I’ll be posting regular fiction and essays here over the next six months, maybe longer. Hopefully I’ll be a better writer for it. I’ll be writing every day and hopefully posting most of what I write. It’s tempting to post it all, just for the sake of keeping a public record and making sure quality control doesn’t go by the wayside (i.e., “Oh, I’ll write something today, but it’ll be junk that I slam out in a hurry and I won’t have to post it anyway.” I know myself well). So we’ll see. Watch this space – will get loud about this in about a month so lurkers are welcome. Please feel free to comment as regularly as you want. If you post spam on this page I will ban you from commenting forever and scour the internet for your username and report every domain you link to as a potential phishing scam to anyone who will listen, so please don’t do it.
Today, I live in Brooklyn, am 28 years old, married, and work for a few different newspapers around the city, where I have friends and go to church and eat a lot of really bad Mexican food and read whatever I can put my hands on. I’m on my lunch break right now. My name is Sam Thielman.
