I’m a writer. At least in my head I am. It doesn’t pay the bills.
I’ve been a high school teacher, liquor store clerk, apartment lawnsboy, cafeteria worker, mental health worker, student, and I am only just over thirty.
I created this blog as a place to post my work. Most of them have been published. Some of them will never be published. Some of them will be sent out and nobody will take them. Some of them are extensively rewritten. Some of them are written in insomnia-induced bursts at three in the morning, never to be edited.
My goals in life: Do something other than teaching. Write and get paid for it. Be a solid father and husband. Live permanently somewhere other than Michigan. Be a genuine person and friend. Take nothing for granted. Stay alive for as long as possible. Die contented.
