First things...

I'm doing this because someone told me I should. Not usually a good thing, but in this case, it's someone whose writing (and person) I respect, and because I should have been writing for a very, very long time and I've just not.

I used to write a lot. I used to write for cash money. I used to teach writing.

Then the realities of Living In America caught up with me, and I grew tired of being broke. So now, I climb around under people's desks (stop that at once!!) repairing and administering their computer networks, and it really pays much better than writing. Unless you're Stephen King or some such...

At one point as an adjunct professor, I could have taught five sections every semester and still collected food stamps.

I have NO IDEA who put you up to this. But I am very glad somebody (ahem) did!
