What do you create?
Primarily novels, but also short stories, book reviews, music, and sometimes photographs. I enjoy making neat piles of things, or visually striking arrangements of similar items, like pens, books, eyeglasses, guitars, shirts, shoes, LPs, and packages of food. I like making amusing signs for my office door. Also classroom handouts. Websites. Jokes.
Why do you create?
It’s the most fun thing to do, and the thing that makes me most feel like a real person. I don’t have any illusions about my work lasting beyond my own lifetime, or even very long when I’m alive, but I rarely feel happy unless I’m making something.
