Author has written 47 stories for General, Haiku, Fantasy, Religion, Life, War, Fantasy, and Nature.

For now, no updates. Although I might have time, being in college now and taking nineteen credits (ahem).

I write nearly exclusively poetry, and try to stay away from or tinker with the old cliches; I probably will continue to do things like that until one of those cliches happens to me. Now that you've come to the end of this bio, go down a bit further and read some of my stuff.

My personal favorites are Night Skies, Dusk 'til Dawn, Imperfect Empathic, Dragon's First Love, and more recently, Whispers in the Crowd. I hope you like them too - if you don't, review and tell me why. Of course, some of you have reviewed just to
say you liked it - ego-boosts are appreciated too, but not encouraged.

Whispers in the Crowd reviews

Echoes of Oblivion reviews
Poetic apocalypse - someone has to be around to write the war ballads, right? Now if it was the person who started it all...

Ah, the vagueness of religion. I suppose this would be my take on it...

I apologize for the lack of length, but here it is. Hope you like it.

All Will Pass Eventually, So Relax reviews
Starting up again after some poetic hibernation, so to speak... same as last time, though. Three short poems: "All Will Pass"; "Eventually,"; and "So Relax"... Enjoy.

Empty Space Is Hard To Find reviews
Well broken into three. I'm actually thinking of doing monthly themes or something; this means I get to stop doing this in November.

But It Seems So Far To Reach reviews
Late again, but I got it done. Inspired by various things of mine I'm not bothering to mention. Enjoy.

What Would It Be Like To Have Wings? reviews
Broken into three again; enjoy - short summary this time.

I'm Not Staying Up Too Late, Am I? reviews
Whee - I think this is kind of self-explanatory as a title, but it's as usual broken up into three kind of unrelated poems. Hope you like them.

The Deadline Wears Thin On My Nerves reviews
Well, this one's the daily poem for today. I guess it was inspired by an essay for which the deadline was midnight tonight. Hadn't even noticed that until today...
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 113 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 10/13/2002
Falling Asleep In a Concert At The Finale reviews
Made this up yesterday, but FF.N was down for reworking so I couldn't post it then. Lacking inspiration currently for todays - but enjoy this one!

Metacognition Is Thinking About Thinking reviews
Odd title, isn't it? I got it from one of my haikus... but anyway, enjoy...

Misinterpreted One of Two Ways reviews
Yet another trio...
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 118 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 10/10/2002
Facets of Myself reviews
Okay, didn't have enough room for the real title, so here it is: Morbid, Cynical, Whimsical... But Not Depressed—That's Me. Daily three are a bit late again, but at least I'm staying on schedule (sort of).
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 120 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 10/9/2002
A Title For My Poems Doesn't Come To Mind reviews
Slightly grammatically incorrect, hm? I apologize. I recognize it, but in a way, it's fitting...
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 132 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 10/8/2002
Skiv's Fantasy reviews
I didn't want this to be untitled, but this is my first attempt at really long stuff; the third chapter should probably be longer. Working on this off and on, had abandoned it before a reviewer told me to put it up. (It's on my website)
Fiction: Fantasy - Rated: K - English - Humor - Chapters: 3 - Words: 5,203 - Reviews: 3 - Favs: 1 - Published: 10/7/2002
A Mortal Terror Of Death reviews
Admittedly, these are short, and I've probably overrated this... enjoy if you like dark stuff, and if you don't, there's the first one.
Poetry: General - Rated: K+ - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 117 - Reviews: 3 - Published: 10/7/2002
Oh, Fine I'm Late Deal With It reviews
Yes, I am. So I let that color these three - they're kind of short, but they exist here now, so enjoy.

No Poems? Why Not? Please? reviews
Questions, questions, questions... I finally got around to this because if I didn't now, then it would be another five hours before I could get another chance at it...

Reading in Class As I'm Doing Isn't a Good Idea reviews
Three-in-one title again! I'm not doing these every day now, but I seem to have found my way around the writer's block for now. Enjoy, though these I admit could be better somehow.
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 171 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 10/4/2002
Blue Lined Yellow Paper reviews
Finally - another color in the mix! (See Poetic Collections for Blue and Red...). This is another of those three-in-one titles. Enjoy, and maybe review; I haven't gotten many recently...
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 149 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 10/3/2002
Rhymes Lying Impatient On a Wall reviews
Admittedly, this is late, but by my watch it's still the same day. If you're in England or somewhere else like that, you're probably disagreeing. Still it's here. Enjoy.
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 195 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 10/2/2002
The Late Daily Poem reviews
Again, this one's not in the three-in-one title format; I wrote this one a bit late in the day, I agree. Sorry about that, it's a Tuesday. Rated PG because someone might sue me if it was G, and I don't have the money to defend myself.
Poetry: General - Rated: K+ - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 190 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 10/1/2002
Chaotic Frost reviews
Kind of wintry themes, and I admit, I'm not doing the three-in-one title this time, I've either gotten tired of it or I'm lacking inspiration...
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 127 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 9/30/2002
May You Live in Interesting Times reviews
So the rating says... implicit mature themes, I suppose. Might possibly be PG anyway. My first actual non-poetry thing up here... I KNOW it needs work, but I'm having trouble with exactly what... meaning please review. Chapter 2's up...

Twilight Drifting Of Nothing Dreaming reviews
Hopefully these poems are better than some of my previous ones recently... I haven't been doing my best work, and my reviewers agree.
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 84 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 9/29/2002
Too Late For My Own Good reviews
Some angst, some humor, and some possibility of this possibly being a G. I guess I have a knack for halfway measures...
Poetry: General - Rated: K+ - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 183 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 9/28/2002
Written Thoughts Drifting Away reviews
Angst? Humor? I don't know, you decide. Enjoy what I have written. Or don't, and tell me what I need to change. Up to you.

It Is Far Better To Light A Candle reviews
I admit, the three titles were this time based on a saying instead of everyday conversation... but then again, I don't have conversations every day, do I?
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 179 - Reviews: 3 - Published: 9/25/2002
Homework Come Too Soon reviews

Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 131 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 9/24/2002
It's Not All Fun And Games reviews
Usual three, kind of dark this time. Hm... to G or not to G? Or maybe PG. Oh well... read my other stuff at your leisure. Read this one later.
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 136 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 9/23/2002
Quite Boring, Isn't It? reviews
Kind of philosophical and cynical - the usual three again, refer to previous entries for specifics. Okay, I think I'll be condensing these into a weekly soon...

Sleeping In Before Music Theory reviews
Guess how this one's broken up? Or don't, just read it. Three poems, as usual.
Poetry: General - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 119 - Reviews: 2 - Published: 9/21/2002
You Must Be Mistaken This Time reviews
I don't know if it really deserves this rating; maybe it should be a G - oh, and by the way, these three poems are completely unrelated (except for the title, of course).
Poetry: General - Rated: K+ - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 142 - Reviews: 1 - Published: 9/20/2002
Come We Have Work To Do reviews
Another one - er. Three poems with titles (and stories) that combine into one bigger story/title. Hope you like it!

Quiet Names Half Asleep On a Sunday Afternoon reviews
Lazy and strange. I made up the third poem to get the three titles to make a sentence again. Hope you like it!

Science Experiments Gone Wrong reviews
I'm not really used to writing humor stuff, but hey! This was another experiment based on yesterday's daily poems. The poems are: Science; Experiments; Gone Wrong. Please flame me, I haven't gotten any of those yet.

This isn't actually a collection of all my daily poems (I only started doing daily when I got on here): only three - I think that'll be my usual from now on.
