david_nix_headshotWhen I was a kid in dusty, rural Wyoming, I wanted to be an astronaut. However, I don’t have the “right” stuff, so I settled for becoming an engineer and reading science fiction.

When I was a teen in dusty, West Texas, I wanted to be a famous writer. However, I don’t have the “write” stuff, so I settled for becoming a self-published author of science fiction.

I sense a trend. Now I live in the dust-free mecca of Austin, Texas, so perhaps the trend is reversing. These days, I just want to change the world. Even if I fail, perhaps I will fall gloriously short. Hey, here’s to dreaming!

If you don’t write, then you should. Even if it stinks. If you do write, then keep writing. Even if it stinks. Everyone’s voice is uniquely interesting and worth sharing. Written words are the vehicle to leave behind pieces of your soul when you exit this life. Leave a legacy of “you” to those yet unborn!
