does the word "story"
mean to you?
Great stories are the greatest lies in the world, and the greatest
means of telling the truth. (I may well be plagiarising someone
there, but I'm not sure who.)
Do you have a reader in mind when you write stories?
I write for myself primarily - to entertain myself, and teach myself
new things. Hopefully there's enough people out there who share my
own curious taste.
anything you'd like to ask someone who has read your collection,
anything at all?
FB: Would you buy my
next book based on having read the first one?
it feel knowing that people are buying your book?
What feels odd to me is that my stories are being read by people who
I've never met, and who I'll probably never meet. One way or
another, they'll get to know a lot of things about me, and I know
nothing about them.
What are you working on now?
Lots and lots of things. Later on this year, I'm planning on
releasing my second performance poetry album, and my second book - a
novel this time. Now I'm working on another short story
collection, in between doing things to promote A History of Sarcasm. Basically, I'm very busy.
