“I could put out a better book than that”
Like many of us who spend our free time with our noses in a book (or tablet or e-reader or headphones listening to a book), I’ve often fantasized about writing a book. I read the stories about how Tolkein built his super rich world and despaired at ever having the dedication and the attention span to do something like that.
I like to finish a book in a weekend (reading) how could I spend months or years writing, re-writing, refining and editing a book? I’ll just stick to writing 250 word reviews of other people’s work under Pabkins watchful eye.

10 Things That Every Brand New Creator of Science Fiction Should Know
(Tabitha piping in here for a second – I used to think that yah someday I would love to write a book but now a days I’m like uhhh no, never, no way, no how! Think about all that work! And I totally don’t have any original ideas – and I’m terrible at witty dialogue. Essentially I would get ripped to peices if I were to ever try. I hate reading trash books and hell I think that’s all I’d be capable of. Now back to my anime watching….cause I’m sorely lacking in the concentration dept for reading the past two weeks – can you tell?)
Father of four, who spending most waking hours working as an executive at a health care company. He is often cranky and sometimes a know-it-all. He has a unique relationship with books. Alan cut his teeth reading science fiction (Niven, Pohl, Asimov, Clarke, Card) stolen from his father's bookshelf. In 7th grade he discovered Anne McCaffery and Piers Anthony which expanded his horizons into fantasy. At 16, a young lady suggested that Anne Rice writes some "hot" books. His beautiful bride Maggie introduced him to PNR (Laurell K. Hamilton). His guilty pleasure is "cotton candy" pulp fiction from the 50s and 60s (Edgar Rice Burroughs).
