R.P. (Rod) MacIntyre is a fiction writer and editor. He has also worked in radio, television and theatre. He travels extensively performing readings and workshops across Canada. He was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (1947) graduated from the University of Saskatchewan (1971) and presently makes his home in Christina Lake, B.C. Canada and La Peñita de Jaltemba, Nayarit, Mexico with his partner, Sharyn. They have ridden by motorcycle from sea to sea, playing golf along the way.



In the beginning, I thought I would place work-in-progress here, but that seems to be a step in the wrong direction. There's more than enough bad, first-draft writing out there. You don't need mine. But I do have a lovely title for something I am working on intermitently--John Lennon's Chair.      

Later, I had hoped to write a smart, engaging blog about the writing process but I see the web is full of that kind of stuff and one more would be one more too many. Besides, I just don't seem to have the time expecially since the "private edit" part of my activities seems to have taken off. I am presently doing three of them and they require the same attention to detail as editing for a publisher (which I also do) and are equally time-consuming. (Now here I must interject in a bloggy sort of way that I really am not certain that "time-consuming" should be hyphenated, but as a single idea, it should be a single word, or so it seems to me. I do, however, stand to be corrected if needs be.)

Suffice it to say, this space may remain pretty much as it is--blank. Unless I am hit with a brainstorm and need lots of feedback.

Thanks, Rod
