Okay, I’ll admit it. When I first started this blog, it was to promote a novel that I was publishing. I had not done much blogging before, but my publicist (believe me, it sounds a lot more impressive than it was) said it would be a good idea to start. I’ll still promote my work from time to time, but I’ll try not to be obnoxious about it.
I guess you might want to know about me (or maybe not). I’m good at a few things but not really great at anything. Take my writing. I’ve published some things, but I’ve never had what I would call an earth-shattering sale. Time and time again, I have overestimated the greatness of my writing. I’d like to blame that on the delusions that sometimes come with being bipolar, so I will.
Sometimes, I say wise things (#crossbytes) but I’m not wise overall. I’m normal. Sometimes I can be funny, but I am not the life of the party. In fact, most of the time I don’t even go to parties. I need alone time. It’s the INFP sometimes J side of me. I am at my most funny (funniest) when I have a partner in crime. When my brother and I get together, we are hilarious (at least we think so).
I’ve been a caseworker, journalist (sort of), a DJ, an account executive (advertising salesman), a retail specialist (salesperson for Walmart a long time ago) and probably a couple of other things I’ve forgotten, but mostly I have been an educator, over 30 years in the classroom. Though retired (kind of), I still teach part-time at a local community college.
Mostly my wife and I babysit our granddaughter which is an adventure in and of itself.
That’s me. By the way, in this blog, I might write about anything. I guess I need to focus on something, but since my mind is mostly unfocused, I doubt if that happens.
