    Smart dude.

    What is this even supposed to mean? I think we have a serious comma problem here.

    Food for thought. Nice find, Keith.

    Because we do draw on our own experiences, fears, jubilations, I often wonder if I am revealing too much of myself in my writing. Then I have to shove those feelings aside and say, "so what!" (So that wasn't as poetic as I wanted it to be. In martin's words, "kiss this" lol)

    I don't know if you more experienced writers suffer from this, but this newbie certainly does.
