Journal Entry: Fri Dec 2, 2016, 1:06 PM
I woke up this morning to find out that I'd received a Daily Deviation.  It's funny, as DD's seem to come along at times when I'm questioning my writing abilities.  Some may have noticed, or not, but my posts have become less frequent.  It's not out of a lack of interest, more so a lack of time, but is also part of my need to take a small break from writing.  I'm not doing it due to a lack of things to write, but because I feel like I need gaps in my writing to refresh it sometimes.  Have you ever just felt like things blur together and your message is getting lost?  When I feel that way, I take a small break.

For the past few days I've been thinking about writing a lot and wondering what I'm doing with it, where its going to go, where it will take me or I will take it.  Receiving a DD is such a nice reminder that the things I write can carry power, and that the people reading them can share in the emotion and even be moved by them.  For those of you who have been reading them and commenting and feature, I am truly grateful.  You're the best and I am always incredibly thankful for the support of this community.


Any gamers around?  I've been looking to add people to my friends list on Xbox One and PS4.  Drop me a note if you're interested.

Bio:

I can't stand the idea of never knowing an answer. This feeds into my fascinations with history, criminology, philosophy and psychology. I have a need to know, to get down to the core of something or someone and understand the reasons why. I tend to view the world through analytical eyes and while most are losing themselves in the moment, I am memorizing it. My mind has so many topics to focus on that often times I have difficulty dedicating myself to a single one because they are all arguing for my attention.

I started writing as a child, making little books about cartoon characters, including creating my own. I grew serious about writing in high school where I joined the literary magazine and won several awards. All told, I began writing 28 years ago, wrote my first poem 19 years ago. Often times I write a piece, I am not sure where it is going or why, but upon completion I find myself looking into my own mind and discovering what it is that I am feeling or thinking. A subliminal glimpse into the essence of who I am lies somewhere between the lines I scribe.

My interest in history is extremely broad, with favorite historical figures ranging from Alexander the Great to George Washington. I am also hung up on unsolved historical crimes, the Zodiac Killer and Jack the Ripper, for example. I am an extremely picky reader. Many classical authors fail to catch my attention though I love the works of Edgar Allan Poe, J.D. Salinger and Emily Dickinson. Philosophically I am drawn to Baudrillard and Kant.

I am always open to discussion or random conversation. You can feel free to contact me either through deviantart or on one of the various instant messaging programs I use, my usernames for which are listed below. I have been a member of deviantart for over 8 years and love being a part of the vastly talented literature community. I hope in the future to take a bigger part in that community and to contribute and promote it in whatever ways I can.

Quotes:
"I like a look of agony / because I know it's true."

"Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies."

"Better that we die on our feet than live on our knees."

"In a world of global deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

"No target on earth and no purpose in Heaven."

"Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth."

Want to play with some lyrics?  I'm going to post random song lyrics to analyze.  Today's choice:

"did you exchange a walk on part in the war
for a lead role in a cage"
