Staying up late, listening to Paul Simon and I have a notebook and pen. What will I do?

I think I will write.

I love how writers say that. With the most absolute conviction in their voice they decide to plunge right in. Consequences be damned.

I was one of those people. I had an idea for a character based on my own life and decided to jump on it. I sat down one night and wrote 15 pages for what I thought was gonna be a book.

A book about a writer and his circle of friends. Very Raymond Carveresque. A lot of humor and a fun exploration of life. I liked it. I was intrigued by the character.

I wrote about Nick Brennan for a while and then I had another character in my mind.

I had another character in my mind. An author who had the body and personality of Hemingway but the personality of JD Salinger and Thomas Pynchon. He was a legendary figure who wanted to come to terms with his fame. Jack Hillerman was a fun character. I have a lot more stories in mind with him.

I think that no matter what happens, there will be a story in the works.

I hope I will be able to continue writing for as long as my imagination will allow me too.

I wish all writers the best success possible.
