A bit crazy. A bit unsatisfied. Universally inquisitive and heartbreakingly shy. English major thinking of software engineering.
I write because I'm curious. I write to relieve tension. I write because I don't understand the world.
Neil Gaiman fuses literary elements with mainstream elements in his fantasy novels that really work for that genre. I like Raymond Carver- a master of the contemporary short story. This Is How You Lose Her and The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz I can spend a lifetime imitating (such a kickass voice). Mike Chabon- one of if not my most favorite prose stylist. I hope I can say something as relevant as Ralph Ellison's Battle Royale.
Tiffany thanks for your note on Athena, really appreciate it, am now following you :)
thank you Tiffany. Oh man, that is unreal, your mother losing 4 friends IN ONE YEAR to it. So awful, scary.. so sad.
Thank you for reading Psych Interview with a Rape Victim. Much appreciated.
Thank you for your kind and pereceptive reaction to "Weightless" and for what it's worth, you're right, I just let the names and all those unitentional rhymes carry parts of the piece.
Tiffany - thank you so much, what an incredibly kind comment, really appreciate the feedback!
And for the star! :)
Thank you, Tiffany, for reading "1991!"
Hey, how have you been? Thank you so much for reading "30 Seconds," and commenting. And the fav. That made my morning!
Thanks, Tiffany for your generous comments on "Modern Warfare"
Aw. Thank you so much. I hate MILFS and COUGARS (the terms) they make me ill. I could have gone hard hitting, but sometimes i think humor gets to it better, at least for me. Yep. Same.
So glad you liked "Quitting," Tiffany. Thanks for the star!
Plot or beautiful, poetic prose? I would have to go with plot, not that prose isn't important. I think the story is universal, and more easy to recognize. People will forgive a sloppy style, but they won't forgive a mismanaged plot (or at least I won't).
