    Inner Child:

    Life is hard as we walk through the years Steps we all take bring laughter or tears. It starts with birth, that first burst of light. Eyes flutter shut, cuz it seems so bright. Needs are so simple, warmth of a breast. A blanket so warm, forms our first nest. Life beckons...

    Recently in my life I have felt

    On the Inside Looking Out Writing is all I

    ever wanted to do. The first diary ever given to me was a gift from my brothers’ godparents back in 1975. Kindergarten was soon to start and the minute knowledge I attained on writing was what television, or my mother, instilled. The learning of these symbols was exciting...

    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.

    So I joined a creative writing group.

    Last week two people read their work and the quality of it blew me away. Next week it's my turn to read and I just don't know if I'm good enough. I've written a story today, and whilst I don't think it's terrible I know it's nothing special either. I'm really nervous and not...

    To perpetuate and to be perpetuated are perhaps

    two of the several reasons why someone writes. In my case, these are my personal ones that keep myself flowing the ink. It does not matter and I do not care when will I stop, as long as I am relieved. Perhaps I have this unusual kind of anxiety, or rather fear, that most elders...

    Never thought myself much of a writer, but my time here on ep has unearthed a passion within me that I never want to extinguish. I don't know if I have the talent, but feel there is a story to be written that may be bigger than ep. Thank you ep, thank you my friends on ep.
