    Introduction From My Latest Book...

    The Way I See It A psychotherapy client once accused me of not having the ability to appreciate his situation because I was “happy.” I thought about that for a second and then replied, “Do you know what it's like to be 'happy'? When your home life is going well, work...

    "Two-Faced" written by me Why are people

    so quick to hurt Someone who’s different Attack their character worth I am saddened by humanity’s lack We are supposed to be better Than a two-faced thumb tack It has a smooth edge on one side With a dull view It has a silver, shiny, pretty look on the other With a thorn...

    I'm the dying flower still hanging on to my

    stem.. The flower everyone walks by.. The forgotten one.. Unloved.. Uncared for. The one everyone thought was fine yet I'm dying. Can't you tell?

    You know what the most hurtful thing is?

    Is that I really wanted him to love me. Love me deeply and mean it. I wanted him to tell me that I meant something to him. But I suppose I didn't think that what I needed was for myself to be honest. Be honest... What does he mean to you? Everything! Or maybe not... But he meant...

    So, I'm scanning through channels on the TV

    and came across a commercial for Recta-Care. It got me thinking; unless your a **** star. How often does the average person take care of their rectum? So, I wrote it down on my grocery list. I guess I better get some. Woo Hoo, lol.

    and I am exceptionally impressed by those who are able to post daily or even regularly. I have no idea how you all are able to keep up so well. It's a bit inspiring that people have so much they are willing to say and share so often. The writer in me wants to do a study on it...

    "Do It Yourself" by me We each have a house We

    live in every day We are the caretakers In every way I eat chicken, I eat fish I deal with reality, not a dreamy wish I drink water, I shower in it too I have a Heavenly Father Keeping close to God is what I do I wear clothes, I sometimes adorn with jewels I exist with geniuses...

    You know what makes me nuts?

    I'm gonna tell you. It's when I've been stuck on a scene for months. MONTHS. Then something or someone throws out a little spark that ignites an idea in my mind and all of a sudden I realize I'm going in the wrong direction in that scene. All I had to do all along was...

    A good one. Not a great one,

    a consistent one, and definitely not a published one - but it's my greatest passion and I will chase after it for the rest of my life.

    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...

    Whispers softly spoken,

    words rarely heard, a lullaby sung sweetly as the tide begins to turn It was something that was said, one of the things I heard inside my head Sing to me a bitter sweet melody, whispers of what wasn't meant to be

    I wrote poems and fanfics and posted some. I was surprised when I got so many reviews and readers. When I was 14 I tried writing a book. It was badly written but my readers loved it, and then I kept doing it. I'm 18 now, I have a few books finished, some unfinished ones and a...

    “Hollow” A cacophony of emotions flood

    Did you ever notice that certain things only happen in the movies, but never happen in real life? For example: 1. It is always possible to find a parking spot directly outside or opposite the building you are visiting. 2. When paying for a taxi, don’t look at your wallet as you...

    I love how people respond to posts

    and say, "I'm a writer," or, "Published author here" as if it gives more validity to their words. Anyone can get published and you're not any more immune to being an idiot than the next person.
