The Need to Communicate.

                                     "A day without writing is like a day without sunshine."

And a day without seeing my children is like a day without oxygen.
This was one of the happiest moments in my life.
The other moments are the times that I get to spend with these two angels.
They are everything to me and my life revolves totally around them and what I can do
to see to their care and happiness.
They are the main characters in a children's book I have recently submitted for publishing. I can't tell you how much happiness I get from writing stories about them.

    I have a website, besides this blog, that I have posted some of my material on. The writing isn't hard for me. To paraphrase Descarte; "I write, therefore I am..." I write in my head all day, a big part of the day anyway (I can't help it - all my thoughts are dramatized and phrased for the page) and I try to put it down every couple of days. The hard part is entering it into the sites to share with others. But I'm getting the hang of it.
    I wish that I could just sit here and spew it all out for you here. I know you would enjoy the read. But I have to be concerned about the business ends as well as the artistic ends, so I can't just give it away.
I have one short story ("Almost Dead") on Triggerstreet.com and that is getting fair to very good reviews. Getting ready to post another ("My Best Friend Pain") there soon.
    I am waiting to hear back from a publisher regarding the children's book ("The Truth About Monsters"). My fingers are crossed for a deal.
    I have just begun this blog and I have to learn how to "get it out there."
If you read this, please leave a comment and let me know someone is seeing it.
Oh...you can go to the site (still building) http://scottsdaleonlinereadingroom.yolasite.com/ to read some of the beginnings of my writing.
