About Me

I was born in California, but have lived in many different places over the course of my 30 years. More than half of which were due to my gypsy soul. I have always loved the rush of a new beginning, which incidentally is where I find myself, yet again. Though, I must say it is an entirely different experience this time, as I am further East, than I have ever been before. After twelve years, I am finally able to stay at home as a wife, mother and aspiring writer. Now that I have the time and opportunity, I guess it's time to get the lead out, meataphorically speaking. My father was my biggest fan, and a huge inspiration to me. Saddly, he died without ever publishing any of his beautiful poetry. My efforts are dedicated to him.

Hey girl, I posted a couple of new poems. When I get some time to type some of my short stories into the computer, I will get them added too.

Hey, actually, I really like daughter. I found it touching and well worded. I didn't comment on it at the time because I didn't feel that I had the right words to speak to my feelings on the subject. A lot of your fears are my fears, I don't have the same problems to overcome, but I still worry that I'm messing up my kids or that something will happen to them or to me. I think that a lot of it is general parenting stuff, but I couldn't imagine compounding the feelings I have with the health issues you have. I just wanted you to know I loved it.

i need some advice. My story, willard, I am starting to experiment with verb tenses in the story to make time seem somewhat elusive. so far i have been using simple past like "was" or "were" and using past perfect "had been." But now I find myself in the present moment when the landlord knocks on willard's door. "He is watching cartoons when he knocks on his door." But when that happens Willard enters a dream state, a catatonic state, "where days pass unanswered." And it is something that's been happening in the past for willard and is still happening to him. Now that is present perfect. "Time has been slowly lapsing for Sid." see my dillemma? I dont want to confuse the reader. Now I have not mixed tenses in the same paragraph let alone in the same sentence. But in the first few paragraphs it is simple past(was or were) to past perfect(had, had been). then switches to present(is watching) to present perfect (has been) considering the unstable mentality of Willard. now is this correct? or should I go back to the beginning and switch the beginning "Sid Wyatt thought he was a cartoon character" to present "Sid thinks he is a cartoon character" or even present progressive "Sid is thinking he is a cartoon character?" this is driving me nuts. I have the story posted in my profile edited the way I summarized to you. see what you think about the tenses in the story.
