    I So Do.

    That's why I need to pace myself with my time. I am addicted to EP and spend too much time here. I need to get busy on my book and stop coming here every single free minute. WTF? I spent the entire morning doing research. Then came back to EP and stayed for too long. Then I...

    The Fire

      I stared into the flames, entranced by their blue and orange hews and wondered what it would be like to be consumed by these dancing devils. I knew the coals beneath their feet were keeping them alive as they writhed and flickered mockingly, knowing that I couldn’t...

    But Who Would Read It?

    I love writing about witchcraft, but who would read my book? I mean, I'm sure there are a few people who would check it out but in all honesty.... I won't be saying much that hasn't already been said. Maybe some outlooks or personal opinions, maybe a couple of new techniques (or...

    I Would Love To Write, But Who Would Pay For It.

    I've been writing for years, but the marketing is the problem. People want to pay for the usual pabulum, not truth and reason.  Or, perhaps I'm just not good at marketing.  Carpe Diem!
