A writer is all I ever wanted to be. I “wrote” my first story before I could actually read, or write. I dictated it to my mom, and she wrote it down. She then folded the sheet of paper into a little quattro, and I illustrated it. She still has it.

I sold my first short story shortly after I got out of college. I wrote off and on, but sadly I lost most of those early efforts to Hurricane Katrina. My journals, too. I hadn’t wanted to believe it would be that bad. Well, Hemingway also lost all his early stories in a suitcase lost at a train station, and ultimately he felt having to start over again made him a better writer.

After a long hiatus post-Katrina and graduate school I have started writing again. I write science fiction and fantasy.

Saddling Up and Riding into the Sunset

WIKIPEDIA: KOMA MODULAR CONSTRUCTION

The plague year changed things for me. Changed how I think about things. I had a non-Covid-related health scare myself last year — I was in hospital during the spring lockdown. It was rough and scary. Since then, I’ve thought a lot about what I value, what I want to do with my life. Which may not suddenl

“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”
