    Unasked.

    In the words of the great Charles Bukowski, one should only write if it comes "unasked", out of their heart, their mind, and their gut. I write because I can't stop myself.  I write because I feel it is essential to my being.  I don't write for an audience...

    Notebooks Filled With Thoughts

    Ever since I wa 13 I have written down my thoughts on notebooks and in them. Some are little descriptions I like while others are stories. Whenever I have an idea that pops in my head I jote it down. I must have nearly 30 note books not all of them filled but almost half are.
