Writing.

Here's a complete list of all of the writing available for your perusal. Enjoy!

articles (sympatico)

Probably the most money I ever made for writing (amongst other things) was the year I spent at Sympatico. Someone higher up had decided that they didn’t want the company to just be a gatherer of content; they wanted to create content, too.

short fiction

Every once in a while, I get an itch that requires attention, usually after I read some short format fiction that knocks my socks off. It’s kind of like seeing a really, really good band play live; you want to do something to get closer to that experience and somehow make it more yours.
