Update:

2012: I've been working on my original fiction for publication, so I am actually writing. But, it's unlikely I'll be posting here in the near future. If you're interested in my other works, check out my blog at busyprocrastinator.blogspot.com.


Hello, fellow writers and readers! Thank you for visiting my profile.

I have a BS in ENGLISH, so I do enjoy writing and reviewing. I also have minors in professional writing and art. However, don't expect my punctuation to be perfect--somehow I manage to never give my works a proper read-over before posting them. I don't mind criticism. I desperately want to improve as a writer; I'm not just posting works for the attention. . . Well, not entirely.

I don't like folks who believe in making others feel like idiots because, apparently, their opinion is the only one that counts in regards to the literary value of a piece. I only mention this because I attempt not to treat other writers this way, regardless of their age or experience (two different things, by the way). If you take a review I leave offensively, you probably didn't understand my comment/suggestion. Feel free to contact me if this is the case, and I'll attempt to explain myself.

For a list of really good authors, check out my favorite authors list. I especially recommend Kimmi and Patricia from my list if you wish to read some great fantasy or supernatural. For romantic/angst poetry, check out my friend Savannah's work.


Quickies

"Thursday the 12th"

"The Shadow Dancer"--(under 7000 wd) Short story in four updates. Bradley's dead and trapped in his own room. For him, this is the perfect time to reflect on his past.

"Raising Kane"--Originally written for Creative Writing. A trip to the Piggly Wiggly leads to Abe's least favorite chore of taking care of his big bro, Kane. A short story about small town life in Belmont, Mississippi, for two teenage brothers who just want to get out or get movin'.

"Cheap Flowers for the Dead"--Very short and written quite a few years back after my great uncle's funeral. It's a about a vampire watching a young girl's life pass.

"Scent on the Pillow"--She caught his scent on the pillow. . .

"Being a Bench"--A not so romantic day in the park, and, all in all, a crappy afternoon. But I guess love doesn't have to be perfect.

"The Vampire"--He takes my life, my will, and wraps me around his little finger. He can't be human, right? Rated for sexual content.

"Wraith"--Flashfiction. I never knew a wraith to look so pretty. She'd been dead for years. But her corpse was only two days old.

A Quick Word on Modern American Poetry:

For those of you reading my more recent poetry, you might notice that I don't capitalize the first letters of each line when I'm writing. This is done on purpose. For the past fifty to one hundred years, American poets have broken away from this type of formatting, especially when rhyme is not present. (Note: often text books capitalize where no capitalization was required in the original document.) In studying the history of poetry, you'll find that capitalization has never been a requirement for each line. However, capitalized lines are practiced in several other countries, so I felt it necessary to explain why my poetry formatting might look slightly different compared to the formatting of a poem written by an author in the UK.

Also, you might find that I create break lines in very strange places. This is also a modern poetic device and is done on purpose. I, for one, often break the line so that a reader can perceive a different meaning to the first line before he/she reads the next. In fact, I can't retain most of my original formatting (tabs, etc) because of Fictionpress's uploading system. So, feel free to comment if a specific break is distracting, but I just thought I'd let you know that the breaks are purposely placed.
