Author has written 72 stories for General, Biography, Love, General, Haiku, Family, and Life.

I'm young (ish) and I don't believe it's in my character to get older. I write for my own benefit, but I don't always understand everything I say. I pretend to be a private person who doesn't share my emotions but apparently I'm not. And yes I have "issues" like everybody else, but nobody tells me what they are and they say I have to figure them out myself. Go figure. Constructive criticism is always greatly appreciated, but so are little lines saying that you liked what I wrote. It's nice to know people actually read what I write occasionally. If you see something wrong with formatting or typoes (ie last line on the left side of the page) drop me a note and I'll fix it. usually.

Excerpt from Anne Carson's book Plainwater:

On Hedonism
Beauty makes me hopeless. I don't care why anymore I just want to get away. When I look at the city of Paris I long to wrap my legs around it. When I watch you dancing there is a heartless immensity like a sailor in a dead-calm sea. Desires as round as peaches bloom in me all night, I no longer gather what falls.
-Anne Carson
