Looking Rejection In The Face

Let's face it, writing is a hobby that makes us naturally susceptible to rejection.

It's like mentally you thirst to spill your writer blood onto a blank paper, a vast stretch of white space without limitations except for those which you yourself create. You want to let the…

My Writing Life

The lack of posting is not due to laziness (me? lazy? No way), but to a very busy schedule. I thought I'd give you all an update on my writing, which I haven't gotten to do in a while. Some of you know that I finished a novella a month or two ago. It's a…
