"Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are. Bertolt Brecht" Kitchener, ON I've been writing since, well, a long time. Mostly poetry, and I've recently found a whole slew of infantile poems I wrote while I thought the world hated me (high school). Now that I know the world hates me, I'm finding myself more verbose, and reaching into my wordy head to figure out how to write short stories. I've started to write my first novel 3 times now, without success, and am only recently coming out of the longest writer's block I've ever had (2+ years). Glad I found this site, really hope you enjoy what I have to say, and am very very very open to suggestions, comments, and critiques. Hope to get to know some of / all of you along the way as well.
