I write to keep from feeling the slow death of Lyme disease...I live for the stories I need to tell to make me whole again.

*The Dictionary! Always searching for that perfect word :)
* I'm always reading some of my favorite poets, mostly of the confessional sort; S. Plath, and others.
I've come across many new great poets via internet and notice i gravitate towards the, 'in your face, raw- all out truth be told", sorta stuff... thats what i truly love to read, in any form.
*"The Very Best Poetry 2009" by WEbook writers :)
I'm always writing poetry no matter what else is going on around me; its where I hide when life is too much.
I have a knack for learning the hard way and it seems to go hand in hand with the term "freak magnet", a virtual sign clearly hanging overhead, and the source of my unending cast of characters circling me like buzzards on a fresh kill.
Still, some days I'd rather write fiction and hang with a saner crowd,
but I guess thats someone else's life.
Right now I'm writing three different books in different genres, probably due to the fact that I have Neuro-Lyme disease which affects my concentration, to say the least.
The one upside, with a glass half full, is a constant flow of fresh thoughts, but, the half empty glass, is lacking ability to harness them!
I love writing shorts because I can usually bend my mind around that length to finish before jumping into 3 more ideas.
I was an avid WEbooker years ago when they put out their book of 2009 poets, and proud to say I am one, but then became to ill to continue with any kind of online site or social life.
What I learned is very difficult to discuss, but why I write!
Its never been more exciting then now, here on this site, and thats a fabulous thing for a writer.
Don't be surprised if you read something too strange to be true, its just my life!
Hope to meet you~

Anyone who can take me somewhere that allows me to forget where I am. And, a good laugh is always great.
