I am a life long learner. I am currently working on my Masters in Biblical Theology.
Along with term papers, I also write short stories and eventually books. I also take classes through the Writer's University online.
Visual Thesaurus helps me to keep my writing varied and complex, utilizing multi-syllabic words as often as possible. I find it sad and rather insulting that the average periodical must be written at the 4th grade reading level. This needs to be addressed and righted, soon!
My motto is: "The only life worth living is the one you're passionate about!" -so find your passion and live it!
