What inspires me?

The world is inspiration for a writer. Writing is: a way of life; a means of creation limited only by one's imagination and inhibition; an art to shape a world and its problems down to every last detail; a path to open the mind to the scope of possibility; a way to express and discover yourself through the trial and error of characters and ideas. Every word of every line matters, every syllable counts, and every idea can be said with the right words. facebook: twitter: Other Major Influences: Jean-Paul Sartre, Baruch de Spinoza, J.K.
