A Simple Credo...

1. When I have a pen in my hand, I am stronger.
2. When I write stories with a pen in my hand, my strength increases exponentially.
3. Anything that does not make me a better writer makes me weaker...or at least distracted.
4. The more I write, the difference between excellence and mediocrity becomes clearer.
5. If I don't put my stories in front of an audience, I am just a hobbyist.
6. Writer. Father. Husband. In that order.
7. This is the work I am meant to do. Do the work.
