I took a moment to be alone with her: I kissed her now lifeless forehead, and paused as I thought briefly on how while her troubles were mercifully over our lives going forward would never be the same...
I HATE talking politics on here. However, there are those moments in our lives when SOME things MUST be made ABSOLUTELY clear.
Now, back to books...
Maybe as a consequence of my stance I don't attract quite as many readers overall. I don't care. My conscience is clear.
Wait a minute? Hold it? None of those are "writing manuals?"
Uh, in fact, they are THE BEST WRITING "MANUALS."

Gee, it's good I have nothing to hide from you guys... LOL!
