I like to write, but these days I'm putting a higher value on sleep.

I LOVE getting a Review Alert email notice, so feel free to give your best, and worst, opinions.

Also, if you like poetry, check out kangas speak (http://www.fictionpress.com/~kangasspeak).

I've lost inspiration for the moment on "The Watchers" so I should really take it down, but it's not hurting anyone by leaving it up.

I'll been working on"My Life is no Fairy Tale", but it's mostly handwritten and unorganized in a few different tablets scattered about. I'll be changing the title on that as well as rewriting what's already posted.

Quote of the day - every day:
Some pursue happiness;
you create it
-- the message in my fortune cookie :-)

True re-tellings:
Hell in a Handbasket
My Life is no Fairy Tale
A Day in the Life
Relax
Leftovers
The Bond
A Love Story
After the Rain
Family Reunion
Regret
Crush-ed
Hollow

Looselybased on a life event:
Betrayed

Loosly based on a loved one's life event:

Essays:
Someone Died Today
Why are Women so Stupid?

The Watchers
The Plight of Me (writing contest entry - not terribly happy with it)
Invisible
Hopeless
I Want (mushy and somewhat juvenile)
Step Right Up
Lip Service
Hissy Fit
Mother
Wrinkles
Some Senryus (a small collection of poems)
