Well, this is it. This is how it begins.
Several months ago while digging through an old box, I found this copy of On Writing Well. Many moons ago I kinda, sorta considered myself a writer. This is from a class I took in college. About two weeks into the class, the professor came up to me and said, “What are you doing here?”
I looked at him perplexed and said, “I have to take this class; it’s a prerequisite.” To which he replied, “No, I mean what are you doing here. You shouldn’t be in my class. You shouldn’t be in any class. You should be writing professionally.”
That was more than 25 years ago. It wasn’t the first time someone had said that to me. And it wasn’t the last. Maybe it’s time I murder my inner contrarian and give doing the one thing I was likely always meant to do a real shot.
So… that’s what I’m doing. That’s what this is. I’m relaunching my long-defunct website and it will, from this point forward, be dedicated primarily to highlighting my work as a writer. It is admittedly lacking at the moment… and by lacking, I mean completely and utterly devoid of any original fictional work right now. But that will soon change.
It’s likely that most of the work featured here will be fiction, primarily in the form of short stories and serials. But I will, from time to time, certainly write other things. I have quite a lot to say about the world we live in and I suspect there will be plenty of political & social commentary published on this website, as well.
So… welcome. I hope this won’t be your only visit to my website and that you enjoy your time here. Comments will be open whenever I publish anything new, so feel free to tell me how much I suck, how I shouldn’t have quit my day job and that my future as a writer is extraordinarily bleak. Or you can tell me I’m awesome. That’s fine, too.
