Getting to Knoooow Me ….

Whenever someone asks what I do for a living I tell them I’m a writer.

“What do you write about?” is the inevitable response. And that’s when I start hemming and hawing. (What with being a writer and all, I should probably learn what hemming and hawing actually is beyond having a vague sense that hawing is something best done alone.) If you follow this blog, you know a better question is what don’t I write about.

In the last three or so days I’ve received a fair/odd number of emails from people asking what I write about. I think in the main they’re people going to Comic-Con? I dunno. But hemming and hawing face-to-face is bad enough; I refuse to do it over email. So I thought for any new visitors to my blog wondering what I write about I’d throw up the list below, which is simply my twenty-one most viewed posts. Happily, it seems pretty representative of what I do overall.

My total apologies to those of you whom I know have already seen some/all of these.

About John Shore

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    *raises hand* You have ThruWay Christians on there twice.

    Sorry, I notice things like that. It’s a blessing and a curse. ;)

    Oh, yeah, cool: thanks. Adjusted.

    well, getting to know your views on Christianity, anyway. :) Nothing in there (barring the high school teacher one) about your life or parents, which are some of your most amazing bits of writing, IMHO.

    That’s kind of you to say. I threw in “Mad Dad.” Now there’s 22. But who’s counting?
