Hiya! My name is Joshua M. Neff and I write things.
Most of the things I write are in my head, but some of the things I write are on paper, and some more of the things I write are on this website–which is not made of paper. I mostly write poetry and fiction, but I also write about writing, what it’s like living with anxiety, depression, and ADHD, as well as things that excite me and life in general. If there’s a theme to this blog, it’s “what it’s like to be in Josh’s head.” Which is why it’s called “Mercurial Comics.” (It makes sense. Trust me.) I’m also a librarian, so I sometimes write about library issues. At least, I used to. I might have run out of things to say on that point.
I’ve lived in many places around the world, but I currently live in Kansas City, which is named for the state of Kansas but is in the state of Missouri because America is weird. But you could say I live in the state of Anxiety because HA HA HA HA MENTAL ILLNESS IS HILARIOUS.
You know, I talk about myself a lot (like, A LOT) on Twitter and Facebook, but writing about myself here is getting painful. I’m trying to be clever and witty and cute, but I’m not sure I’m pulling that off. I’m overthinking this. I’m good at overthinking things.
Hey, do you like cats? I love cats! Here’s a picture of my cat, Oberon:
