I am a recent graduate from our local college with a masters degree, so am just now getting started on my “real” career. I have always been a helping type, so I am hoping this time the career I’ve selected lets me do what I love to do – help. I have also loved reading, hearing, or telling a rousing good tale. I am trying to marry the two loves into a schedule I can live on. Often both desires are more than a full-time commitment.
Oh, and let’s not forget the other personal biggie – I’m a night owl. If it’s before noon, I can pretend to be functional, but that’s just the caffeine talking. If I go too many days before 10 AM, even a direct infusion of caffeine isn’t enough to make me a nice person to be around. And, for some reason most of the world seems to think that a good time to start work is 7:30 to 8:00 AM. Umm, how about we just go ahead and skip the write ups, bad attitudes, and general unpleasantness that I become? I’ll do us all a favor, and look at something that lets me cater to my lazy morning tendencies.
Sound good to you?
Thing is, I’m not really all that lazy. I think better at night, and my muse tends to visit me at the most God awful hours of the morning. So, I tend to wind up writing late into the wee hours of the morning, which is part of why I’m such a nightmare when I have to be up before noon. I admit, writing for me can be as enthralling as reading. There are times I’ll be in the middle of writing something, and have to walk away for a day or two in order to indulge a reading binge.
Another thing, which I’m sure you’re noticing already… I talk. A lot. For some reason, I have yet to define, I always do my best to answer in the most thorough manner possible. This often leads to an encyclopedia answer.
If you’re trying to get to know me a little better, then I have just the resources you’ve been looking for. Here is the list of interviews others have given me. They were a fun experience, and a bit strange. I’m used to being on the other side of the table. There are a few more interviews or tours in the works (aren’t there always?), and as they go live, I’ll add them to the growing list.
