It’s a necessary evil when I want to buy photography equip and luckily I’ve had no problems with that so far (touch wood). but when I buy other stuff that I don’t really need I get angry with myself. I also was taken advantage of a couple of times-money sent but nothing received or the item wasn’t as described, and ebay really offers no real recourse.

Who does everybody get to read your work? I have a heck of a time cornering people to either sit and listen as I read or read it themselves when I email it to them.
The difficult thing is putting down on paper all the dreams that pop up during the night and make apparently good story ideas. I have to wake up in the night and jot this stuff down or by morning it all goes away. I am good at the dialogue but description is very challenging. It drives me crazy.
I am pleased that I have written a handful of short stories all in a couple of months. Unfortunately the readers for them would be considered a narrow market. It’s a specific subject. But the point is that I ACTUALLY completed them. Yeah, it might not be the best work on the planet but at least I finally accomplished something. When I was young, I would start stories and never finish them unless it was for an assignment or something. This time, it’s all for me.
