So what do I need to say about a site subtitled “Fiction, Poetry, Essays and Junk?”
I guess first, I should say there will be no photos of my or anyone else’s “junk.” But the content could be considered just as personal. To me, writing is a very personal thing. I’ve been in the newspaper business and had the words I’ve written out there for the masses to read, but that was little more than my parroting what was going on in the world around me. Very little of it was personal, even the general interest columns I occasionally wrote about aspects of my personal life weren’t really that personal. And sometimes they weren’t even really true.
When it comes to my focus here – fiction and poetry – these are things I rarely share with anyone. I can count on one finger the number of other people I’ve let read the novels or short stories I’ve written. This site might not actually change the number of people who read what I write, now that I think about it, but it’s there if anyone’s interested.
The fiction I write is primarily Science Fiction; A genre I was told by a writing instructor in college (a reasonably famous Southern writer) had no literary relevancy. There may be some other stuff mixed in there. We’ll just see how it goes. As for the poetry I write it’s… well, I have no illusions about writing good poetry. But I enjoy it. And be warned, I’m somewhat obsessed with Haiku.
Hopefully, you will find something you enjoy.

If I didn’t mind people sharing, I wouldn’t put it on the Interwebs. If you decide to repost something, I would like to know though. So shoot me a message. And if any greedy publishing or Hollywood types like anything here, well, I don’t want much. Just enough to afford to retire on a private tropical island. So let’s talk…
