So, this is my blog. Hmmm. Where to begin?

Let's start with the title, shall we? Why 'The Accidental Luddite', you ask? Allow me to explain. No, is too much. Allow me to sum up. And two points if you can name the movie.

It's not so much as I have a problem with technology, it's more that I'm fairly certain technology has a problem with me. You remember the beginning of Jurassic Park, when Sam Neill touches the monitor and it goes haywire? Yeah, c'est moi.

So running a blog should be interesting.

Couple things off the top. One-what will I blog about? Okay, short bio: I'm a writer/actor/improv teacher from Toronto, ON. Not neccesarily in that order. Writing's the life-long dream, acting gets my stage-junkie fix, and improv is a love. My posts will most likely be about the writing, but I've had ADD (yea, you know me) for so long my attention will occasionally-squirrel! (another two points up for grabs)

Second, the rules. Actually, there's only one. Play nice. If you comment on my blog, I'm honoured--hell, I'm astounded you're even reading it. However, a chunk of the stuff I write is for Young Adult or even kids, so keep it clean and kind. Actually, I don't mind if you rip me, I'm pretty thick-skinned; so mainly, be nice to each other.

Finally, I'll try to post when I can. I'd like to make this sucker as useful to aspiring authors, writers, and artists as I can, so I'm going to try to post along those lines and also provide some links to blogs/websites that have helped me.

So, that's it to start. Hope you have fun.



PS. The Princess Bride and Bolt. Well worth seeing, mes amis.


  1. Welcome to this world and have a long and prosperous blog-life!

  2. *clears throat* umm...I haaatteee to correct...but isn't "squirrel" is from Up? Talking dog...wears a collar that lets him talk...gets easily distracted kinda like a certain sister-in-law of yours hehe.

    Can't to wait to keep reading!

  3. ^.^ Two points for me, and possibly two more for if "sangrealmazimur" is correct, which I think they are.

    Anyway, I read your story, "Super Family" in the Realms of Fantasy magazine. I loved it. Very engaging. And your little bio at the end of it is what allowed me to find your blog, which is how this comment has found its way into existence.

    I'll be looking forward to reading more of your stuff in the future. Ciao for now.
