I am a mom to three kids (one of whom directed me to Wattpad and is writing here already), four cats, and one Jack Russell Terrier who thinks she's a cat. I'm married to a great thinker and writer, Scott, who rarely shares his work but will always share his thoughts. I have a BA in Creative Writing so I do love to write (poetry, fiction, blog/articles--depending on what's best for the material) but I also enjoy editing for friends, reading, painting (oil), and singing ( music in general). I published writing in college often and enjoyed sharing work and gaining feedback while on MySpace long ago, but no longer use that forum. Feedback is always welcome! Since four of these already uploaded poems will be submitted as a whole 10 piece work to the 2012 Atty Awards, I may need to remove them soon--- looking into that. But I've labeled them for now so friends can see what I'm submitting. I'm also working on 6 more forms to complete the task. Those won't be uploaded, until they are a whole document with 10 poems total (including the 4 you see here). Stay tuned! Oh! And another version of Caged has been accepted for publication in a book! Look for Uno Kudo, Volume 2: Naked to be out on shelves and virtual shelving mid November 2012! Entered Silence into (the 1st Annual) 2012 Atty Awards in the Enthusiast Category. (Next year--Competitor category--10 poems from 10 separate poetic styles.) Check it out! My 10 (soon to be 11) year old son, Noah, and I are co-authoring the book Different during National Novel Writing Month this November. It is about our journey as a family, but his in particular, as we learned about and decided upon ways to look at Noah's Asperger's Syndrome. We see it as a Superpower, not a disability, and that has made an enormous difference. He owns this.
