My self-summary
I'm that guy with the little notebook. The one that tends to trail off in mid-sentence and then jot down an idea. I'm a story collector, and I'm always interested in hearing someone's tale.

Put less poetically, I'm a struggling artist just trying to make the ends shake hands every now and again. Clean cut with an occasional vice, I've got a slew of odd hobbies that bring me into contact with a wide variety of people. But there's always room for one or two more.

I am cynical, anachronistic, and determined
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a literary mercenary, and I'm just doing my time in the trenches. My blog, The Literary Mercenary, is where I talk more about this. Check it out if you're curious, www.NealFLitherland.blogspot.com

For people who are genuinely curious about this part and who would like to know more, check out the FB page on the subject, www.facebook.com/NealFLitherland or just type my name into Barnes and Noble or Amazon. You'll find me.
I’m really good at
Writing, tale spinning, planning out specifics for trips and evenings, and fencing. The last is one of my favorites.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually, it's my hat. Other than that, not sure. Unless it's a kilt day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently wading through the Song of Ice and Fire. I'm a fan of the way Tim Curry reads "Crouch End", and anything that gets my blood pounding is a positive thing. I don't have TV service, and I'm a hard sell on most series. For my food I tend to stick to things that were once ambulatory.
The six things I could never do without
Work, travel, friends, release valves, and my goals. Yeah it's only five, use your imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why so many authors devote so much time and efforts to cramming in saccharine romance where it doesn't belong.
On a typical Friday night I am
It's a variable time frame.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a really unfortunate habit that I've never managed to break. I will answer any question, if it's actually directed towards specific information. I'm not being evasive on purpose, it's just that if you want to know more, you should ask.
You should message me if
If you're a writer, and you want to talk shop. There is a shortage of professionally-minded creative types in this area, and I'm always up for meeting more.

If you have any questions you think I could answer, or if there's some way I could help out. Generally speaking I like to be helpful.

You want to chat with me, and find out more about what's going on with the other side of the screen.
