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.

Location: Western North Carolina

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."

I don't see what many others do when it comes to my writing. On a very, very positive day, I am willing to say it is good. On a normal day, I define it as average. On a normal day, I think it's a lot of coal and maybe a diamond or two.

Over the course of the past few months, I've been struggling. I stepped back from writing because I was beginning to lose some part of myself in it. The part of me that writes for answers, that writes for truth. I began writing what I felt was expected of me, not what I expected of myself. In my opinion, that resulted in a steady decrease in quality and a dramatic shift in style. So, that coupled with the events of real life sort of pushed me into exile. I stepped away from deviantart, but I also stepped away from writing.

I didn't put pen to paper in a serious manner for months. The longer I was gone, the harder is became. Like going back to college, you say you will, but time passes and things get in the way and before you know it you're thirty and looking for a degree. I signed up for a creative writing class, partially to fulfill a credit requirement for graduation, which I'm finally nearing, but also, to push myself. I wanted to be in an environment where I had no choice but to write and just see what happened.

So far, the class has pushed me. And I have been thinking more and working harder at what I do. At a minimum, I've been putting a lot more thought into than I used to. That being said, I came on deviantart this afternoon to discover I'd received my 4th Daily Deviation. In the past, when I received one, I felt excited and thrilled and arrogant to a degree. Today when I saw it, I felt unworthy and humble.

I am not sure where my writing is going. At this point in my life, it's sort of... get better and pursue publication, real publication, or surrender to it being a hobby for myself. I've always dreamed of being published, to have my name on an overpriced book in a store where people browse and then buy it for cheaper on Amazon. Well, maybe not that exact dream, but whatever way I go with it, it is truly inspiring and uplifting to feel like what I have written is good, or worthy of recognition here. There are so many fantastic writers here and for me to have even just twenty-four hours of being noticed is more than I could ask for.

So, for those of you who have supported me over the years, and for those of you who have always had faith, I hope to repay you and earn that dedication.

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

for a lead role in a cage"
