About Me

Hello my name is Amanda and I am an english/creative writing major at ASU.

I do not think good writing is a pure organic ejaculation of spirit; nor do I think it is an exacting formula that can be applied provided you know the steps. It is a balance between the two.

If I dislike a poem I will not comment on it.

If I like a poem I will offer what I think is stong and what I think is not. If you have been offended by me i offer my condolences, but not my apologies.



I haven't been around in awhile and have a few old friends who may want to know this. The rest of you don't need to bother since the following has nothing to do with who I am.

Two days before Halloween I went into the hospital because I had such abdominal pain I couldn't stand up. To make a long story short I had a 9cm tumor on the tail of my pancreas.

I have been diagnosed with a psuedopapillary tumor. Very very rare and very survivable, but cancer nonetheless. The next few months will be spent determining whether or not I need Chemo.

My work has cut me hours and this has been an intense financial blow, but I have maintained my school and I am starting to really get back to 100%. In sum they removed a tumor, my spleen, and half my pancreas.

The good news is the worst is over. I have had friends here and I want them to know that I am all right.

That explains the hiatus in writing and communication. Where are you now?
