I’m a writer.

To write or not to write? There is no question. I write.

I am, therefore I write.

I figure I’ve written millions of words in my life, maybe billions. Stories, emails, teaching notes, blog posts, poems, articles, sermons, songs, research notes, books, to-do lists. Some of those words have even meant something. Some have have even been true. A few have even been beautiful and good.

This site is a portal for my short fiction and poetry. I plan to post a poem or story here now and then. If you enjoy it, please pass it around with a mention of my name and a link to the specific page or this website (www.michaelwilliampahl.com).
