Blogger Recognition


I begin this post by scowling at… shouting at… giving a shout out to Stevie D who nominated me for this thing. I am thrilled. 😉 In all seriousness though, I suppose I don’t really consider myself a blogger, more a poet who happens to utilize this format. Oh well, time to share a bit about me and the bloggers I enjoy following.

In The Beginning:

…there was light. In this case, not literal light, but the light at the end of the dark, dank tunnel that was a restaurant Stevie and I used to work at together. He’s mentioned in his own post how our mix CD and poetry sharing blossomed, so I’ll just add a my two cents to that story. I had always consistently written, mostly poetry, for  a couple years before meeting him, with no intention of sharing any of it. That’s actually what those Misplaced Missives I post are: Old poetry I was going to leave forever forgotten. But yeah, he was a persistent little bugger and when he found out I wrote (I definitely told him, but I’m not sure I remember what prompted that reveal) , he almost instantly became both a partner and a source of motivation. Soooo yeah, that happened.

Cautious Advice:

  1. Every writer is different. So some advice works and some doesn’t and you really have to figure that out first hand, one day at a time. I will say that the most important thing, at least I hope, is maintaining those differences. That’s what makes your story worth reading; no one else can tell your life as you can. Which brings me to advice 2:
  2. Live your life and don’t be afraid. Or do be afraid, but do everything anyway. And then write about it. All of it. I hide in my poetry and alliteration and goofiness, but I’m still telling you about me. So tell it at a slant if you’re a bit of a coward like me, but tell it. All of it.

And the Nomination goes to…
