Writing is a solitary occupation, and yet it is among the most social of endeavors. While the writer works alone, the words produced are sent out to the world in the hope of finding an audience. There is a kind of madness that all writers share, especially those who have not yet found their audience. The work proceeds, buoyed often by nothing more than determination and ideas. A. G. Moore writes books, stories, blogs, tweets, essays. She finds the exercise of framing a thought carefully to be a medium for intellectual growth and personal understanding.

When you're a child and you make up stories, you're called a "liar". When you're an adult and you make up stories, you're called an "Author". I never realized I had a talent for making up interesting tales, but I should have. All the telling signs were present early on. As a child, I had little action figures from various kid television shows. Like most little boys, I divided the figures into good guys and bad guys and they figured out ways to defeat the other during the course of an afternoon. The clue that I never picked up on was the fact that I had a third side that played the, so called, good guys and bad guys against each other. The conflicts didn't last for one afternoon. They typically lasted about 3 da ... read more
