I have two passions in life. My children and my writing.

I often combine the two.

All the time. From school essays to poetry to my book to my own life, passion is something that I become to indulged in. Its something I can't resist. Its something that breathes within me. Especially when I am writing, the passion burns like a fire that can never be extinguished and that is how I get caught in the moment and don't want to let it go. Whenever I am writing a scene in my book that I believe so much in, I can't let it end because I don't want it to leave my fingers and dissapear into the first draft pages. I want to remain living in it always.

Before I start getting too passionate about passion, I will end it with a soft note.

An artist is born with a passion to create what they see as beautiful. This is why a writer never stops writing. Their passion for beauty can be found in every word.
My heart is my totem, a blackened beating taunt that soaks the Page with its prevail. Its blood becomes my ink as I stab the Pen into it. I heave forward with my hollow chest, entranced in my decay, sorry to say, that I am a writer of Darkness now.
