About Trent

Now who is this Trent P. McDonald guy?Trent

If “Computer Nerd” is a real occupation then we must consider Trent’s “day job” as just that.  His official title is currently “Systems Administrator” but he has worked in various aspects of computer science and IT over the years, including programing, web page design, support, mail administrator, networking, etc., etc.

When he’s not plugging away at computers Trent spends his time enjoying and participating in the arts.  Music is in many ways the love of Trent’s life.  He plays the trumpet and keyboards, composing much of his own music.  The visual arts are also import to him.  He draws, paints and is an avid photographer.  Music might be the love of Trent’s life but writing has been the core: living = thinking = writing.  Trent has spent a good deal of time and energy getting his words down on paper, or the electrons on the screen.

Originally from Ohio Trent lives in New Hampshire, although Massachusetts has become something of a second home.  To be more specific, a small house near the shore of Swan Pond in Dennisport, MA.  He enjoys many outdoor activities, particularly kayaking, hiking, bicycling and skiing.

Always remember that Trent, who likes to refer to himself in the third person when writing bio-sketches, often pretends to have a sense of humor…

      Glad to meet you : ) I know you’ve written some books of short stories but I’m not sure if I know exactly what a “content writer” is. Is it like a “copy” writer in marketing and advertising?

    …”often pretends to have a sense of humor”…LOL!!
    I soo love you, ol’ pal!!
    Writing is good for the soul.
    And also, I’ve found, for the “sole”, since I usually go for a walk while contemplating the next bit o’ brilliance–or other questionable substance–that will leak from my pen

      Hi T, or is that High Tea? Thanks for stopping by. Actually, I’ve written a few posts about my creative process and walking. It seems moving my legs turns my brain on. You should start a blog to share those “bit(s) ‘o brilliance”.

      Hope you and Rainy are staying warm!

    Hello fellow Trent! I recently hosted my own domain name at blogemala.com (I’ll still be posting links to guategrits.wordpress.com but it will direct people to blogEmala.com).
    I have a little link section and I wanted to include your blog! I post the link to your page, then a little description. So I was thinking of using this:

    “A blog about the love of music, art, poems, and short stories from a fellow who shares the same great name!”

    Let me know what you think, or if you want to type out your own description.

    Have a great day!

      Hi Trent. Thanks of thinking of me! link away. The little blurb you have works. I don’t have a problem you keeping it in your words. If you want to use mine, just grab the little blub I have in my upper right corner.

    Hey Trent, I was checking out some of the music on your site and I really like it. I played in bands in the past and appreciate all kinds of music. Plus, we share the same great name!
    I will be following your blog for more updates and any new music.
    Have a great day!

      With a great name like that how could I do anything except follow you in return? Thanks for the comments. I post a lot more fiction than music but you should see some come up now and again.
