Rewrite of first page...

I've been struggling to keep my pace going, and yet, get the essentials down. Give it a read if you will, and let me know what works or doesn’t work.

On a side note, I have determined to do what it takes, and never give up on my dream… even if it takes the rest of my life. I thank everyone who has been a part of my development. I hope it isn’t too much to read, thx either way.

Removed... Thx for the ones who offered opinions.

I am on the verge of giving up…

The more I try and learn proper grammar, and storytelling. The more I feel it’s almost impossible for me. It is a hard thing to realize your dream, just might be, impossible to achieve.

I guess I have been living in denial this whole time. I just kept telling myself if I continue to write and try to learn basic grammar through videos and books, it would work out in the end… so far, I think I just might be too much to accomplish.

I wish the technical side of writing would come as natural to me as coming up with the stories has been.

I’ve finished my 98k word novel, and began the revising part, but now, it might find its way into the trash forever.

It just feels to daunting. I would give anything to go back and pay attention in school, instead of partying and ditching classes all the time.

I just hope my mind changes in the next few days.

Thx for stopping by.

What to post?


I have been pondering what drives me to choose a book when I am looking through my local book store. I have condensed my findings to three key points…

Now disregarding the books from authors I like or the books other people have suggested I read, I have chosen these three points.

1: I pick books by the cover… if I hate the cover I won't even read the blurb.

2: If the cover strikes me and I love the story idea… hence love the blurb, I will then move onto three.

3: Open the book in the middle and read several pages; if the author can make me like his writing in the middle of the book then I know it is for me…

Now what makes you buy a new book from an author unknown to you?

Thx for any comment you might leave and thx for stopping by.
