    I've Always Been A Writer

    Ever since the age of six when I discovered how to write poems I have been writing almost non-stop. When I'm not at my desk, I'm writing in my head. I write and read in my dreams and there have been times when a line for a novel shows itself in my dream. Once an entire novel...

    My writing had been stalled

    for a while because of my own procrastination based on a pretty puerile reason. After recognizing the importance of not allowing something so trivial to stop me from pursuing my own passion, I've come back to it. I've also started to look into getting some of my work published...

    What did she need? She wanted reality

    but could not leave so she settled. I created her out of desperation. She is my order and partner to the Enforcer. She is susceptible to and shoulders the brunt of my woe. I wish she could have freedom. I refuse to deny her; she stays because she is my friend.

    My Writer's Manifesto

    Whether its exploring experiences sexual or platonic, writing must be detail oriented and character driven. The secret to truly inspirational writing is immersion. The reader must be transported wholly into the work. Smell the odors, consume the tastes, feel the textures, hear...
