    Do You Not...?

    Weaving Emotions Into Strings of Words...

     I'm addicted. I can't go without reading, literature, fiction, research, spirituality, anything except the news. I'm nearly as addicted to reading as to writing. Weaving emotions into strings of words that make up the blanket of escapism. I love languages and I...

    Words To Me

    Words to me weave another world. They make it seem like I'm another person doing some amazing thing or living some interesting life. They pulled me in who knows how long ago and haven't let me out since. I'm addicted to books, and I'll never overdose.
