I write because I cannot not write.
Steve Harvey said it best when he was talking to Jerry Seinfeld in an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. To paraphrase, if you have to take a class to learn how to write, then you are in the wrong profession. Go write. If you have a story, it will write itself.(less)

“How can you forgive so easily?” Megan asked softly. “If Hayrald did not love me, it would be harder. But he does, and that makes up for most things.” Megan”
J.D. Lakey, Black Bead

“Magic was merely the unknown, a wild thing undefined by logic or reason. By that thinking, surely she was not Bad Luck, but Good, undefined.”
J D Lakey, Black Bead

“What did you learn, Little Father?” Cheobawn asked, catching her breath. The boy scowled at her. “It was not a fair fight. Your magic was stronger than mine.” Cheobawn snorted and jabbed him in the chest with the end of one of her sticks. The boy flinched. “Try again. You lost before you even raised your sticks. Do you know why?” she asked. The boy stared at her sullenly. “Because you forgot that without this black bead in my omeh, I am a Little Mother just like any other Little Mother, flesh and bone, just as you are. Fight the man, not the illusion.”
J.D. Lakey, Storm Child
