    I started writing when I was 10.

    I've written on and off since then. And even when I'm not writing, the plots drift in and out of my thoughts. I've only finished a few books. Only tried (and failed) to publish one. (And that's okay, I'm not about to base my talent off of that one failure. I know I'm a good...

    Being a writer is much harder

    than it seems but I love it. My mind and spirit are so wild and untamed that writing is my only way to free the inner-being that is myself. Call me Andrei Svetyevokov and hopefully one day you'll be able to read my work. But with every page I write a part of me is able to escape...

    Pit’S Note Book Avalanche (Part 5)

    It was early evening, winter. The sun was dying slowly. Outside was white, crispy and cold. Sun and moon were bouncing over snow covered hills and making them sparkly. Inside was warm, quiet and cozy, such was the evening. Adam and Mirabelle were sitting in the dining room and...

    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...

    Starting out as a writer is not easy,

    but having faith in your work is important. Practice makes better. I'm starting out and I haven't a clue really where to start. I want to get my name out so people have an idea of who I am and I want to get my work out there also.

    Obscene times that skew far from bizarre,

    sitting underneath a star. Fantasizing unseen actions, with conditional tractions, additions create circumstantial attractions. If omnipresent natures develop habitats for which nurture, Then one will be perceived as mature.
