This is my first blog. I know….I’m a little ‘late in the game’ with the world wide web and all its wonders. So, I want and aspire to be a writer; a great creative novelist. Not a published author working at a Starbucks wishing their first and only book were a success so then they wouldn’t have to be standing all day making bitchy peoples’ coffee non-fat. Everyone’s always telling me that I should do something to ‘put my foot in the door’ or whatever. They’re right. Unfortunately the liberal arts industry is not what it used to be, and being a well-known writer isn’t as easy as it used to be. The industry is flailing in a sense. But no matter how hard it is to be a writer, how unconventional a career choice, or how stupid I may seem, I truly believe that my mind is too fucked up to not share with the world.
