A Longing to Write
Sooner or later, most people develop a desire to write. Has this happened to you? If so, what have you done about it?
I started writing for our third-grade news bulletin at the age of eight. It was a science-fiction story, whose name I still remember: The Unknown Element. When I was in grad school, I published an article in the Carnegie-Mellon student newspaper, The Tartan, that showed the number of different chess games was hugely larger than the number of atoms in the known universe. Anyone care to play?
Later, I wrote a poem for Kay when we were “going steady.” It was entitled The Passion of the Nero Stallion…whinny, nicker, trumpet, snort! :). Speaking of Kay, her first novel, The Watch on the Fencepost, is now being published by CrossLink. Hooray for her! In fact, it just came out on amazon.com for pre-order. More information is available at http://www.kaydibianca.com.
Since then, I’ve written three, as yet unpublished, books, a novella about a young physicist and his family entitled In Praise of Mrs. White, a long, sci-fi thriller called The Centaur about a cosmic event that changes the earth and society, and a contemporary romance called (name withheld). The latter story is now in its final draft and is targeted for publication in 2019.
That’s enough about us. We’d like to hear about you. So drop in and tell us about what you have written or hope to write someday.
