Stephen King once told me that to become a better writer, I should write every day. I don’t write every day and I don’t write good, but I try to post something a few times a week just for the hell of it. I just write because it feels good. A sort of mental masturbation; not quite as messy as the real thing.
This blog first began when my wife and I lived in California for a few months and I wanted to document our travels. Since then, it has become a wall to which I can post all the crap that comes to mind.
I’m a software developer living in West Michigan, a self described nerd and introvert. I grew up as a very conservative fundamentalist Baptist kid, a team which I stayed on until my mid-twenties. I’ve since freed myself from religion and now I’m fascinated by its weirdness. A lot of my posts are commentary on the whackiness of believers.
My wife is an amazing woman, a nurse who spends her nights saving and healing babies, a much more nobel profession than writing websites that sell shoes.
We have no kids yet, but we have the best dog ever.
