About Me

Having first managed to drop out of an art school, I graduated from University with an English degree. Please, don't take that to mean I know what I'm doing. Prose is my first port of call, but I sporadically weigh anchor in verses of profound nonsense.


Things likely to turn me off a story:

- first person present tense
- daft 'fantasy' character names, (apostrophes, double-barrels, spelling with a 'y' instead of an 'i.')
- exposition-wedging
- deliberately dressed-up language (eg., 'occuli' instead of eyes? Please!)
- people who write 'addicting' when they mean 'addictive.'
- people who write 'likely' when they mean 'probably.'
- the opening line '[blank] is [blank] the first time [s/he] [blanks].'
- the opening line 'the first time [blank] [blanks], [s/he] is [blank]'
- referring to a character by a title rather than a pronoun (eg. the man, the brunette, etc.).

[more of these as they occur to me ^_^']


Favourite Poet: [at the mo] Ted Hughes.
Favourite Writer/s: Pterry, Neil Gaiman, Rowling.
Recently discovered: Daniel Woodrell, Gene Wolfe.

Thanks for your review! Yeah, that version of Black Dog was by Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation. Check it out on youtube...very different, but funky as hell:) Nice to meet you.

Thank you for your kind remarks on my page. ^_^ It's really nice meeting you and I'm glad you find my poetry to be intriguing. It's just I hope that by the time you're able to understand my poetry, I'll have evolved and will keep growing (so that I'll always be able for you to never understand, lol.) Kidding, not trying to be spiteful.

Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read my poetry. From a quick glimpse of your poetry, you are going to be a great artist one day! Keep it up!
