About Me

Why do you write?

I'm the weirdo in restaurants, bus stops, shopping malls and train stations that gives everybody a terribly dark back story. I am still trying to keep my oddest thoughts to myself. Strangers really don't like that sort of thing. So I smile and nod and think how they would reach their demise.

I recently wrote a one act play about a school shooting. That was an exhausting piece. But so worth it. And I hope it honoured, in some small way, everybody affected by this tragic phenomena.

My poetry is imagery on sherbet dips.

Any favorite authors? Books?

I hate these questions *mutter mutter* *dark looks*

I have always enjoyed the name, Tabitha, and now here your are!

Ann Bogle – Jan 23, 2016

Thanks for your reading and commenting on my piece posted on 1/22/2016 called "Fish." I really like your profile page! I've visited your page before and find this worth saying: your page honors all the difficulties of not writing and places emphasis on the bounty of pursuing writing. I would like to read here again and use your entries and your profile answers as guides. _Wide Sargasso Sea_ is on my to-reread list, especially after I discovered in re-perusing it its complexities that intrigue. I had remembered its lyricism. I remembered beautiful sentences and passages and yet I did not remember IT. Cheers,

Tabatha - Thanks for visiting my "Oh, what's this?" she". I'm glad it made you smile and wasn't given the "terribly dark back story". Incidentally, my latest project, OTHERS, has a 17 year old female protagonist in it that I named Tabitha (with an "i"). Now I wonder if your spelling has more of something magical going for it as you are so talented. I'll be catching up on your work in the days to come. Stay on top of those sherbert dips! Toot-a-lou!

Tabatha, that is. Morning fingers.
