Another reason I love this place - The Writers

I was just assigned this local guy to interview, and I thought you all might find his story fascinating.

He's a fellow writer, Murray Dunlap, and in 2008, he nearly died in a car accident. He suffered a severe head injury but he's still writing. You can read about other times he nearly died at this link: (Link)

This is the link to his website, where you can learn more about him and what happened: (Link)

Have a great weekend, guys!

Thank you for the link- I will be looking into it this weekend. Just wanted to stop by and say Hello- I'm slowly getting back on my feet. Sorry I've missed so many of your post. But I'm working to get around to everyone again. I only have a week left before most my commenting stops...LOL with NaNo on my plate I'm rearranging how I blog. :) Have a great day!

You're welcome, guys, and as I've replied to most, it's so great what a supportive community we have here. It's tough to be a writer *without* major, life-changing catastrophes!

Murray's still writing for publication--I'll update after our interview~ :o) <3

Very inspiring. I like to read about overcomers. They have a message to tell the world for those willing to take the time and listen.
