When I was a kid, there were lots of things I wanted to be when I grew up. Scientist. Farmer. Magician. Cartoonist. Movie star. Secret agent. My aspirations were all over the map. What connected them? They were all about creating experiences for people. I knew that’s what I wanted to do, long before I knew who I wanted to be. Why? Experiences define us. They’re the subtext of our emotions and our choices. So creating experiences touches every part of my life: home, family, friends, art, work. It’s at the heart of my relationships. My priorities. My poetry. And it’s why I feel equally at ease as a copywriter at an ad agency and an artist at a reading. Writers create all kinds of emotions for our audiences every day. Not a bad gig.

    Are these the beginnings of ideas for fiction writing; are you going to develop these, or are these finished as they are? Is this a new form of fiction writing? Not sure I understand what you are trying to do here. Each one begs to have you tell us more. Will we see that?
