NEWSFLASH: I’m verifiable insane.

Just look at how long it took me to get this post up! Three hours of fighting with HTML code, beating my head against the computer, and crying, and all it needed was a little button…I’m technologically challenged, I know. Noob status: verified.


Then again, I think anyone who’s a writer has to have at least a mild case of insanity. Think about it. We all have split personalities, sometimes multiple personalities. (It gets annoying when my characters demand a storyline…) We all have our boughts of artistic depression. Many of us have anxiety issues, more of us have anger issues (see previous post). Some of us are in denial, and I know I have some serious scars from my childhood. We all hear voices. SOme of us have been abducted by aliens. Some of us are slightly brain dead. We’re all crazy!

That said, I decided to let my inner psychopath out. The ever-lovely held a contest in March for 30 Days of Diary entries and I’ve entered a diary of my own in it. If you can wade through the insanity and understand the meaning, you are one of the crazies, too. I would be honored to have you read it (and if you don’t, I will hunt you down and make you wish you had….I really want that iPad!) Be careful not to miss the twist at the end. Hopefully it makes you think. If it doesn’t, then the voices lied to me…


About S. G. Ricketts

I am a dreamer. This page holds all of the dreams and desires and hopes and wishes of the first of my two dreams: to share my imagination with the world. For those of you who have read a book or written a book, these stories are not merely words on a page. They are living, breathing creatures, worlds so compellingly real that you can smell the sweat and feel the rain. This is what I want to share ...with all of you. Yes, becoming rich and famous would be fabulous. I won't deny that. However, it would be so much more satisfying to see my book in the hands of someone on the bus, hear my book talked about at a restaurant, see a cluster of fan-art. I want to inspire the mind to imagine different worlds and different situations. If I can achieve that, I will have achieved my dream.
