I don't think you would find my life particularly interesting, let alone unique. In fact, I'm probably much like yourself. I didn't create this blog in five minutes or even hours. Took me forever just to get the fonts right as nothing ever works like it's supposed to. So, blogs are not necessarily created by those with special abilities. Or special ideas. Just those who are really stubborn.

I spent decades trying to discover what I really wanted to be, what I was most passionate about. Of course, growing up, we're mostly passionate about disagreeing with others. But I was lucky enough to realize very early on that I wanted to do something creative, something that can't be done by a machine. Not yet, anyway. I even remember saying, when I was about fifteen, that "I will never be able to sit in an office and work the same hours every day". Yes, that was my first job, how did you know? And second and third, yes. See, told you we're not that different, you and I.

But then, there was an opportunity, at a rather strange and unexpected moment of the past. Actually, not an opportunity as much as a decision to change something. With a bunch of creative ideas sitting in my head, some even leaving it, I decided not to wait, tucked in false security, till I was old enough to say "Well, it's too late now". It's so much better trying when you're still young. You know, not good enough, but feeling like you're the one this world has been waiting for. Then, when you do get old, instead of regretting all the things you haven't done, you can nicely laugh at those you actually have.

And that's how, why and where this story begins. After creating my first video game, that the world proved not to has been waiting for, then doing a bit better with my YouTube movies, I have decided to finally grab hold of the writing ideas still in my head. Some of those will become short stories and be published here. Like the "Learning curve", my very first one. But I do wish to develop most ideas into full novels. And hopefully, they will be published somewhere else.


So, this will not be a blog with regular posts. I will mostly be posting once I have a new story. Or an excerpt from a book, if possible. Perhaps sharing an idea or a poem once in a while. But I can assure you that I will read every comment you may leave. And it will be published, whether positive or negative. But if you don't like my work, I would really appreciate at least a brief explanation about what you dislike the most. And if you have any questions, I will always do my best to answer.

  1. Excellent idea to keep a blog. Allows you to put everything from small to large. I have over 25 blogs for various subjects: all my pets have their own blogs for all their activities and photos. I have put together travel and vacation blogs. I have one for family photos, going back to my grandparents from Italy, and I also have a blog for all the photos I took as a pro photographer shooting dog sports. And I have an Author blog, to post any writing or production project I work on. I have written and self published two books: one self help about renting with dogs here in the Bay Area and one historical fiction book based in the late 19th Century on the Texas/Mexican border. I have the second book in that adventure series almost written, and then decided to go back to college to complete my AA degree to become a private investigator here in California. As of today. I have two more classes to complete and one I am attending on line right now. The final class is the dreaded Algebra class. I swear that every human being does not need to know Algebra, but some college dean somewhere believes we need it , so it remains a General Education requirement for graduation. ARGH!

    1. It's an excellent idea when one has the time required. :) Can't imagine having so many blogs and I've actually moved mostly to Wordpress after this (ease vs customization). And then Facebook. :) Soon, I might give up on all and just shout from the balcony what I have to say. Still, I do love to write and do hope to find the time to finish the second and then third book before properly editing all and probably self publishing.

      As for Algebra, how would you calculate your fee and expenses as a PI without it? :)
