There’s nothing worse than a writer who doesn’t write. Well, actually there are many things worse than that, but you get the point. Organizing your thoughts to produce creative work can be a daunting task. The reason, I believe, is because to be a great writer one must be truly authentic. Raw. Genuine. Relatable. Able to share your truth in a way that your audience can connect on a deeper level. You have to be able to communicate the cacophony of words that invade your mind constantly and search for the meaning underneath it all.
Supporting those many thoughts are feelings. Emotions. That means joy and pain and all the feelings associated with them. Sometimes they get tangled. Writing is a way to sort them out. Sometimes the only way. I am many things. But one thing is sure – I’m a writer through and through and down to my bones. It’s how I make sense of life and this messed up crazy beautiful human experience in this world. I don’t just simply want to write, I have to write! I suppose any artist or creative type is compelled in the same way.
This blog is long overdue, but I’m a firm believer that everything happens precisely when it’s supposed to. Here I will explore my journey through poetry, prose, essays….basically whatever I feel like writing at the moment. So if you found this little site out of all the interesting, entertaining, and other well established blogs in the blogosphere, welcome! I hope you frequently visit and enjoy this journey of exploration with me.
