It's not about publishing a book to the masses that makes it all worth-wild claims Dalton. It's about being 100% honest in those writings that truly count the most. It's not about being the best writer in the world because I am not even close to that, in fact I am not even a good writer states Dalton, because the truth is, I am the guy who might spell some words wrong or have comma's, periods and other things that should be in certain places not in those places.  But it also shows people that in this day and age, you can just do it and be happy with yourself for doing it. States Doc, would you rather have someone write 100% perfect, but Bull S_ _ _ you all the way through the story, or someone who is 100% honest with you and tells that story straight from their heart but yet, not that perfect. If I had to describe myself, I would say, I am that guy who stumbles through his words, so he can make it through is day's.

I say just that in this book and a lot more states Dalton. I am 100% up-front and honest about my writings and tell people that I am not here to be that perfect writer. Within the first few pages I let them know who I am and what this is all about. Truthfully, I don't want to be perfect, but I do want to be honest in what I write. I want folks to understand that my words come straight from my heart. Take note, let everyone else be perfect states Doc, I have suffer greatly from depression/ bi-polar for over 20 years and poetry and writing has saved my life and when all is said and done, even if I don't seem it, I am happy just being me and it took me a hell of a long time to get to this point in my life. I think I will just hang here for a while and be safe and at peace. Feel free to join me if you like. Just make sure to bring a good cup of coffee, that's all I ask.
Writing has become a very important part of Doc's life and it doesn't matter to him if it's writing a book or if it's just sitting down and putting pen to paper for a poem. To take that a step farther, it doesn't matter to him if it's something that he might publish  or if it's personal and just for him. Writing is writing and it's relaxing states Doc. It takes me to places within my mind that I might not ever imagined going to, and when all is said and done, it's a personal type of therapy that works for me and that's what counts in the end.
