About Me

I’m here for the high, Writing. Don’t let anyone tell you I’m not. I love you, I hate you, I want you, I need you. I chase the buzz when I chase the words.

~ John Vorhaus

 

About Me.

I’m everywhere and nowhere. I start and I stop. I reach for the stars and belly flop back down to earth.

I do, therefore I am.

I write.

I write scenes in my head while sitting in traffic and record my voice rambling on about what a character is thinking, feeling, what he’s eating for dinner. What I’m eating for dinner.

I consider all the ways my protagonist can start a fight with her mother, her boyfriend, her dog.

I research international airports and use online generators to brainstorm code names for CIA operatives or clandestine government programs.

What’s the most popular Ford Mustang of all time? The ‘71? Was there a ‘71?

I clear my search history every hour so no one will suspect that I’m poisoning my husband or considering a career in art theft.

I invent Irish myths and court cases, and put characters in cities that don’t exist so I can build a community around them.

I feel guilty for not doing more.

More.

Always more. More work, more time, more reading, more writing. If I’m standing still it means I’m about to be run over. Except, isn’t it good to stand still once in a while?

Today, I sat in an all-day meeting and processed a week’s worth of information in eight hours. I’ve never questioned how I do that. It’s never mattered.

I do, therefore I am.
