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. In addition, it doesn't matter to him if it's something that he might publish in someway 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.
It's not about publishing a book to the masses that makes it all worth-wild claims America's Simple Man. 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 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. Besides claims Doc, would you rather have someone write 100% perfect, but B.S. you all the way through the story, or someone who is 100% honest with you and tells it straight from their heart but yet, not that perfect.
I say just that in my books say's Dalton, I am 100% up-front and honest about my writings and tell people that I am not here to be that perfect writer. I tell them within the first few pages that I am not perfect, never don't claim to be and truthfully, really don't want to be. I do tell them that I am honest and that my words comes from deep down inside. There's No perfect person here. Let everyone else be perfect, I am happy just being me.
You do not need to agree with me on different things I write because it's OK to disagree. But it is within that disagreement, that you can say to yourself, I may not agree with him, but the one thing I know for sure is, he was being honest and truly felt that way. It's been said that, honesty is always the best policy.
After publishing "Stop Being Stuck on Stupid" (recently retire the book in 2015) he knew writing was what he truly enjoyed doing for a number of reasons and now his focus is on writing books that are in someway Spiritual - Motivational in Nature.
So be on the look-out for his two releases, "Old Dog's of the Whiskey Pie Trails and Sometimes I'm Not OK." There are more planned releases for 2018 in to 2019. So please, check back for new up-dates.
