Welcome to my Blog.
My name is Dennis Caristi, I’m a sixty-four year old aspiring author. I’ve written three books, one a Cookbook exclusively for my daughters Liz and Julia. It was and is a labor of love.
My first attempt at writing is an Adult Fiction Novella titled :”To Do the Right Thing” while it also is a labor of love I felt that it was much too autobiographical, didactic, pedagogic, pedantic, expository, homiletic, hortative, and donnish to ever find an agent let alone a publisher; this forced the third writing project, and I’m pleased to say a much more enjoyable novel to write, titled: “The Voyages of Achmid Huchmid and Folletti” another Adult Fiction of 93,782 words that I’m now fully committed to finding it a good publishing home for, to whit, this blog, Keepingthegoodsideout. Keepingthegoodsideout is a compilation of musings, articles and personal opinions that I write and post online for anyone to read and comment on, it functions as a tool that I use to keep my writing skills, such as they are, honed and sharp for the day when I can go to the sweet land of vindication and have one of my works published. Being a writer really means, that you write, just write because the act of writing makes you a writer.
