I blog because I write. I am a published poet and journalist. I have written in various genres: television, novel, short story, web content, and blog. Occasionally, I proofread manuscripts. There is nothing related to words that I shy away from. It is my life and the nucleus of my being. I have tried to break this habit, but I keep coming back. I suppose that of all the compulsive urges I could have, this is the lesser of the other evils.
