I’m Eric Schweitz. I am an engineer and I live in Oregon with my family. The stories here are my original fictions, responses to writing prompts, goofy attempts at levity, etc. I hope you enjoy them.
One good question I’ve received is “Why?” as in “Why did I create this blog?” One answer to that question is that I believe stories are an integral part of the human condition. Storytelling is not only a human activity, but it shapes so much of what it means to be human. A picture may convey a thousand words, but a great story can convey a kaleidoscope of nuanced ideas, allowing each reader to expand and exercise their own imagination. Another answer is simply to have a little fun and practice writing.
If you enjoyed the posts here, you might want to check out my other blog, which is intended as more silly “kid friendly” sorts of writings.
