For as long as he can remember, Michael Rupured has loved to write. Before he learned the alphabet, he filled page after page with rows of tiny little circles he now believes were his first novels and has been writing ever since.

After the writing begins, the characters come to life at some point and take the story in unexpected and often surprising directions. I get lost and/or stall out because the story in progress is not the story I set out to write. Enter writer's block. I've learned to just keep writing. After false starts and a few stumbles into blind alleys, eventually I find my way to the end.(less)

Retirement Bliss

The first four months of my retirement were crazy busy. Remodeling projects kicked off the first week of January and continued well into April. I’m happy with the results and thrilled to have the near-constant disruption behind me.

Having to work would have complicated things. Telecommuting would have been a challenge with all the noise and I had no desire to go anywhere. Call me weird, but I want
