As you know, I write this blog. So I could, technically, be called a writer.
But I'm not a Serious Writer.
And I have no desire to ever write a novel. Ever. I love to read them. And I can be quite voracious in my reading appetite. But to create one from the gauze of my imagination? Nope. Can't do it. I am too practical and utilitarian for that. So I will leave novel-writing (and navel-gazing) to the Wonkas of the world who can invent fantasy with a couple of pieces of string and a ball of tinfoil, while I will gladly devour your literary output.
After all, someone has to read all the writing.
