I don't believe in that but similar to having an opinion on a movie, us readers have opinions on books. … Continue reading Should Book Reviewers be Censored?

Over the weekend something happened, that something that always happens. I feel hopeless, incompetent and I want to discard this entire story. Not even midway in each … Continue reading Every Story Has A Reader| Writing Fiction
