Get Your Geek On!

Just some ramblings about being a geek and the similarities I seem to see with a lot of aspiring writers. Not everyone celebrates their geek so bracingly as the guys on The Big Bang Theory; apparently the same goes for many aspiring authors - at least until they get published, I guess!
