About Me

*** I am sorry but I have turned RR off at this time, please see below ***

The last eight months have brought many challenges in my life. Life has a way of mindfucking you at the moments when everything seems to be going as planned. I now know that you can never depend on "your plans for the future". They can change in a matter of seconds.

So with that, I am sorry for my absence, I have been trying to recover from an event that changed everything. Including my writing. I love this site and cherish the friends I have made here more than you will ever know. As I ease myself back into my writing, I know I will take the criticism hard. Losing yourself, and having to start over has been the biggest challenge of my life. But I will move forward and accept what is, accept what was and start from the beginning.

I would also love to catch up on my dear friends writing, so again please be patient with me - my mind does not work the way it once did.

Passion comes from within, finding your muse, our love, anger, hate, lose, emotions - we write.
We write from deep inside. We share our joys, our sadness our friendships and we make new friendships though our writing. The Cafe brings us closer because here we all have one thing in common our love for writing. No matter what the genre of writing we share, we gather for a reason to grow and learn from one another.

"Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it"
- Jesse Stuart

We all know that not all of our writing will be everyone's cup of tea, but to you/me that is all that counts. Sometimes we fluster, we block, we scream and curse. But at our fingertips something magical happens and that is what comes out on paper. Our poetry, stories, essays, blogs and experiments.

"Writing is the flip side of sex – it's good only when it's over"
- Hunter S. Thompson

Struggling is a part of writing, but a love of struggling. So many words, staring back at you, some making sense while the others a complete mystery. But that's what makes it so great!

PASSION, PASSION, PASSION!

"Follow the path of your aroused thought, and you will soon meet this infernal inscription: There is nothing so beautiful as that which does not exist"
- Paul Valery

Find your muse!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I enjoy reading other's writing, and I don't mind if you send me a read request. But I ask that you please be patient. I try to give your work the review it deserves. I also ask you do the same in return.
I must ask that you please remember that I am also here to write. Please do not send me messages asking me to get to your read requests, for one that is unfair, and second unnecessary.
At this time I am no longer taking friend requests, I have found that I am spending more time reviewing other's work, and getting no reciprocation. I came to the cafe to grow and learn as a writer, and that is what I want to continue to do.
To me there is no point in a one sided friendship

Below are some of my favorite writers and dearest friends, if you haven't already check them out. Their work is magical in their each and own unique way
