- Welcome these years, Welcome the joy, Welcome the risks, The fears, the pain, the tears. Welcome the sting, Welcome the depth And variation And toughness And wildness of life. Welcome! .
Poetry is sketching. Fiction is the great painting, the messy monstrosity that could be art if I can just get all the 100,000 brush strokes to sit right.
I write first drafts by hand. I edit on a laptop. I approve by trying to read the damn thing out loud.
I write speculative fiction because I can create a universe and populate it with colour and ideas.
Me thinking I can create a universe…no bio need needed, right?
