I’m just another guy who likes to mess around with wordy stuff – all kinds – some I call ‘poetry’ though my formal and technical handle on ‘real poetry’ I confess is from a highly unschooled perspective, though I try to pluck off a pointer here and there and now and then, learn a little about devices and etc…. same with ‘fictions’. Same with all of it.
So I’m having a ball with this blog. Got lots of (unfinished-drafty-daft) stuff to play with plus doing this blog seems to be stimulating whatever places in the mind are associated with ‘newness’; like I tend to get bogged in a few pieces at the expense of going fresher, so I’ve been on a wave of starting/doing something new each day – even if it’s one paragraph or a couple lines… the more you do it the more habitual it becomes – that idea. If someone out there gets anything good from anything I put in here, why that would be so super peachy sweet.
Well thanks for visiting and reading and… and thanks.
Or could say it this way: If I could draw or paint I would draw or paint but I can’t draw or paint so… one uses what one has to do what one can’t help doing, like making up stuff which is what I like to do. Or try to do. Among other things.
close to a couple years later:
I became aware of options accessible to aspirant wordsmiths in realms of self-publishing; becoming aware, I checked it out and became excited; becoming excited I explored the world responsible for the excitement. Started with ebooks but I should’ve gone right to print, because after seeing the actual thing and being able to flip through paper pages and set the thing on the table or toss it to the counter or even let a drop of coffee dribble on it…. well you get the idea.
So I finally got into what you can do with createspace and I hope it turns into a long and comfortable journey and this will be just the first of many, which is titled after one of the early poems I posted here – which is now available here as: Paper Cuts
around another year later:
as usual the settling comfortably into a groove became elusive, but the latest is that I went and returned a few titles I could be highly critical of but who am I to say they won’t entertain a few folks out there – they are not intended to be all that profound anyway, though again, any profundity can be viewed from the reader’s subjectivity. Also there’s been the issue of a pen I can live with and I think I finally hit on one (though T. H. Seacrest ain’t a bad one – feel like it could come in handy).
Anyway, here’s my Amazon Author page and a few titles, all ebooks except for the Mixins & Fixins, and I’m presently working on a rewrite of the Semen Springs Novella. But sometimes I look at the original version and wonder if it’s okay the way it is.
Well enough blabbing.
