"Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay here." I feel like a lot of people on this website are people who feel like it is their calling to be a writer or an aspiring author. I have no connection to feelings of such sort. I simply enjoy writing short stories to relief stress. I am not a stickler on proper writing styles and I sometimes put commas in places that they shouldn't be, but I love a good story. I adore reading and when I can't be reading, writing comes in close second to what I would prefer to be doing.
