                                       In these economic times we can no longer rely on the external structures we used to:
                                       the stock market and banking systems are crumbling, the automotive industry and
                                       housing markets are falling apart. When all else fails, turn within. People claim that

                                                    According to Ernest Hemingway, "a writer should create living
                                                    people; people, not characters. A character is a caricature." But

                                                    imbue characters with truth and give them their own unique
                                                    voices? You begin by lending them your own truths and
