I remember being told more than once, “write what you want to write.” It took me years to figure out that such advice really isn’t entirely accurate. Because writing isn’t a selfish pursuit if done correctly. In fact writing is basically the most irritating, maddening act of stupidity one can partake in IF they are […]
I’ve stepped into the Comic Book Realm and it’s NUTS here! Soooo . . . clearly I’ve been a jerk to my blog. My last post was in August – AUGUST. What the heck?!? There is no excuse for that! Well . . . actually, being a writer I could make up a novel-full of […]
