About Me

I'm back.

I've been gone for a long time...but in my absence I've begun a novel. Dark comedy, satire, existentialism, the works. Let me know what you think.


My name is Oz. I appreciate the dark, the weird, the unexplained, the esoteric, and anything abnormal. Normal is boring and I hate being bored.



I'm a little eccentric.



My father is a chain smoking playwright who gave me a single piece of advice for writing:

"Tell a story."

He also offered a single pirce of advice for life:

"Well son, life's a b***h."

Perhaps it's more of a statement than advice, but it rings true in my life every day. Thanks dad.


I enjoy writing and being a writer. We are a special breed. We see the world differently. We abalyze things differently. More importantly, we express things differently. Those abilities set us apart from others. That is why I am Oz. I am a mere man hiding behind something much bigger...the writer.


Oh! I happen to know I'm not the only one fed up with this so...to all the people who give half-assed reviews or don't even review my work at all after I've read yours countless times...congratulations, you get a big middle finger from me. You know who you are.

Hey, I don't know when you'll get this, but what happened to this site? I came back to check on it and almost all my old friends are gone, there is no forum and i just feels empty and meaningless, this used to be my home, I spent most of my day here. It's worse than myspace, because it used to be something so much more. Do you have any idea? Was the change to the site so long ago really that drastic? Wow........I miss talking to you and I hope to hear from you soon, you should email me, coneko13@yahoo.com

Aw...you and Tammy both! I know, though...it really is!! I only have one story up and I know how you feel!! Sorry it took me so long to get to it...I had to wait until I was in good form...as when I started to read it a while back it was hitting too close to home (as I briefly mentioned in review). Anyway....I'm still waiting for Step 5!!!! Don't forget to let me know when it's up, ok??? Love your writing!!!
Much love,
Cat

I'm doin' all right Oz. My company is hustling right now, so I'm in a crunch. Birthday is coming on soon. XD

I hope things go all good for your girlfriend's birthday, happy birthday to her. =D

I'll read up on the Steps as soon as I get the chance. Take it easy Oz!

I am still screwing up...not being practical about this writing game. I had about 3000 words in my bag the other other day -- pen on paper -- threw my wet swimming towel and trunks in bag. Next day I come to type up the stuff on screen and yeah...one big blue splodgy mush. Couldn't blame Charlie for this data loss!

indeed- the poetry fits it in a manner that
is 100 percent entwined..and there for my
first impression-speculation could easily be
disregrded and i can appreciate it for the
collaboration it is.. exactly...

the poetry you entwined..
is brilliant... but I wish you wrote it
or maybe thats the brilliant thing.
i have to think about it.
