Why I Write
...Because I have to. It's a compulsion. And, no, I'm not an obsessive-compulsive personality. I am driven, yes. I am passionate. I am labelled a 'high achiever', though, when measured against the achievements of others I know and what they accomplish in the same amount of time, I'm a slacker by comparison.
Someone asked me what genres I actually prefer to write. I had to think about that, because, I love all the stories I write. I love the characters, I love their stories. But, when push comes to shove, when it comes to 'genre', I love writing science fiction. As usual, though, I don't write formula. The aliens aren't the bad guys. Humans aren't the heros. There aren't any bad guys and good guys, no good against evil. Because that's not really how reality works. It's all about perspectives.
