R. Canepa is a writer, musician, beginning composer, and general dabbler. Never content to stay in one place, whether physically or otherwise, he moved from California to Gainesville, FL and has been an English major, pre-medicine with emphasis on neurobiology, a middle school science teacher, and a programmer.

Once upon a time, he also wanted to be a comic book artist, a chef, a stuntman, a robotics engineer, and a pilot. He still thinks those options sound pretty good.

In his spare time, R. Canepa reads, watches movies, plays video games, and takes up way more hobbies than he could possibly have time for. Visit http://rcanepa.net for the scoop on it all.

I don’t usually blog the day-to-day kind of stuff, but thought I might shake things up and give it a go.


It’s been nice to finish my writing early today, to work past the difficult portion and sail into the calmer waters of Having A Clue Where The Scene Was Going, and being able to get it there with a minimal amount of fuss.  I’ve split my time the past two weeks between producing work and reinv...

“I had no money, no food, no prospects, no contacts. Eating was my first priority, and for that, one usually needs money, and so lo and behold I had a goal in sight. I collected cans and bottles, scrounged parking lots and sidewalks, my head held low and eyes intent on the ground instead of where I was going. Vending machines and pay phones sometimes gave up their treasures in the form of change people had forgotten to collect. They're not what I'd call jackpots, but finding a dollar here and a dollar there is a lot when you have nothing.”
R. Canepa, Norton's Ghost

“But the beauty is in the walking -- we are betrayed by destinations.”
Gwyn Thomas

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
