I’ve considered starting a new blog for several years now. Funny how “thinking about” can’t make anything happen without some kind of actual forward movement toward the doing part. But here I am, finally, and here you are.
My plan to take over the universe starts with this blog — a place where I share the results of my wanderings through the uncountable speculative fiction worlds waiting to be discovered out there in the ‘verse. Some stranger-than-fiction findings from the planet we call Earth might even make their way here. I hope you’ll share your journeys and discoveries with me, as well.
Here you’ll also find postings about my writing journey, which always starts with “thinking about” and moves along different tracks and at varying speeds (depending on how much chocolate I consume in the process) towards what I hope is a coherent, compelling tale worth reading.
The tagline of this blog is “A Wanderer of Worlds.” Aren’t we all wanderers to some extent? I don’t know about you, but I haven’t found my way home yet. That unsettled feeling used to nag at me, hissing in my ear that I was some kind of strange creature. The feeling is still there, but now it’s like an old friend who whispers to me from a butt-shaped impression she’s worn in my favorite couch:
All who wander are not lost. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
You’re here. I’m here. Let’s say we make this journey together.
