This is a blog about writing, including my own efforts and of those for whom I have an interest. It will be my scratchpad, a place to contain my thoughts, samples of my work, and with luck, a bit about where to find some of my published pieces. Postings won't be limited to any particular form or genre, and there may be topics other than writing from time to time, but I'll try to keep it somewhat relevant.
I'll also have links to other writers, and those working hard to become writers, I've come to know. There are some really good people out there, and even if they aren't famous they're having a lot of fun trying. Maybe you're one of them.
As for myself, I'm just a poet that dabbles in fiction, occasionally straying completely off-course into song writing and the visual arts. Please don't ask me to dance, however. It's for your own safety.
I couldn't give a proper explanation of how poetry became such a part of my life. Hated it in school. But here I am, trying to make words rhyme. Or not, depending upon my mood.
As a side note, in real life I write code for computers. It seldom rhymes, and when it does it doesn't work very well. Keep that in mind if you're looking for a career.
That really covers everything there is to say about why this blog exists. And whether you've found this blog because you also have an interest in writing or you've stumbled blindly onto here and are wondering what it's all about, you're welcome to look around and see if anything catches your eye - or your mind. So, stop by again, maybe even pass along a comment or two about what you like - or don't like. All will be greatly appreciated!
