I love to read books and poetry, along with writing them. What can be more fun than putting on paper stories you develop in your mind?
Although I've written stories for years, it's just recently that I decided to try self-publishing.

For the Love of Words

I love words and languages. If you're an avid reader, you know doubt love words too.  I signed up to receive a word a day from Word Genius   To my surprise, not only does the site send a word a day, but it also has games and deeper explanations.
