Ideas for a book

One of my long time ambitions is to write.  I write all of the time.  For my M.A. degree I wrote a 165-page thesis.  I have started several books.  On the archives of my computer are several unfinished (and probably never will be finished) books.

When do you know it’s time for a change?

Let’s Get Started

Alright, we are under way.  The blog is officially open.  There aren’t going to be any real guidelines about what we talk about here… just a whole lot of this and that.  However, if you want to break down the posts, I suggest you click on the different categories over on the right. As we get rolling here, I will be posting some of the things that are going on…
