thoughts on characters/games we were playing. It allowed us to have a richer experience in the games. Don’t judge our geekiness.
So this is storytelling for the pure enjoyment of writing it and having others read it. We hope to get opinions on the stories and critiques that will help make them better reads. Don’t believe that this all has to do with past gaming efforts. This is for fictional writing and is there for any of the authors to tell a story that they desire.
We may eventually add sub-categories to this area or strip this category off to another blog site. That depends on the volume of posts and followers. Breaking it down into categories would be to help aid the blog’s readers in finding the stories they want to read. I could see a set of categories such as:
- Science Fiction (Not the same as Fantasy people)
- Crime Fiction
- Everyday Life Fiction/Short Story
I really am not sure where it will go. Will there be multiple chapters/continuing story lines? Will they all be short stories unrelated? That is all up to the authors and what mood they are in. We just hope that this site provides an outlet for the creative desire as it strikes the author.
So sit back, relax, read and have ABigBeer.
To steal from a popular book I read many decades ago this category is about Life, the Universe, and Everything or 42 for those in the know. So don’t be surprised if there is personal information relayed here or just general venting of frustrations about how the universe has treated one of the authors that day.
This is for those posts that come up because when the thought hits you and it just has to be shared with the world. Does it have a call to action? Does it leave the reader wondering what happened? Does it answer deep seated conundrums of the human psyche? I don’t know, maybe and maybe even more.
There may even be answers to the larger questions of the universe, Politics, Religion, & the Weather. We all know those are the most important things to us all. The posts are hoped to bring some clarity to Life, the Universe, and Everything and maybe even some smiles to your face.
So when you come home and the dog starts barking at you in your own home or the cats all want to be fed and you just don’t want to put up with them… Yeah, that happened today. No matter what your “cats & dogs” are then you can retreat here to listen to us wax poetically on similar feelings and do our own complaining. Join in to the conversation and let your voice be heard over the screams of the pressures in our lives.
When we finish here we will sit back, relax and have ABigBeer.

If you are seeing this you deal with Technology. I don’t think any of us are immune from technologies influence everyday of our lives. Following this blog’s definition of what technology is would mean no one on earth is immune to the it and hasn’t been since man started making tools. So what is the technology we mean in this blog? Everything is considered technology as far as this forum is concerned. So going from a stick used to help in planting seeds of the first farmers, or a stick to help in the hunting for food, up to the human colony on Mars… What you don’t know about that? More on that later I am sure. (Kidding)
Granted it will probably be more in-tune with computer technologies, but one of our authors might find an ancient Phoenician Battery of such interest to write a post on it. We are not limiting our interests to the technology that influences our lives in the modern world’s day-to-day living. So enjoy the information provided here. We hope that you find something of interest and benefit.
Sit Back, Relax, and have ABigBeer.
