Myself

I arrived on this planet, late one cold afternoon in April of 1984. I’m still not sure how it happened, but one minute I was warm and cozy and the next minute I was being accosted by a man in blue pajamas. I have been stuck here ever since. 

I’ve tried to make the most of my time here, however. I found a human to bond with and we made a tiny human of our own. He is small and makes a lot of noise, but he turned out to be pretty cute. So we decided to keep him. 

When I am not attending to animals and their pet humans in my pet store, I make markings using clicks and taps on this robot box. These markings tell tales and I believe they are why I am here on this planet. 

Let me share my markings with you. 

My mission...

…..should you choose to accept it, is to bring you art. I will bring hilarity, drama and pictures of cute animals. I will help to inspire your craft. I will motivate you. I will get all up in your face and force you to create things. I will gift you with knowledge and ask that you do the same for me. I will learn from you. 

Here, you can find writing prompts, motivational quotes, brainstorming sessions, book, television and movie reviews, blogs about things, blogs about nothing, musings from the animals that visit my pet store, pictures of food and a level of honesty that will annoy you.

Most importantly, I will bring you along on my journey as I attempt to craft my very first novel. You will see my wins and failures, when I think something is awesome and when I think it is shit. I will introduce you to my characters and you can simultaneously follow them on their journey to find an audience. 

This message will (not) self destruct in 3…2…1…
