About Austin Hackney

Austin is a professional writer and editor. During a decades-long career, he's sold dozens of short stories, hundreds of articles and TV scripts, and thousands of blog posts, newsletter inserts, technical documents, and other B2B communications. As he approaches his life's third and final act, he's focusing more on long-form fiction to fulfill a life-long dream. Skeptical about everything else, he believes in kindness. Here, he draws deep from the well of experience to share sensible advice for serious writers and occasional diversions into science, philosophy, culture, and the arts.
