Why a blog?
I wanted to wrangle all my writings into a handy, condensed format so they’d be tidy, nicely presented and couldn’t get lost or burned. I could also add items if I wanted, or alter them. Maybe more people could discover and enjoy them. My disparate forms could be together.
What was your initial intention for all this?
I wanted to save my progeny from boredom on rainy days and when there was “nothing else to do.”
It’s a lot of stuff. Where’d it all come from?
Good question. I’ve read this from songwriters: “No idea where they come from. I just seem like the conduit through which they flow.” I think that’s about right. All this has come amazingly easy for me. Often when I’m writing I’ll actually chuckle or cry about what comes out. I enjoy writing.
I have to admit yes, or maybe I have fantasies. It’d be awesome if I were to be discovered. A publisher or something could happen. I’d love to have my children’s stories wonderfully illustrated. I think each of my novels could become quite interesting movies. I mean they’re already in dialogue form.
