A while ago I was asked to write a 5 word memoir. The mere idea of this was mind blowing. After all, how could I wrap up my whole life in 5 words? Granted I'd only lived for 17 years and some months, my life is - Good Lord willing - far from over. But still, 17 years is hard to wrap up in 5 words... not to mention the fact that I'd changed so much in those 17 years.
After much struggling - melding 5 different verbs together - trying to think of cool phrases - and banging my head against the top of my desk - I came up with something I was quite pleased with.
Who Am I? A Writer.
At a glance, it seems rather simple. But, when I look at it, think about it, I see so much more. Think - I am seventeen years old. My ... read more

I write under several personas - Blake Strong being the "dirty minded" one.
I d no not see erotica being any different from any other form of writing - but it has been tagged as undesirable for a few reasons:
The first is because there are people who don't know the difference between literary pornography and erotica - the difference is the same as the difference between a naked beauty and a closeup of her genitals - if the difference is not obvious to you, I will not be able to explain it to you.
The second problem is that almost every idiot with access to a keyboard thinks he or she can write, thinks writing erotica is easy and that whatever he or she has to say will captivate the audience. Unfortunately th ... read more

These days, I spend most of my days working--which I am blessed to labor with my wife, or I'd hardly get to see her! After that, I get a small smidgen of time that divides between writing and learning self-sufficiency.
