    I see that you have an impressive writing history, Don.  What stirred the writer within?

    Thanks, lorlie.

    The writer has always been there. But writer's block really stunted my development over the years. Except in fits and starts, it really wasn't until a few months ago that the writer in me wanted out again.

    I've always been philosophical and driven by light. By that I mean that I use light imagery to fall into the white space as I start to write something.  I've always been introspective and watchful.

    I love to people watch, and to listen to conversations and cadence. It was a really good way for me to learn how to write dialogue.

    As far as what stirred the writer within...well.. I have mild CP and, as such, physical activity wasn't always the easiest thing to engage in, but I needed another outlet. 

    To begin with, my outlet was reading, and reading Stephen King's "IT" during the Summer of 1985 made me want to write.
