Follow the Pen...

Following the pen is the best way I have found to describe what I love about writing.

I come up with an idea, a concept, but not necessarily have an end state in mind. I just start with that concept and build from there following the pen to see where it takes me. I enjoy letting the pen lead and I make sure I don't hinder its path to let its most creative ink flow.

I added Follow the Pen... to because I wanted to come up with a fast and easy way for someone to read a selection and provide their thoughts and feedback.  I value your, the reader's, time so have made it fast and easy, please review the 5 minute process below...

  1. Click the link at the bottom to take you to the "Follow the Pen..." section. 
  2. Scroll through to read each brief story behind the story. (less than a minute)
  3. Click its accompanying image to read the digital short (opens in a separate window and takes 3 minutes tops to read)
  4. Close that window to return then click the Rate Your Read button and fill out the completely optional and short form. If you are in a hurry, ignore all input fields and simply select your rating in the corresponding drop-down and submit...(less than a minute)

The digital stories are grouped in sections of three with a Rate Your Read button at the bottom for each corresponding section. If you read all three it is easy to submit your ratings for them all in one form, but even if you just read one, select your rating for that one and's that easy!

If you have the time and desire, please share your thoughts, questions and/or ideas on what you read. I'd love to read them.

Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy what you read.
