To me, writing is a light, at the end of the lonely black cave, a window worth living for; pure opportunity. And to write, you need encouragement, something that shows you’re not alone with this feeling, this picture painted in your mind. You need a way to get advice, help, something that boosts you forward, and keeps you from frustration. I have been given all of these necessities to writing, all in four plain, simple words. Red, Oak, Young, Writers. It has ignited and kept that light at the end of the tunnel burning. Now it can never burn out…
