Processing Process

(Admin suggested I put this up as a blog post.  This was originally posted on my personal blog, blogyinyang.com, on April 22, 2015.) Everything we do has a process. How you get ready for work. How you cook a meal. How you get dressed. Your process may not be like mine, or anyone else’s. In “All in the Family” Archie debated with Michael sock, sock, shoe, shoe, while Michael preferred sock, shoe, sock, shoe. We all have a process. For me it is sock, sock, pants, shoe, shoe. That way I don’t have to roll up my pants to put on my socks and shoes, and then roll down my pant legs, possibly rolling down my socks. When it comes to little things, the process, such as socks and shoes, may not be that important, but I guarantee if you switch them up your day will feel a bit weird. You...

Why do we write?

Hello fellow wielders of the pen, or key board as it were, I wanted to to take Monica Brinkman`s advice and say a few words here on the site. First off, I love the site. I think it has a great potential for authors, writers, and readers to intermingle, network, and just share things with one another. I like the feel of this site; meaning, it has a general friendliness that is not often found on the internet in other writing communities. And finally, I have been welcomed by members here--to include Monica--with open arms.  So, what about my title of "why do we write?" Well, I wanted to share my personal thoughts about those of us who choose to expose our innermost thoughts, our souls, our neurosis or personal baggage to the world; frankly, I have no damn clue why we do this *smiling*. It seems to be innate, we are born with this--this...
