Frequently Asked Questions

From time to time, I’ll post readers questions and my answers here.

If you would like to ask an anonymous question, please state that clearly in your message. 

  • Why is your blog called Fat Milton?

Fat Milton is a nickname of a guy I encountered in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, so many years ago. Apart from the first chapter, the events in this blog really have nothing to do with him, as a person. It also has no derogatory intent aimed at overweight people. It’s just a nickname, that’s all.

  • When will you publish your book?

Right now I am crowd-sourcing at Indiegogo for just that purpose. Writing this blog/book will take about 2 years so it is no small undertaking. If you can spare a few dollars, I would really appreciate it.

  • Why are you writing this blog, what is the real idea behind it?/ I don’t understand a lot of it.

This blog is my autobiography. I am not a professional writer and don’t have any plan of becoming one either, after the first/only book has been completed. That being said, my life has been filled with some pretty interesting adventures, misadventures and people from all walks of life. Not understanding it now is pretty natural. I hope it will become clearer for you in future. If it doesn’t, just send me another message and I’ll answer as well as I can.

  • What is your real name? (and many variations of the question)
