"Hardly a day passes that does not furnish some new instance of the paucity of national attachment in our country." The Gleaner aka Judith Murray on "new" literature in America. I was born and raised in Southern Louisiana and moved to the Pensacola area in the Fall of 2009 to attend UWF as a Writing major. After three previous colleges, I really thought I had finally found somewhere that was just perfect for me! However, like the weather always changes, so do your opportunities. I had always wanted to go to UNO since I was in high school but never could due to housing. Now, I finally have an opportunity to live near the campus and may be enrolling as an English major there, focusing in Creative writing of course! ;) I love Poe, Lovecraft, and Angelou. I am not the biggest fan of Dickenson, Joyce, or Shakespeare. I enjoy writing poetry but do not feel like poetry is my strong spot. My real love is short stories and I hope to one day publish a novella... Maybe even a full novel if I can discipline myself. ;) I think I have plenty of good (maybe even great) ideas.
