  • On Hobbies

    Character flaw: I have no hobbies or other areas of interest outside of stories and publishing.

    For twenty years I’ve lived and breathed this stuff. It’s how I spent ALL of my time. What it’s left me with is nothing to do when creative time is done. I’m a different–and older–man compared to my twenties and thirties. I have responsibilities, people to love, and a life to invest in thus my working time has been cut back.

    As much as I’d like to say I do this morning until night–like I used to–now I do it morning until late afternoon, which leaves many other hours in the day. I’ve figured out how to spend some of that time . . . but I need a hobby outside of collecting stuff. I need a hobby where I DO something.

    Heck, it might even feed into the creativity.
