Unashamed Writing

Authentic writing from the gut - the studio of a self-taught writer


This is a writer’s studio – a messy place with plenty of bloody awful first drafts, unfinished projects, self-pity parties, and the occasional gem.

Unless you are:

  • a fellow writer in search of an ego boost,
  • a family member trying to keep up with my writing and avoid awkward holiday dinners guilt, or
  • a biographer interested in my writing journey (it never hurts to dream big,)

you will be bored browsing around.

If you want better reads, I recommend the blogs I linked to in the sidebar. Also, there is my own writer’s gallery, at adaireland.com. It’s where I post the writing I’ve edited many times over in an attempt to get it as close as possible to the feelings and images I wanted it to convey in the first place.

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out.”

– Stephen King

Thank you for stopping by. If you don’t mind staying around, here’s a preview of what’s waiting … a dark tunnel with a light at the end of it.
