Every writer lives in several worlds, hopefully one at a time. While sitting in front of my computer, I have inhabited the unharmonious planet Harmony, the newly colonized planet Cyan, the tilted prison planet Stormking, and a future Earth where India is the new home of advanced science. And I frequently find myself in the World of the Menhir, where the rules of science don’t apply at all.
I have been chased across Europe, gotten lost and found in the Sierras, and taught middle school – all in novels.
I have also taught middle school in real life, since few writers make a living at writing.
Now I’m here to tell you about how those worlds came about. You’ll find that story four times a week in A Writing LIfe. You’ll find serial fiction in Serial, also four days a week.
Come back often. There will always be something new.
