Why I am a writer…

It all started 31 years ago, when I was 14. I had sent a short story to Isaac Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine; and Mr. Asimov wrote me a hand-written letter saying that I should keep trying, but they did not accept submissions from people so young.

So, I am a writer. I started writing poetry, which developed my voice, and now I have returned to fiction. It is my calling-it is who I am.

Soon I’ll be publishing a free book of poetry through Smashwords.com, and then more will follow. I’ll submit my stories to magazines and my novels to agents. Then we’ll see where this leads.

But no matter what, I am a writer…

Lunchtime

In the silence of vision
Was the cool of air
The white of light
And the blue of sky
Much was resting
The heaviness of space
Became the heaviness
Of silence and time
All was languid
Life moved on
Cars meandered down the street
People flocked along the sidewalk
And all the signals silently marked time

But in one room high above
An old man clutched his chest
Unable to call for help

Hello world!

Well, hello there! Welcome to my slice of the blogosphere. From here I’ll be posting on the writing life and a life of writing. Perhaps some other things as well. From time to time, I will post my own poetry and short stories. I think I will even post chapters from my book.

Thank you all for stopping by.

Take care!
