    The Fire

    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!

    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...

    Its Me and How I Express Myself
