"Hope strengthens. Fear kills" I have just started writing after raising my daughter and building and devoting myself to building a solid marriage of 30 years. I have decided that it is time to do something that I dreamed of doing all my life - writing. I want to write the stories that I have thought about for many years, but I really do not know how to start. Ann Rice said that if you want to be a writer, then write. This is my dream and goal .
