“To write: To throw out opinions, ideas, and beliefs onto society’s chopping block for all to read, see, and observe – the collective conscience and cultural bookshelf.”
I’ve written on and off over the years. I live in the hills of East Tennessee, just outside Knoxville, where the mountains actually do smoke from time to time. There is often a flurry to a blizzard of writing inspiration around here.
I treat fiction writing like a used car salesman might treat a ridiculous sales quota – meet it or be burned at the stake. Okay, that’s just ridiculous.
