I had the chance to write an article for an online magazine and get paid for it too so I took it. I'll have more on the "The Touch" later tonight. $75 for a 2200 word article? Any day of the week boys and girls... any day of the week! Reminds me of my college years... term papers for cash. Ahhhh...... Sign in to see full entry.

Just A Song Before I Post...

I like the concept behind this next story but I'm not sure how fast this one will progress and I can't 100% promise you that I may not finish it like I normally do.
