This blog is run by B D Bechtle, an aspiring novelist. The writer's fate hangs in the balance. His heart desires only the path of an author, rugged and perilous as the terrain may be. Earnestly, he yearns to appeal to and entertain the masses with his fiction, striving to find meaning within his food encrusted keyboard. His blood (and Chai) fueled ambition propels him ever skyward. Will his dream reach reality? Or will it be crushed by it? Who knows? This is merely lighthearted melodrama. Enjoy.
