Well I had to call it something.
I’ve never been good with names. I even offered up Buttons and Pork Chop as possibilities for my daughter before she was born (she will thank her mom later for taking charge of that department). That’s about the best explanation I have for the name of this blog.
I promised myself that I would get back to writing, now that I have quit drinking. I am making good on that promise by writing some creative nonfiction pieces, autobiographical stories, and some works of short fiction. Mostly this is my journal space for stories and articles that interest me or affect me in some way, and I hope they do the same for you.
I have been a lot of things in my life from a business owner to a homeless man. I have settled down over the years and have narrowed it down to being just a father, a husband, a professional cook, a recovering alcoholic, a cynical bastard, an old school gamer, and an amateur cyclist; between breaths I am trying to fit in being a writer as well.
I am really just trying to find my footing and see where my writing takes me and how it takes shape. I really appreciate input, and criticisms that have a constructive intent. If you leave a commentary I will try to respond to it quickly and to the best of my ability. That said there are a few guidelines about comments that I maintain.
Thanks for reading and I hope you visit again.
