    "Judgment" by me There’s a lot of hate in

    this world It happens from the snooty To us boys and girls Wear this, wear that Too skinny, too fat Why can’t we all love one another Get along Harmonize differently with the same song Congregate here Listen to this You’re a wuss if you fear So many find a reason to diss...

    I haven't posted many identifying statements on

    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...

    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...

    Just nailed my intro paragraph

    for a novel, and it's a good feeling. The blessing and the curse of being a published journalist is that my brain is trained to obsess over the lede, which means I can't bring myself to become fully immersed in the rest of the story until I'm confident in the initial bait-and...

    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...

    I shared some of my work with my mom

    for the first time in many years. I read to her all day! She loves my work, and wants to see me pursue it. I don't know how to feel about this. It's done privately in this room where I've spent the last seven years, barely leaving the house. No one in the 'real' world knew I...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
