    This is a very short post indeed so true regarding on the three things we should know before starting to write an essay. I think it will be more a good idea if you will add some details on those three things

    I have been authoring books since 1979 and one PhD thesis and I must say, I often sit before my keyboard and the words simply flow without plan,prep or request. My mind is full of stories, most untold, unwritten and never to see the page of a book, but writing for me is a relaxation and a fun thing to do. I love it. I have had book on the market for years and there will be a five book series, already written and through edit out before late Spring of 2009. Two are published, two before Christmas and a laggard of love which is the one for early next year. I could never write to an outline, a theme or at some-one’s insistence. It must be natural, free flowing and from my subconscious to hard copy. Thanks for listening. I might add, it is good for people to write and leave it one way or the other for future generation. Books are good, but so are diary’s. There well be someone about one-hundred years from now who will wonder what made you tick. Your great grandchildren.

    My paradise series has gotten off to a good start. The two books mentioned in my previous post are well on their way and I am happy to say, I am enjoying the comments and reviews.

    What am I writing about? Fiction. My story is about a young man called back to his genetic heritage by a mysterious calling. A book in the next series will explain that and it will no longer be a mystery, but hey, I have to keep a few hangers around.

    Who am I writing for? My intended audience is geared for the young person looking for an easy read of adventure and mystery with a little touch of believability. I am also writing for my great, great grand kids so they might know who plowed the ground before them.

    Why am I writing? First and foremost, I love the work and would do it whether or not I got paid. Secondly, I want to encourage young people to read as much as they can. Not only does this improve reading skills and comprehension, but it develops the imagination and offers some entertainment along the way.

    Only three small questions, but without answers on them we can write anything, they are really very important.
