I write because the distance between my hand and heart is too fast to be remembered and must be recorded instead.
"Regular conversation is structurally strange, isn't it?" I find it interesting. It says much more than it lets on, and in between all those words are so many roads with loads of riders, all with amazing stories to tell.
Ophelia--it's an honor to have you with us. Welcome to Fictionaut!
Welcome! Glad you are here. And a book coming out soon. How exciting. Congratulations.
