Can't decide if I find my over-imagination stupid, unnecessary, annoying or all of the above spring-rolled together with some other terms which my just-woken-up mind is too lazy to think of. But I guess I'm just another writer with more mind on her … Continue reading The eccentric writer (12) – All that drama over a fall down the stairs
I love gore. I love war and well-written fight scenes.
