2 or 3 (or 20) things you don’t know but now do

Busy busy with work and writing and so on, so here’s another time-saver of a website update.  If you don’t know me, you may find these illuminating. Actually if you do know me, you’ll probably find they explain a lot.

  1. I hate being photographed.
  2. I don’t like being hugged, esp. by people I barely know.
  3. I rarely have more than 1 cup of coffee a day (which for a writer is rare).
  4. The most valuable tool in my writer’s toolbox? Post-its.
  5. I am a total introvert. Always was, always will be, which best explains why I became a writer.
  6. “Brad” is actually my middle name.  “Robert” is my first, after my father and grandfather. They called me Brad to avoid confusion with the aforementioned two (which doesn’t explain why they named me “Robert” but whatever).
  7. I lived in 9 different cities by the time I was 13.
  8. I rode a bike last year, for the first time in 18 years.
  9. Despite jokes and tweets to the contrary, I’m not really much of a drinker.
  10. I remember things that happened 20 years ago with greater ease than stuff I did last week.
  11. I studied film in university, majored in screenwriting, and paid my student loans off in totality with my first screenwriting gig.
  12. My first pro screenwriting gig came two and a half years after graduating.
  13. I’m shy in real life, which probably explains why I’m more successful in online relationships than actual face-to-face ones.
  14. When dragged to parties, I used to sneak paperback books in with me, find an      out-of-the-way spot, and read quietly. Now I just fiddle with my iPod.
  15. Counting sleep and writing time, I probably spend the majority of my day in my pajamas.
  16. I am one of those rare people who can and will keep a secret to his dying breath.
  17. I have a natural distrust of people. Believe me, it was earned.
  18. I have no tattoos or piercings.  Just not my thing.
  19. While I own a cell-phone, it’s never been activated (or used).
  20. I’m only close to two, maybe three people. In the entire world.

And the bonus round:

  1. Growing up I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. I bet I would have been a good one too.
  2. I could swim before I could walk.
  3. My first memories were at 5-6 months old, and I have the picture to prove it (surprise, I was in a pool when it was taken).
  4. My left leg is half an inch shorter than my right, due to a bad skiing accident I was in at age 9. I still limp slightly when walking too long.
  5. Lists are a good way to waste time.
