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.
