    I've always loved reading

    and writing but I just find it hard to tell if my writing is good or not... I have this one piece that I started when I was 13 so it really needs a lot of work but I need ideas on how to make it more believable and exciting. It has a good storyline just not very deep or detailed...

    I love writing so much.

    Fever It was early when you let yourself out.

    Maybe it was too early in the morning, or maybe it was just too soon. Maybe there's no difference at all. You didn't stop to say goodbye that day, and I woke up wondering. I wish you had left me wondering, but instead you came back. Here's to the night I stood alone. Here's to...

    Short Stories of Adventure.

    I love writing short stories. Sharing adventures that are dear to me.  It's the taking the reader for a ride. If just for a moment. That in itself is a thrill.

    Crafting a story and imagining the characters is wonderful. However, I am my own worst critic. Sometimes I read what I've written and then put the story aside because I don't think anyone else would care to read it, sometimes I stop because the direction I'm headed doesn't feel...
