This website started out in May 15, 2015 and has been evolving and growing ever since.  This community is all about sharing experiences and being helpful and kind and insightful.

The articles are mostly written by myself with a smattering of guest posts and regularly interviews with authors.

The articles and interviews are helpful and nurture what I call my Dear Readers and if you are so inclined to be a Dear Writer.

This website is coming to terms with ourselves and growth and ever increasing knowledge.  I am a life long learner and my sources of inspiration are immense and diverse.

Thanks for viewing, reading and sharing.
Yours, David Alan Binder

So what compels me to be a writer?  My feelings and being in touch with them and using them to write down how I felt and dealt with various situations that happened to me in my life and a self help to heal and ease whatever torment or elation I was going through at the time.  Another influence was the Moody Blues, they struck a chord within me.

Just less than a year ago I read Jeff Goins headline on his site goinswriter.com which stated, "You Are a Writer (So Start Acting Like One)".  This gave me the permission to do what I had been born to do, to go ahead and take the plunge and start again for the thousandth time with the impetus to not stop.  (Sorta like quitting smoking in reverse.)  The thing is I never stopped writing what I had stopped was trying to get out there, to get published, to make it happen, to live the dream, to catch the rainbow.  Come run and catch rainbows with me and we can live happy and free and find the everlasting peace that comes from chasing (and maybe actually catching) it.  After all it is the journey that makes us who we are, we all get somewhere, maybe just not where or how we intended to end up.

Manuscript, whether your hands perform the action of scripting, hence manuscript from when all documents at one time were written, before the printing methodologies came into being.

Parchment, a work written on the skin of an animal or even possibly human in a culture now unknown.

Scribe your best work and pour your heart and soul into with flowing metaphors like a fountain splashing upon the medium of your choice.

Write as rain, cleansing your mind and anticipating the moisture feeding the minds of the world.

The Musician by David Alan Binder
He had gotten his first instrument as a child practically.  He played with it getting familiar with the nuances of how to make noise that was pleasing.  His parents relegated him to his room at times, or the garage, or at others to a nearby copse of trees not far from home but far enough that he could barely be heard, which was the best way for them to get through his learning process.  So as he became more adept he experimented sometimes failing miserably but comfortable that he was still learning and progressing.  Each failure represented getting closer to that perfection of sound that people wanted to hear and would eventually pay to hear.  He practiced getting better, honing his craft for by now he was becoming a craftsman.  One that understood the subtleties of the instrument.  Eventually he became so adept that he could not only tune the instrument on his own but replace parts that had worn to the point that they needed to be replaced.  He furthered his knowledge one day by taking the instrument completely apart then was able to reassemble it and got the satisfaction of knowing his instrument inside and out and thoroughly in tune with it.  It became a projection of himself, his persona, his extension of himself into anther atmosphere.

Now he plays on a stage with other musicians like him who had gone through similar processes until they became craftsmen,  They became masters of their playground and are in demand and people pay lots of money to hear them.

Become like them, hone your craft through hours of practice and know your instrument inside and out and be able to express yourself in ways that move yourself first then others.
