.... scream? Hopefully not. I'll just put TBD for good measure. Hello everyone ... it's been a long road coming here from writing short stories in English class to creative writing in college and to now ... trying to keep the passion alive amongst family, work, and play. I guess I'm coming here for support since writing is such an isolated activity. A couple of my short stories have been published but each credit amounts to something like twenty rejections a piece and I much as I can say that "rejections don't bother me" in truth, rejections bother me. Yet the alternative, is far worse. In any case, hello to you all. I look forward to the conversations, the honing of craft, and maybe, the easing of pain provided by the mailbox.
