I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?

  He fell to earth,  and when the breath returned to his body,  he stared,  wincing at the sky in disbelief, and had to decide to live, or topple over into panic, chafing at his human mask, something to hide … Continue reading

  I close my eyes and reach down, deep inside myself,  where it’s quiet,         for a while, but the deeper I go the louder it gets.  The air bends around me squeezing my face  as the thoughts I hide … Continue reading
