"The only thing to write about is life. It follows then, that to write well, you must explore and take from the world as much as you can." --Unknown I'm just starting out both as a writer and a poet. I'm a little nervous about putting my stuff out there...but I'm also excited to get feedback from others and improve. I think that over the past year, I've improved tremendously in my writing by becoming more careful and conscious in my word choice and sentence structure. I know I've still got a long way to go and a lot to learn, but I feel that I've moved a little closer in finding a strong and unique voice and style.
