Allo friends, About me, shall we say that I am me, myself, and only I, except perhaps when I am other than that. You see I'm Sam, I love to write, I love to read too but am terribly picky, it takes a bit to get me to look at a new author, if I like them I read all they have, if I don't, the first book goes in the pile and never is seen again. I was told unfortunately that I've a gift for writing, and should seriously look into something more. Sadly this puts a pressure that nobody needs, when first I write here, and say whoa my friends, read these words and verses tell me with pure heart what you see. What do I do when I hear, Bah this is rubbish its crap I see not why you waste my time on these simple words. And then I crawl back into the dark and write no more. But as such I love to write and have often imagined I have a story to share I've yet to find it but its there. So I am here. I know places I lack, dialogue for one, I'm terrible with it and need to hone it if I wish to ever make something more than a few pages long. I cannot say I dream of publishing, I do love to write and while I'd enjoy writing for the masses I think by and large I am more intimate than that. So I come here to seek a bit of a shelter where I can find feedback on my words that come from sources that have no investment in me as a person that I might find an unconstrained hand to criticize what I might write. To find resources that others have gone before and found were helpful. And perhaps a place to come and make new friends, new acquaintances in a subject that I find few relate to in life. I am Sam, and I am here.
