Since starting this blog, which was intended originally to be more about my writing and news regarding its publication-its theme got lost. I will endeavor to post my "deep thoughts" on my other blog, Furor Scribendi, which can be found by clicking on the link. I invite you to go there, read, absorb and comment if you like.
Welcome to Blank Space. In art, blank space is negative space. In writing, blank space exists between the lines of printed text (the black space). It is the unique perspective that a reader brings to the work; what the reader experiences in a work of fiction that may not be set down explicitly on the page. A work containing blank space has no overlong exposition, backstory or explanation. It is simple, direct and active.
Michael Hacker writes fiction, is a former stage actor and director, is interested in all forms of storytelling both character and plot-driven, loves to discuss philosophy, ethics and psychology, and criminal psychopathology. He is interested in crime and the legal system. He loves computers, but as an end-user. Mike's overall philosphy is stoic acceptance that mixes Christianity with the philosophy of Epictetus.
