I'm let's just say "European",way down south. I'm 26 years old, I started writing about four years ago when I was diagnosed with cancer. Writing helped me cope and got me through. I joined WOL in an attempt to test myself and my abilities, see if people like my stuff, if I'm any good and also in order to read more stuff written by regular people like me and interact with them. And I've enjoyed evey bit of it! Maybe I come off too strong sometimes, maybe I'm too intense...But I've received the baptism of fire very early on in my life. That's not something you forget; it makes you tough. I've been through hell and back, so I apologize for the occasional excess intensity. But I'd never offend anyone, not deliberately at least. I always try to be a decent, humble as possible, just not an arrogant ass kind of person! I'm more than open to criticism! In fact I welcome it! Otherwise why show your work to people, right? If someone doesn't like me, that's ok. But I am what I am, I've fought hard to preseve this earthly shell and all its contents: grey, scarlett or white; warts and all, and I will stand by and defend myself and my views no matter what. Because everybody deserves that much. I won't try to impose any of them on you though, that goes without saying. I'm always eager to read your work! And that's all folks.
Fleeting -It's on my left arm; it sears. It's on my wings; I try to bear it; in tears. It's in my chest; It beats. It's in the air; I suck it in and it fogs my wits. It used to be inside my mother. It still resides within my father. It's growing inside my sister's womb, as we speak. It fills every second of my time; be it minute, hour or week... I have it here, somewhere...Among my daggers and swords... Look! It's almost out but it's still lit! -Lovely. Any last words? -Yes. I wish I had some more of it. "Art is the imaginary solution to a problem that is unsolvable in real life."
