About Me

Just a writer doing his thing. Nothing more, nothing less. Published in Foundling Review & Prima Storia, with forthcoming in Quay Journal.

When I'm not writing, I'm thinking about college basketball or music.

Why do you write?

I write for the possibility that we might all be happy someday. I write so that we may understand each other better. I write to make things right as best I can.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Stendhal, GK Chesterton, Umberto Eco, Mikhail Lermontov, Marguerite Yourcenar, Philip K Dick, Leo Tolstoy, Michel Foucault, Nick Hornby, Franz Kafka, Neil Gaiman, Frantz Fanon.

Weekends. You may mean danger "of", as in measuring quanities as opposed to "for", as in for the purpose. I'd also be inclined to delete "that" in the first line to make it smoother.
Idling. I'd love to see one more line in this section. You can decide what it should be.
Enjoyed. Brevity is the soul of wit.

Ha, Laura is so nice. And, ha, re your note on my wall. After reading your stuff I'm more resolute that a friend of Laura's is a friend of ours.

David Erlewine – Apr 08, 2009

Welcome, a friend of Laura's is a friend of ours.

Laura Ellen Scott – Apr 07, 2009

Laura Ellen Scott – Apr 07, 2009
