"I see things that never were and say, why not?"
Hi everyone, Ryan let me take over his site for the moment and…
*laughs manically while stroking my beard*
Ryan asked me why I write and how I got started. The answer is simple, yet complex, inspiring, and at the same time just like everyone else… but the answer is the same for both questions.
I see things that never were and say, “Why not?”
It’s my mantra, or my personal life-quote. If I had a shield with a family crest emblazoned in the center, this would be the motto.
It’s my take on a quote by Robert F. Kennedy. “Some men see things as they are and ask, “Why?” I dream of things that never were and ask, “Why not?” Good quote, you may have seen it in
the Star Trek Tech Manual for the Next Generation Enterprise. I am a sucker for fictional tech manuals, and Art of books.
Back to the quote though, it’s true. I am a dreamer. A storyteller. I love words, and can even put them together in interesting ways sometimes. My earliest memories are of telling stories. I played with G.I. Joe and Star Wars figures, and sent them on amazing adventures. It’s an only child thing. Then in elementary school, my creative writing teacher had us making a book each year. We wrote stories, illustrated the pages, and she bound them. Eventually, I would travel to schools telling stories, and success in the theater made me want to write for the rest of my life.
