Writing Experience

At one time I was a street addict addicted to alcohol and cocaine. Addiction leads to a dark place in the corner of the mind. Eventually there will come a time when addicts have a choice, get sober or die. I opted for sobriety.

I started writing 2005 and committed to my developement in 2007 when it became apparent that I had some talent (see Two Cats On The Hill 2006). From that point on I spent years writing, examining and editing my own work. Some schooling assisted in the analysis of composition which will benefit any writer. 

The source of my writing comes from the darkness of the mind that was exposed through addiction and recovery. And what a great source it is for I've yet to see the bottom of that dark well, or the end of infinite light!

Currently working on Twinkle Twinkle (Booksie), The Confession Book II, and a compilation of short stories. 

If you like whay you've read pass it on. The trickling effect invoked.
