A father, a student struggling to finish his education in spite of severe chronic pain, a lover of fiction (especially speculative fiction), philosophy, and writing in general.
I am Michael, and I seek a medium to express my thoughts in–what I hope is–a clear and concise manner. A showcase for my writing and my opinions (since, lately anyway, some of my best writing has been whatever’s on my mind at the time). Perhaps someone out there will find it interesting, stop in long enough to leave a comment or two, or maybe even pass it along. Often I will not care if you agree with my opinions or not, and will care more about your thoughts on the writing and how well I have presented my arguments (but I can’t promise anything). Kind of academic.
I will say lots of things, though; metawriting is only one of the subjects I have in mind. Be prepared for political and philosophical ramblings, too!
This is my second attempt at a blog. The first I started as a way to promote a self-published book. Now I will direct everyone to a forum that still has all the archived issues of a web-zine I had for a few years called Tower of Light Fantasy. Otherwise, I’ll think about shameless self-promotion later. Authors are due to tell me to remove their stories but, until then, why not enjoy them? I was doing okay with it and even had help with some of the editing (Thank you, Boneman from SFFChronicles!) until raising a teenager and going to college at the same time got in the way. I might start the zine up again…I don’t know. We’ll see. In the meantime, enjoy my rambles!
