The Why For

I write nonfiction for a living and fiction to live. A few years ago I purchased my first tablet pc, an HP TC1100, and I fell pretty hard. I can’t imagine buying another computer without a pen. I really can’t.

In December 2005, I dropped my HP and broke it. Not having much to spend on a new tablet pc, and not wanting to invest much in a pre-Vista machine, I bought a Toshiba Satellite R15. The unit weighs more than twice as much as the HP, but I love the 14.1-inch display, the decent keyboard and the relatively loud sound system.

So my intent with this blog is to share my thoughts on creative writing, tablet pcs and the intersection between the two.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
