Hi. My name is Matt, and I'm a writer. That's an easy sentence to put down; what's hard is finding the proper words to put after it. While I've worked at a college level as both a journalist and an editor, my primary interest is in writing fiction. Most of my own work, whether novels, short stories, comic book scripts, or role-playing game adventures, is fantasy or science fiction. This blog is meant for two purposes: a place for me to showcase and discuss the things that I have written or want to write, and a place to talk about storytelling in any media, from the craft that goes into stories in general, to a favorite character, line of banter, or really big explosion from a specific story.

Among other things, I intend this journal to be a safe space in which people can engage in charged discussions. If I fail as a poster or a discussion moderator to make this a safe space, please let me know, publicly or privately - whatever you're comfortable with - and I'll do my best to address the problem right away.

Brighter Planet"s 350 Challenge

"Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, 'Where have I gone wrong?' Then a voice says to me, 'This is going to take more than one night.'" -Charlie Brown.

Even into the shadows, one must walk with faith.

I must write before this passion from upon me fades;
I must keep this fire burning in my veins.
I must hear these winds singing in my mind;
I must transcribe the descant their voices climb.
I must feel this cool mantle once more descend;
I must do justice to the eloquence it lends.
