I would like to think that I have always had the gift of writing. Early on my biggest focus was always poetry and song writing. I joined the Marines right out of high school and strayed away from writing. Now I have been afforded enough time to pick back up again with one goal in mind, write a book. I plan to write poetry in between because I enjoy the calmness it brings. I currently have a work in progress and I'm very anxious to post my outline in two weeks time. I'm by no means above anyone or feel that I am, I take everything with a grain of salt and I'm open to all criticism advice etcetera... thank you all and I'm excited to restart this journey.
