    Trying Is The Key Word Here

    I am trying to write a book. I am better at keeping journals though. Reality is easier to comment on than fiction. Fiction is challenging! I have written about 40 pages typed so far of the first draft and I am going to keep going. My influences are; Oliver Sacks, Robert Crumb...
