I write a mixture of things. Mostly what comes to mind. Passions. Right now the state of our union takes precedent in my thoughts and of my concerns.
Occasionally a romantic, but mainly a realist. Not much of a dreamer, I stay in today as much as possible. Too much of my life was pissed away straddling yesterday and tomorrow.
I have been told my writing is raw, in your face. I am basically, painfully honest. Not a good writer in any genre' but often hit a nerve. A terrible speller, as I am a bit dyslexic and nearly illiterate as far as proper grammer goes. I have learned a lot on Fanstory, but stay true to my voice.
Since I first found writing in 2003 it has morphed to become more simple, primitive maybe. Not given to lyrical or rhyming poetry as a rule, I can hit a beautiful cord by surprise. At times of crisis I find I now HAVE to write or burst. It is my therapy, my salve and maybe even my salvation.
Thank you for your interest and patience. LOL
ps: This is windy for me. I was once called, "The princess of epitomy," and am usually frugle with words, (Except in person).

prophetess: I've been going through your portfolio and find myself not wanting to stop reading and not because of how good the work is, although it is very good, but more because of the honesty of your emotion, a trait I wish I possessed. Leo, taurus, and taurus, hmmm, sounds like a VERY stubborn combo to me. Lol.
