Why buy me a beer?

If I were a musician, I could take my guitar or oboe or didgeridoo down to the Saturday Market and play and sing for you. You might applaud my feeble attempts and throw some spare change into the coffee can at my feet.

If I made triple scented candles from 100% natural, environmentally friendly, USA grown soy beans, then I might put up a website and for ten dollars sell you some light to brighten a dark, winter's night.

But I'm a writer. I formulate words into thoughts and images and impressions and if I'm really lucky, when I put pen to paper, they will turn into sentences and paragraphs and finally a story. So if my words engage or entertain you, then support my endeavors.

My empty coffee can is at your feet.
