"Tell me, tell me what makes you think that you are invincible? I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure. Please don't tell me that I'm the only one that's vulnerable. Impossible." - Secondhand Serenade


No better place for a writer than a coffee shop. Three dollars for caffeine to last an hour or so. Change like that you can gather in a few days, and certainly every weekend. Day job, night job, spare-time job. Try to make it; hope you do. It's a lonely profession, one that I'm not fully in but not fully excluded from either. Writers have something to say, and something to do, and something to feel. I think, really, we just get so full sometimes that we explode onto paper or into a computer. It's a handicap, but sometimes something great comes out of it. It's that hope that makes us keep coming back for more three-dollar coffee and a place to combust.

For everyone who's ever gone someplace and hoped to write something great.
