Who has lit your flame?

Yes, I know, the grammar's a bit flubbed. 

I think I owe that flame to quite a few people over the last 45 years. From the fifth grade teacher who had our class write legends explaining natural phenomena as part of a history lesson, to the sophomore literature teacher who gave us everything from the Wizard of Oz to the Great Gatsby to read, to the professor who asked if I had always written with grace...

I owe my "spark" to dozens of influences.

Where does yours come from?

  1. I owe my 'spark' to a couple of fantastic authors (I will speak no names lol!), but they know who they both are. With some fantastic stories, and some wonderful words of inspiration, they both have spurred me on to continue writing what I want to write!

    Thanks to those 2 ladies!



Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
