#Quoted: If a writer stops observing…

What exists if not our observation? Sometimes, mindful, but most times, just mindless observations. Tying our stories to the places we've been, the conversations we've eavesdropped on, the queer faces we've seen, the secrets we've stepped on. That's the birth-ground to our stories.

#Quoted: Write everyday, line by line…

The worst thing that can happen to anybody is giving up on a dream or ambition from the fear of rejection. And yet, as I write this down, I think of time that awaits me when my book is finally done. That's when those damn talons of fear grip me, choking me, and there is... Continue Reading →
