Musings about aspects of life as an adult on the autism spectrum. Opinions and hypotheses are my own, though I try to do my homework. I do not consider myself an expert on anything other than my own personal experiences.
Like most, I'd like my life to have meant something, to matter. I want to find a way to leave a legacy, but without children, a career or any notable accomplishments, that's hard come by. How do others do it? I conducted a handful of interviews with some friends of mine with whom I shared the youthful aspiration of a creative career -- an aspiration that didn't pan out for any of us. The point of these discussions was to see what I might learn from the way they handled their own transitions into middle age, responsibility, and lives more ordinary than planned.
Reports from the front as a beginning fiction writer. I figure, I've been studying the behavior of humans for quite some time now, so I should be able to draw on that experience to generate believable scenarios and situations. Ha ha, I kid. Not really.
