considering how much I write about my feelings, I'm quite incapable of writing about myself. wade through a few hundred poems or so on my website and determine what you will of my character. something - anything - must have seeped into those.
fuel is my unending optimism and idealism in the face of such a cruel, cynical world. I write because it is cleaner and frankly less accident prone than the real letting of blood. it's a cleansing process, methinks.
I'm under-read, really. but I love Saramago, Martel, Orwell, Atwood, and pretend to know things about Coetzee and Hesse and others like that. I've read three Dan Brown novels; does it make me a worse person? Potentially the answer to that question is yes, so please don't actually answer.
kyall i am itching to answer that question about dan brown novels, but i enjoy a good stephen king on a rainy day and i think popular taste is just part of the whole karmic pizza (or was it mystic?) of storytelling so who cares. i know i dont and i welcome you! happy to be the first graffiti artist on yer wall!
