    1. Hey, Steve. Sorry for the late response, but as you might have seen in my latest blog post, it has been a strange time lately. Having said that, I’m happy to hear you’re writing again. Regardless of whatever success or lack of success I have, I always try to remember how beneficial the act of writing is. It’s a great thing for the mind and the soul. Have a good one!


  2. I understand the lateness no matter what step (father/mother) means to you they were still there during your growth stage, you have strong feelings one way or another. As far as my writing success (or yours) I agree with the piece of mind you have during the process, I can’t expect much but we do this for our own reasons, I have so much to give I hope for something, even a nice side (paying) hobby would be nice, the daily struggle of professional writing is more than I care to take on right now, having heard about Brian Keene struggles and divorce because of it, is too much for me. Thanks for the great advice and insight from a published genius writer.
