And Creative Non-Fiction Is Still My Favorite Genre

Statistics suggest that way too many Americans don't read. I walk into far too many homes here in Australia and see no book shelves, few books outside the kitchen, and wonder how the world functions without the joy of the written word. Most experiences in my life set me off on plots to create vignettes for future novels or travel adventures. Hardy a human passes through my life without initiating some sort of story in which s/he conflicts or interacts with some other persona whom I met the day or week before. Strange to think of missing out on all of this novel possibility.
