Some of the writers that inspire me are Eggers, Vonnegut, Hemingway, Bukowski, to name but a few, though I believe music has probably influenced me just as much... and the Simpson's... and maybe even sitting down.

While my productivity may suggest otherwise, I am always writing to some degree; be it observation or contemplation, part of me is taking it in and filing it away.

On that note, if I had to sum up my writing in one word, it would be, effort. Not only because of the obvious, but because it is across the board in terms of life, love, walking forward: all of these things, and so much more, are that much better with just a bit of it.
We should be in a campaign for common sense with Effort as our prime candidate. In fact, I am going to put it on shirts, just so I can remove it from the tip of my tongue.

I would like to thank you for your effort, may it bring you back, and keep you well.

Best regards, Mark

Painting Shadows is a story's story, a writer's story - a story so stripped down many lines sound like quotes. The book challenges the reader to go somewhere deeper, to be submerged in the narrator's think tank of a journey. Painting Shadows is a stark read about ignorance and awareness, and the many questions and observations that fall between them.

If it is the thought that counts; these are rough notes to the perfect love letter.
