~ Notebook #11 ~ When you're looking to reincorporate lean muscle to your prose and you turn to the maestros of the minimalist, clean, no frills, straight-to-the-point (and straight-to-the-heart) narrative technique. I have a tendency in daily speech and writing to use a lot of complex sentences (and parenthetical asides) and when I'm not mindful … Continue reading Brother, Can You Spare Some Prose?
~ Notebook #10 ~ bibliophile - a person who loves or collects books. bookworm - a person devoted to reading or studying. Guilty as charged.

Hooten. Finally actual scripting had … Continue reading Notebook 7 | The Wayward Mind
