"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time." Jack London I am an English teacher with a passion for creative writing. I have many unfinished novels and unpublished short texts. I am planning to start an online business, offering proof reading services - writingguru.co.nz - it isn't functional yet though! My blog is writing2guru.wordpress.com.
