What about getting back to writing..."


Hi PD, I completely agree! It's very hard to write and read for me too, but many seem to be doing it just fine. Hmm..

What about getting back to writing fiction after writing non-fiction. An even bigger dilemma!! To be serious; I find it difficult to read anything when I'm writing, which is most of the time. Editing mode muscles in!! I'm even dreaming new stories.


James Hi Rashad. Thanks for friending.


Richard Hello, Rashad! Happy New Year!


Richard Hello, Rashad! Hope your research, writing and reading are all going well.


Rashad Pharaon Can't wait to finish reading this non-fiction so I can get back to writing. Yeah, yeah, I know. Now you're going to tell me that I can do both ;)
