Hey, you’re a pretty good writer. Are you writing a book?
I have a manuscript and am currently seeking representation. The book is a collection of creative nonfiction essays about life. The writing is much in the same vein as what you would find here on the blog, with attention to narrative storytelling and pace. Enough being formal. It’s funny as hell, moving, entertaining, and you’ll dig it. My favorite writers are Dave Sedaris, Augusten Burroughs, Anne Lamott, and Lorrie Moore. I’m channeling a bit of them for the 1980s crowd of thirtysomethings looking back at their own nostalgia and looking forward. Interested in taking a look? I’m interested in showing/bribing/stalking, whichever you prefer.
Okay, so who are you?
A person with a secret identity. A writer. A weirdo. A genius. An idiot. I began life four days after Christmas, which means people are sick to death of buying presents by the time it’s my birthday, and I usually just get gift cards. I was born in 1980. My current life ambition is to win something, anything in a raffle. I have never won a raffle prize and I find that hard to believe. Hell, I even won the Mega Millions twice—17 bucks total.
I am pretty liberal and listen to rock and roll. I am a Beatles geek. I am fervently against double dipping and I rage into the good night against burritos that are still frozen in the middle after cooking. I am of average height and weight. I have a nice head of hair. I am training to become strong. As a child, I never had a cavity.
