    • Long Story Short
    • I chose the journalism profession for a reason. I love to write and I love to tell stories. But I'll be honest, I don't have the attention span to write a book. I had a fantasy at one point in my life about writing an adventure novel. Something with a little mix of fantasy, romance, pure action with a good vs. evil battle, you know, pretty typical. At first I got a pretty good start. Twelve pages in on one Saturday. Three pages that Sunday. Then I slowly started showing less progress, down to the point where I wouldn't write anything for weeks and then ceased to write at all. Then, a few months later I'll rediscover my works in the depths of my computer archives and try to start again. But the rush is gone. The ideas have fled. So let's just start another one! Needless to say, I have about 3 unfinished works of literary awesomeness just sitting in my hard drive that I will probably never finish. Because long story short, my stories are meant to be a long as my attention span can handle.
