Favorite Quote:
"Write what you care about and understand. Writers should never try to outguess the marketplace in search of a salable idea; the simple truth is that all good books will eventually find a publisher if the writer tries hard enough, and a central secret to writing a good book is to write on that people like you will enjoy."
Richard North Patterson

They always tell stories of when I used to lay in your arms and sleep
They always say you have your father’s eyes
They always say I look like you
They always say I’m calm like you
They always say we’re night owls
I know they say a lot of things
I know I love movies like you do
I know I love food like you do
I know that even if as I’m growing up we’ll never drift apart
Because I know I’ll always need you.

I wanted to write a poem and my Mom suggested that I write about my Dad.
