About

Okay, the first thing you need to know about me, is: I AM NOT A WRITER!  :P   I have a basic high school education, and no special training in the art of writing...so please DON'T critique my writing, (I already know it needs work)   If you would like, SUGGEST something that would help make it more professional....on second thought, DON"T!  You will probably just end up irritating me.

Think of me as a STORYTELLER!  I do enjoy writing and getting the ideas out of my head, and onto paper.  It's funny, reading was never one of my interests, until I started to write my ideas down.  I would read, re-read, and edit, and then read again, until I finally had what I thought was good enough.  But  I am my own worst enemy...I read something I write and I think it sucks, but other people like it... I second guess myself a lot, should I add this, change that, leave it alone...Anyways...I ramble sometimes too.  What I would really like is for my stories to be told on the big screen... it would be awesome just to see something I thought of in a movie.  Anyways, thanks for checking out my profile, and leave comments on my stories...Thanks, Mike

Twas the morning of Christmas, and all through Jon's head, flashed three letter words, as he laid in the bed.  Jon on his left side, his wife on her right, both set their alarm clocks the previous n...

It is not "WAS".  The word has nothing to do with the story.  There is very minor math involved.  Use all the clues within the poem to solve.  The title is your first clue.
