Geek or Nerd? Neek?

I'm the opposite of an idiot savant, an idiot dilletante maybe, with an incredibly broad range of interests, a vastly thin veneer of understanding and mastery of very little. I love writing though.

Love, love, love it.

For years I wrote short stories and have written 32 novels - okay the beginning to 32 novels- but now I write for the screen. One thing, as it so often does if you're open to it, lead to another and I'm now a writer/director in a production company along with some other incredibly talented individuals that have actual depth of skill. Lucky eh? We haven't made any money so far but we have banked a lot of time, laughs and learning. Fortunately that's what the business plan said we'd be doing.
