About Me

I'm getting to the point where I can't stand writing these pithy things about myself. Does that work?

Why do you write?

Reading excellent prose, for one thing. Time to really sit and digest something. Things that make me uncomfortable and/or pissed off also works.

Writing is the thing I do that makes me feel the most like I'm doing the thing I should be doing. Which is exactly why it's often hard for me to do it.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Tolstoy, Carver, Trevor, Munro, Dostoevsky, Wolff, Kafka. "Anna Karenina" is right up there.

all right, p. "Deserve" is up. Very happy about this. I've wordcounted it several times because I still can't believe it's under 1000. Doesn't feel like it. Great story.
