"And all writing is creating or spinning dreams for other people so they won't have to bother doing it themselves." My name is Riss, I'm 50 yrs. old, and after 30 yrs. of THINKING about writing, I finally decided to let the beast out. I don't even know if I'm a GOOD writer, but I know this: When I'm writing, the whole world except for the one I'm creating, disappears for a while. The stress of poverty, addiction recovery, of being a single mom, of surviving just about everything there is to survive, including the big C. It all just goes away until there's nothing left except myself, a blank canvas, and the stories I hold inside.
