I.Love.To.Write.

I worked deep into the night last night finishing the updated version of Dancing During the Storm. You are going to love it. I know. I love it. I literally had to cut the last story off because I was running out of space.  I had been promising this update for a year and I finally did it! It is so worth it!

I will be honest writing for me is like a relationship. Some days it is good and I love it more than anything, other days, I quit it and promise never to return. If it were a marriage, I would have divorced it a dozen times. Of course, we would get back together and promise to do right.

The thing that always brings me back is the story.  I tell God I am not doing this anymore. I am finished, done. God gives me a story so good I can’t wait to put it on paper.

I added three new stories to the book and took two stories away.  Dancing During the Storm is a collection of short stories. These are stories I have written over the course of my life. the first story I added is about justice or what is perceived as justice. Another is about the state of women and the third one was my first attempt to write from the point of view of a man.

As you read my work, I am sure you wonder where does this come from, and only the grace of God knows.  He inspires me and takes me step by step through the process.

During the month of September I will give you some insight into why I do what I do. I will tell you some stories. You may even learn some things. This year I will also share some of the influencers in my life. Looking forward to telling you the story of me.
