Watch COUNT WILLIAM:

Get to know writer Tegon Maus:

Matthew Toffolo: What is your 1pg Short Story about? 

Tegon Maus: Perceptions…. People already have their minds made up about almost everything. You can give them 3 words and they will jump ahead because they think they know where the story is going… I like to make sure they don’t !!

MT: What genres would you say this short story is in? 

TM: Humor

MT: How would you describe this story in two words?  

TM: Pleasantly unexpected

MT: What movie have you seen the most in your life? 

TM: It would be a toss-up between ID4 / Twister or 5th Element I have seen them all at least 9 times !

MT: How long have you been working on this story?  

TM: A weekend

MT: Do you have an all-time favorite novel? 

TM: Any of the Lensmen Series by E.E. Doc Smith

MT: What motivated you to write this story? 

TM: It was a Vampire story contest

MT: What artist would you love to have dinner with? 

TM: Jackson Pollock… I had read that in 1952 Jackson drank a six-pack of Coors beer and then filled the cans with different color paint… he then hung them with string over a blank canvas… poked a hole in the bottom of each with an ice pick and beat them wildly with a stick while listening to rock and roll ! The result is his now famous painting called Convergence that he sold to the Chicago Museum of Art for $68,000. Now that is a dinner conversation I would like to have !!

MT: Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about? 

TM: I write, paint, sculpt, garden, wood work, and love to take naps !

MT: What influenced you to enter the 1pg. Short Story contest?  

Always looking for new readers.
 
MT: Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?   

Only one ! Write whatever you want… not what’s popular. Just what YOU want to read… let everyone else follow you. Not the other way around.
