When the world gets too hard to bear I escape into my imagination and create a world of my own.

I suppose if you are reading this you want to know a bit about me. That's what these crazy things called profiles are for, huh? Well I'm a writer. Bet you would never have guessed that. Okay, I'll try to be serious, well sort of. I've been writing ever since I was little. I love finding those stories about twins separated at birth and reluctant princesses, orphans and broken legs written in horrible writing whenever I decide to clean out my closet.

I call myself a painter of words. Many people don't necessarily count writing as an art. But it is. It's one of the greatest arts of all because it is one which exercises the mind in ways that other forms of art cannot.

I write for me. Each story I write is a little part of me. A part of me that is sometimes hard to share with others. I think one of the bravest things an artist can do is share his or her work with others. Because every piece is a part of the artist who created it, any rejection of the piece is inadvertently a bit of rejection of the creator. This is not to say that constructive criticism isn't welcome; in fact it is just the opposite. Constructive criticism in one of the best gifts an artist can receive. So don't be afraid to tell the artist what you think of his or her piece, just don't be cruel. Critique what you believe to be problem areas but don't forget to find something good about the work.

Now that I'm finished with my little ditty which I'm not quite sure told you much about me in the end, I encourage you to find yourself something to read and enter into a whole other world of my creation.
