To you Daniel, keep that passion, never let no one try to take it away or discourage you. Ther will be times when they will say you are strange but you are just special in Gods eyes. He gave you the gift to share with others to help someone else. So if you need to chat sometimes I'm here, let the LORD lead you in all that you do
Hi, Daniel. It's good to meet you on the line. I lived in Indianapolis in 2001 & '02, when I was the Indiana Pacers reporter for The Indianapolis Star. Let me know when Brothers Stand Strong will be published. Write on!
Foremost, I hasten to apologize for mine belated comments. I am guilty, no doubt, of being negligent in many zones that needs be attended to. Indeed, if ever one excuses themselves of an offense they automatically accuse themselves of a manifest fault. Howsoever, Daniel, I am pleased to read something of your young voice and vision. You are most definitely correct, young man, about young adults having a story to tell. That story will undoubtedly reveal a pecular process that has landed so many of Us on the desolate shores of actual demetia. The thing is that these stories, in their unmolested vent of "Truth and Reality," are far too often caught up on the turbid tides of popular opinions. These stories might be personal, heart-felt, and well written by a gifted mind, and, yet, if these stories abide by the lierary dictates of this dying generation, then, what will happen is that the young story teller, and whatever faction that he has given himself to, will be the only one's benefiting. What I am saying here is that it is supremely important to keep it real and not necessarily correct. It is not wise to focus on mere applaud, materialism, or acceptance. The thought of keeping it real takes root in the actual facts of a matter as pitted against what only appears to be real and clever of words. It ain't about entertaining - no! not for a Ture Scribe. Never the less, you have embraced a good thing - keep writing!
Nice to meet you. What a blessing it is whenever I meet youth who love to read and write! Don't ever lose the passion and make it a goal to publish. The African-American Literary world awaits your entry. You are already off to a great and positive start in life. Stay blessed and connected...

Thanks I appreciate that. I try to write things that are motivational, self-help, informal...non-fictional types. Not only is it more interesting to me but if it will help someone else, I'm all for it.
