A Dozen Dumpster Books, God’s Inspiration to Create

In my eyes, being a writer is being an artist. Creativity and inspiration must flow when writing from the heart. I have to admit that 2019 has been full of difficult adjustments.

What I would like to do with this blog at this time is create some series of intentions that I can expand on in multiple subjects with each entry.
