    "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 still waiting on my sister,

    my editor, to edit my story... Though, I don't know why I'm rushing so much... I don't plan on publishing my book, until the Spring!

    I LOVE writing. But since my depression I have

    been having a really hard time finding the motivation to write. I have about three different stories, two of which I have outlined into future books as well. But I can't get out of this funk and start writing. I hate seeing this awesome story I have written and being too afraid...

    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...

    EP, with only one exception until now. I'm a journalist by trade, and I believe I've been blessed with one of the best jobs on earth. But that's not what I mean when I say I'm a writer. I write to bare my soul, to say things I don't know how to express aloud. I recently fell...

    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.

    Are you the thinker of the thinker? Can you think clearly? Perhaps you're just a mind-reader.... And that's okay. If you can't think straight then what else is there to say? You could be the talker? The one who says things... But talking isn't cheap, Unless your voice sings...

    Certain Things.....

    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...

    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...

    ideas a day. From a creative standpoint that looks good (at least in my view) but I am a go big or go home kind of guy and if I can't turn that idea into a minimum three book series I don't have the will power to even start. What I hate even more is trying to get these ideas...

    Let's face it. We're writers

    because we love words. We love the way they build worlds and convey emotions. We love the way they roll off our tongues like succulent morsels and flow from our keyboards in an ever streaming river of thirst-quenching ideas. Words are our babies and one of the toughest things we...

    I got to interview a NY Times bestselling

    author today at work. Surprisingly, I haven't much enjoyed interviewing authors as, in all my experiences, they tend to go on and on about themselves long after your interest has faded. I'm inclined to believe it isn't so much that their...OUR...species is arrogant, but rather...

    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...

    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.

    As a writer, I admit

    that it’s entirely possible to romanticize a person to the point where they no longer seem human. Scientifically, everyone knows that the neck of a lover is not a lavender field, and that their smile does not, in fact, hold the moon, the stars and the sun. But do you choose to...
