I’ve been writing a short story for a friend. It was supposed to be a short story, but it’s kinda turned into a 4 part story.

The truth is, I love to write. I love the process of developing a story and making it something that another person would want to read. I love the feel and the sound of the keys on my keyboard while I pound out my thoughts. I love watching someone get sucked into the story and wanting to read more. It’s an artists pride, is it not, when one’s work is admired and lauded.

Here I stand, almost afraid to take the next step into dedicating myself so wholly to one task. The opportunity sits there, waiting to be taken and I’m almost afraid that if I try something is going to go wrong and I’ll be left with my stories collecting dust on the shelf where they have been the past few years.

Everything I’ve desired with my heart has been discouraged. Don’t imagine that there is an exterior source. It’s all been me. I’ve never been good enough in my own eyes and have effectively crippled my own efforts. Singing, acting, art and now I’m fighting the urge to sabotage my desire to write stories.

Ah well…



  1. So, is Hurin any good?

    I love the graphic. I am so going to steal it.

  2. Children of Hurin is good. It’s a different story, but still very Lords of the Rings-ish.

    I think I’m going to try and get my hands on all his books! I’d like to know all the stories behind the characters. Like where Gandalf came from, who the Valar are and why Sauron has only one eye!

    There are some other graphics at satisfaction.com!

  3. Its good to see that you are a writer, nonetheless. Do not do what those graphics say you are doing …
