"~If I keep a green bough in my heart, the singing bird will come. Chinese Proverb~" I find the best way to describe myself is through facts, since your poetic minds will hopefully imagine me as a better human than I honestly am. So; Fave word(s): Spelunking, spatula, fiend, swashbuckling, flummoxed, flabbergasted Fave Vision: Red-orange Fave Hearing: Wind chimes Fave Smell: Cut grass Fave Taste: Rice pudding Fave Touch: Hugs (I'm actually Head Goon in the Hug Committee here) I wrote my first (so far only) book at age six about a witch who didn't want to be a witch; and that was the title. It was on orange construction paper, drawn with stubby crayons as accurate as miracles. My materials now are better; but trust me, writing doesn't come easier. I have wanted to be a writer FOREVER. I have a document called "Instant Thoughts", which shows how to jumpstart the blender they tell me is my brain. Here are some for you, from yours truly; Sweetest gold Tears ripple round the world Aerodynamic life "God wears camouflage" (A lyric from Sleep Through the Static, by Jack Johnson. And I'm atheist--nice thought, though.) Finally? I have killed computers, never fainted, stabbed myself with pens and pencils, maimed books forever, made up memories, and hit myself in the head with a tennis racket while serving. ALL THIS for you--because every bit of my life has changed how I write. And you will be the ones enjoying the fruits of my labor. It may be a dragon fruit (that's a legit fruit) but you'll never know... till you bite.
