Right now, I'm reading: How To Write Short: Word Craft For Fast Times by Roy Peter Clark
My favorite story of all time is: ... definitely something quirky, contemporary, written in conversational tones without weighty descriptions, has a great hook and first paragraph, with a resolved ending. Works like: Tunnel Vision by Keith Lowe, and Everything Matters! by Ron Currie Jr. and authors like: Alan Lightman, Magnus Mills, and Nicholson Baker
In bed I like to read: ... and write! My most creative thoughts come when I'm horizontal.
If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell \"it's the story of my life,\" what would you be talking about? Lately that would be... "Inertia". Life moves by quickly, but I'm standing still.
What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time? "Everything changes. Fret not. Everything changes."
The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is? "Be Here Now" by Ray LaMontagne and "Play" the CD title by Moby... all words I need to emulate.
If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be? J. D. Salinger... the author who turned me on to the written word.
