Though I didn’t verify this term with so much as a Google search, maybe a Friction Writer could be:
- A career nomad who knows a little about a lot of things
- A sarcastic, non-expert who prefers comedy over substantive material
- A real softie on the inside, despite a mean, leathery outside appearance
- A writer at least at an 8th grade level
With any luck, I won’t get some letter of contention from disgruntled physicists claiming they are, in fact, the Friction Writers.
Now, I don’t agree with that old guy who said that a writer, by his very title, must excel in something other than writing, like parachutes, hunting, or macrame.
In fact, I think the main point of my writing is to work things out. It’s not to instruct, sermonize, or even make you change your mind. It’s more like a Think Pad. You read it and either agree or disagree, hopefully with a laugh, comment, or conversation with me along the way.
I’m a 45 year old husband, married happily as a clam (because clams are happy) to my amazing wife. I also feature five kids, which I believe makes a gaggle or a muster or at least a drove or something. I live in suburban Houston and love it. I’m reviled by many, however, for loving the Tennessee Titans.
I’ve done a lot, including: Video Production, Electronic Music, Foodservice Sales, Teaching, Bartending, Small Business Consulting, and collecting TV cable boxes from delinquent customers in scary neighborhoods. Oh, and some writing here and there. Currently, I am a Spanish teacher and tennis coach. Overall, life has been rewarding.
