Biography

I love writing. I've been told I was good, but do not know. I have enjoyed doing Wrestling for my wonderful team. I love my wonderful family of 10. They are so supportive of me. They have been there when no one else has. I really want to get feedback from my work so I can improve. I may not have the most skill but this is what I really like to do.

Samples

The heartache and pain, comes at me like rain. I am ever so dire, for my heart's strongest desire. The love I so long. I try to go along. The rejection I face. Afraid of the human race. Together we are in it, together we will win it. The rock in my path. You've set off my wrath. The many sleepless nights. I feel I have no rights. I know I must be wrong. I just have to stay strong.

Welcome to WOL, Maki. I admire your honesty. Thinking is essential to poetry, so you are off to a great beginning. And writing definitely helps to 'sort things out'. You may find a 'free style' is a good way to start, without being hassled with rhyme. But, maybe, you actually enjoy that challenge. Whichever, always read over what you've written and ask yourself, 'What is here that I can say with fewer words, better ones?' I think that was the best advice I ever got. And I try to practise it always. So - have a thesaurus handy, the writer's best friend. And use it. Broaden your 'well of words' every day. Your mind can express only as much as your words allow. They are your 'tool' for building ideas for your own eyes and for others to share.

And a pure 'love of writing' is a wonderful thing - very demanding, but so rewarding.
