Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

Writing is a lot like applying makeup; sometimes less is more and sometimes you can't have enough. Lines, curves, shades, and shadows emerge from the creases and corners to produce a brilliant balance of beauty.

A pallet of color-tinted words can take the writer, or reader, to faraway countries, bustling cities, paradise islands, or to back wood forests where perhaps home-spun history has become legend.

A bristly brush inside the minds of characters who might, or might not be, real could bring a crimson blush or a heart-warming laugh. Brazen red lips, ebony curls, jade green eyes...which do you prefer? Pardon me while I powder my nose.

I take that as such a great compliment coming from you, my friend!

I must admit I have never thought of it in those terms, but I can make the leap into your way of thinking and appreciate what you mean. Wouldn't like to see the way I would apply make-up if the process I use to write has anything to do with it! Just kidding. All Art has similarities and applying make-up is no different.

Power to your pen, or should I say bristly brush.
