    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Jack Asher, Jun 20, 2015.

    This is not the complete chapter as I found it, but the whole book is worth the read.

    That's a fascinating article, Jack. It's a unique discussion of the issues.

    Thank you, I wish I could have put up the whole thing, but I guess people just gotta read the book.

    That was refreshing. Art doesn't come from being perfect, it comes from being you. That's what I got out of it anyway.

    This is an excellent article.

    I really loved it. A lot. An astonishingly high amount.
