"The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov" I'm a writer from way back. I love to write, to create worlds and people them with thinking, feeling beings. I love to mix them up and see what will happen. I was brought onto the site by a long time friend, Alshrim, who I was very blessed to write with back when he had a play-by-post board named Astelbania. Some of my best and worst moments in writing were on that board with one constant...Al. The man would give me critical views of my writing and gently suggest improvements and mix it all with praise and encouragement. I really grew as a writer and artist while writing with him and I'm so glad to be able to do so again.
