Why do writers write? My theory is they have no choice, unless misery is a choice, and I’ve given up on misery. I mark my serious foray into creative writing at about 2012. I’d like to say it was like being born again, but it’s been more like a slogging gestation. Still, I’m getting better at it year to year. I’m just trying not to run out of years too soon.
I write about questions I consider important. I’ve written a detective novella in which the suicidal victim turns perpetrator. I’ve written a sci-fi short story about nanotechnology used to implant programmed thinking into the President of the United States. I’ve published a short story on the Palestinian – Israeli interminable conflict, and I’ve published a couple of poems in a small literary magazine. Currently, I’m editing drafts of a first novel about a female L.A. lawyer who’s made a business of suing the Church for sexual abuse and ends up becoming Pope. (Why not?).
My writing routine since March 2020 is to host a Zoom group each weekday from 6:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. in which we do nothing but write. Reach me at 949-637-3360.
