Writing is my passion.
What inspires me to write?
The world is full of wonderful stories. One need not travel to exotic locations for inspiration. Almost any life experience, when told well, can make a great story.
A large part of being a good storyteller is being a good listener. You would be surprised the great story ideas that abound when you strike up a conversation with a friend, an acquaintance, or even a stranger.
I write because I must. It may seem trite, but it is the only reason that makes sense to me. When I don't write, my mind becomes a muddle of thoughts and images. Writing gives me a way to process the chaos by putting pen to paper, or mouse to keyboard to brain. Connecting these dots is a simple and necessary catharsis to bring order back to my world.
I write because I love words and their power to draw a unique picture upon each reader's mind. I love the sound; the musical rhythm of words written well and spoken well.

Please NO READER REQUESTS for HORROR, DEMONIC, SATANIC, EMO, GOTHIC, PORNOGRAPHIC, or EROTICA.
[To be clear, GAY-LESBIAN genre’s are fine, just none of the above].
***SERIOUS WRITER’S ONLY: IF YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN BECOMING THE ‘BEST’ WRITER YOU CAN BE, PLEASE DON’T FRIEND ME!***
I will respond to all private messages and review/critique requests as quickly as possible. But please limit your genre to that listed above.
I don't pre-read work before critting and I don't read other crits first (fresh eyes ::wink::) I read one paragraph and if the work looks like it will hold my attention, I'll dive in. If I find a bunch of typo’s or basic grammar errors I stop cold! So please use at least a spell checker available in virtually every program before posting. Nobody, especially me, wants to read a draft that is ‘that‘ rough.
