    As soon as I started learning how to read

    and write, they were two of my most favorite things to do. I absorbed written stories readily and for the majority of my childhood I thought as if I were composing a piece of pros. I was fascinated with words and how they work together to craft entire worlds. I wanted to be an...

    Really, A Writer?

    Writers are carnal bastards that talk with their fingers. We live to tell everything. We live to expose our soft under bellies because we are all shameless exhibitionists. We are profoundly sensitive and we care too much, but, oddly, we won’t answer the phone when our best...
