"I like a view but I like to sit with my back turned to it." - Gertrude Stein I study writing at the Creative and Performing Arts High School of Philadelphia. I write, not to entertain, but to teach and learn. The art is more than enjoyment, it is pure thought at its most raw form. The only difference between me and most other writers is that I mine my thoughts and refine them into pure steel; I am a blacksmith of words. As a writer, are you a miner or a blacksmith?
