I am one Barry Hess. It turns out there are many in this world, and I am one. Minnesota is where I have resided for most of my life, and it is probably where I'll be for most of the rest of my life.

I try to write every day. My writing can be found on my blog, secret poetry blog, microblog, personal newsletter, Good Enough newsletter, journal entries, and sometimes in the logs of doevery.day. I also keep a commonplace book for my own amusement.

On most days I work a little on internet madness. Sometimes I'll take a break from writing and interneting to do a little woodworking. Years ago I acted all serious and helped build Harvest, but to be honest I've always been happiest goofing off on the web.
