I am playing around with different “bio blurbs” for my Amazon Author’s page. After writing a few little biographical sketches I decided to look up a few famous authors on Amazon to see what they put as their author’s bio blurb.
So the first one I looked at was Neil Gaiman. Here is what he had to say:
“I make things up and write them down. Which takes us from comics (like SANDMAN) to novels (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies (like Dave McKean’s MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or my own short film A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).
In my spare time I read and sleep and eat and try to keep the blog at www.neilgaiman.com more or less up to date”
I don’t want to copy from anyone, but after reading this I decided that if he can get away with that, perhaps I can get away with my first idea. What do you think?
I never decided what I wanted to do when I grew up. I compose and play music, draw and paint, take a lot of pictures, and yes, I write. I’ve written a couple of books that are sitting on my shelf waiting to go out and I write a new short story almost every week, which I often post on my blog, trentsworldblog.wordpress.com. I’ve collected some of the best short stories I’ve written and put them out as “Seasons of Imagination”.
I also like to eat, so I work as a computer nerd during the day while I figure out what it is I really want to do.
Or do I have to be famous to do something like that?
Anyway, I was doing a selfie-photo shoot with my good camera. The picture at the top is not the one I want to use, I’ll save that for later, but was something I did on the first day. I decided to wait for better morning light to continue. I was right, the light was much better. I also had some portrait pointers after showing this one off.
