"When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain, ... then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink."
-- John Keats When I Have Fears That I May Cease To Be
I write novels and novellas. I've never quite managed the art of the short story. What you'll find here are mostly reblogs of things that interest me, natterings about what I'm currently writing, reviews and comments by other people about what I've already written, and my occasional opinion of the world if it's annoyed me enough.
What do I reblog? Beautiful photography, interesting commentary, good artwork, things that strike me as funny, engaging, or important.
What interests me? Sherlock Holmes, Asian culture, criminal profiling, history, steampunk, Ironman, the BBC, Blake's 7,vampires, New Orleans, books, writing, anything Jeremy Brett, and just about everything. I've recently developed an appreciation for Loki and Tom Hiddleston. I really like the BBC series Sherlock
Personally, I don't care what age, color, religion, race, or sexual orientation you are and so you shouldn't care which I am. But yes, I probably am old enough to be your grandmother and, yes, I have already done that and was magnificent at it. And yes, the story about the Italian cover model, his wife, and the bottle of Vampire vodka is true. Though I'm sure people have embellished parts of it.
