"Science fiction is an existential metaphor. It allows us to tell stories about the human condition. Isaac Asimov once said: "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all." - Closing comment on the 6th episode of season 10 of Stargate SG-1" I write when inspired, which only happens now and then. I build fantastic worlds and interesting characters, but my plots tend to meander off on random tangents and fall apart. I tend to prefer fantasy, but science fiction creeps in. currently, I'm on a bit of a steampunk binge. My background is my life as a student who majored in changing majors (philosophy, chemistry, art history, anthropology, psychology, humanities, biology, music). I don't have a degree in anything and my grades were variable at best, so I took off and spent some time abroad and I'm still on hiatus. I'm still not sure what I'm doing with my life. Whatever enables me to pack up and move to a new locale every six months or so would suit me, I find I don't enjoy being stationary for too long.
