The Manic Depressive Work of Writing Fiction

Hello All.

       So, writing....I really need to talk about writing at the moment. Why? because I seem to not be able to.

         Though, of course, none of that matters here. This is not a place where I will be posting any of my writings. No, this will be a place for me to get nerdy as well as bookish and maybe even a little crazy if it comes to that. Basically, I&…
