    I’m not really a writer,

    but much more of an observer. I much rather read other stories, instead of writing my own. Although writing is one of my favorite ways to express myself. I should really scale up the volume of posting content on this site. I want to be a better writer and I strongly feel the...

    Thoughts Of A Hopeless Romantic

    She’s a storm in my heart. 
 She’s the thunder. 
The lightning.
 The rain. 
 She’s everything I’m afraid of, and everything I love.
 She’s the rush of the wind. 
The warmth on my skin. The quivering of my bones.
 She’s the snow on my tongue...

    I've always loved to write.

    In fact, I dropped out of school when I was fourteen and took an exam equivalent of GED so that I could focus on writing till I go to college but the plan got way out of my hand and here I am, far from being a writer, in fact, I haven't written anything for the past.. I don't...

    I write. That is a bold statement

    as most people write to some degree. They write notes; they write checks and so forth. I write books, poems and especially erotica. By erotica, I don’t mean a description of body parts rubbing together; I have seen that a thousand times and frankly after a few of those I...

    Writing is great therapy,

    an escape and the best way to figure out what's going on in my head. I started writing in high school because I am a bit of an introvert and writing was one way to say how I felt without actually having to say anything. Writing had been there through the good times and the bad...

    Writing is an exercise in make believe.

    It can in some ways transform us back to our childhood where make believe was a way of life. After all, we create characters, give them a personality and identity, put them in a location where they can interact with a bunch of other characters and then we create situations and...

    I started writing when I was 9 years old.

    I found myself hidden in a far corner, with pieces of paper and little tiny nubby pencils. Writing has always been my outlet and way of saying how I feel through poetry. Expressing oneself through words can be quite remarkable. Showing others that you are in sync with your...

    Writing Takes Me To Another World.

    Writing.... I'm the quiet/shy type which is probably why I love to write. I express my feelings through it... when no one else wants to hear me I go straight to my journal. I love how I can just escape the world sometimes.
