I've been writing for EVER. Well, at least as long as I can remember. I have those story books you write for kindergarten class, all bound with full plot lines and horrid artwork (hence why I went to the writing side...not the illustration). There's this one piece, I'm certain it would actually be good if I could get it all down, in one notebook. I've been working on it for five years. That's so sad and pathetic. *sigh*
My poems have a slightly shorter brain-shelf life. I bang those out like store bought cake mix. Course...they' may very well be crap.
