Well, now that I have your attention, let’s get this epic show on the road.
My name is Rob Howell. I even filled out my About page, which actually has more information about me. What will become clear even without visiting that page is that I am just too opinionated not to express that opinion on the interwebz so now I stake my claim to a little slice of cyberspace.
You will find my opinions cover quite a few things, sports, politics, philosophy, music, and lots of history. Stuff. I like talking about stuff.
However, I don’t like talking about many of these things on Facebook, because what I want from my friends on Facebook are how their lives are going, not their politics or axes to grind. Since I figure my Facebook friends don’t really want to hear my opinions in their news feed either, I tend to avoid touchy topics and simply post cat pictures, song lyrics, and random whimsies. Here will be the crunchy stuff.
This will also be a venue for me to publish some of my fiction. Mostly what I will publish here will be stuff about my worlds and my characters. We all know exposition gets in the way of stories, but here I can toss out random small expositional bits that you can read, ignore, or come back to when you feel the need.
I will publish something at least once every weekday. We will all see whatever it is that inspires me on a given day.
Now, I will conclude my first post by quoting Walt Whitman:
“Afoot and lighthearted I take to the open road, healthy, free, the world before me.”
