I often misuse office supplies.
You can see what I mean here
I also play guitar and sing in an indie rock band called MAKAR with my husband.
I appreciate any and all constructive criticism on my work. Although I may not always take your advice.

I write so I don't disappear.
I write so other people don't disappear, people who were important to me, who don't even know they were important and still reverberate in my memory. I just have to remember it all even if what I have captured isn't entirely recognizable.
This is perhaps a bit simplistic but my compulsion is finally making sense to me.
Almost everything and anything inspires me.
yeah, yeah, yeah - I'll get to this but I'm too busy reading
thanks very much for the feedback. i feel you on hitting the surrogate home more. thank you for pointing me in that direction - it did seem like everyone was missing that. look forward to reading some of your stuff soon as i get back from my travels...
Thanks for the kind words on Flotation Device!

thanks for your bday shout on fb and here. ha re your oberlin cleansing comment. lee klein also attended oberlin, i should add. he's the eyeshot editor who hated my yellow teeth story. hated probably isn't quite strong enough.
thanks for your comments on "Yellow Teeth"! I posted a comment to explain my madness!!!!
Hey there! Thanks for your comment on my "wall". My pleasure reading/commenting and THANK YOU for doing the same. Cheers, David
Ah, Darryl, I do some funny art pieces with them. I'll have to find a way to link to the picture on Facebook.
Thanks for reading. I'm working on a ton of short stories all at once which is odd because I've been working on one long novel for sooooo long!
How does one misuse office supplies? I don't know why but this strikes me as hilarious. Looking forward to reading much more of your work.
Hi Andrea, welcome. We were born about two months apart. That seems worth mentioning.
