About Me
My flirtation with the dreaded forties has already begun. I don't know if that is what catapulted me into the mid-life crisis that I currently face. Frustrated by the intensity of my ambitions and unhappy with my accomplishments, I seek greener pastures to fulfil my destiny. Unfortunately, I still don't know what that is.
Type of Writer
I'd rather tell than show and use the passive voice, if that makes my writing productive.
Writing Style
I have been told that my writing has the distinct style of someone whose native language isn't English. Is that a compliment?
