    Greetings from the treasure state

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Turkeyneck, Dec 28, 2013.

    As I listen to Holiday's I'm Pulling Through, I really can't think of anything witty to write. Who cares? Anyway, I spent over a decade in academia wallowing around in the world of philosophy. It bored the crap out of me. Thinking about it now, I don't even remember why I even started a program in graduate philosophical studies. Jesus!
    Last year, I sat down and wrote outlines and a few chapters here and there. I foundered. Each time I wrote, I returned to stale academic writing style. Every time I started to write, passive voice and trite phrases bled all over my pages.
    Anyway, hello. Currently, I live in Bozeman and hate it. Next year, I will move back east. I feel better now as I think about it. One novel falls into biblical-historical fiction; I'm not a bible thumper. I adapted an old story as a springboard. The second novel is a novel about politics. Well, do I have an agenda somewhere?
    I like cats and dogs, walks in the.... blah blah blah.
    I look forward to hearing from any and all.
