About Me: 11/29/2012

I am a 38, W Female married, heavily-tattooed, i am a writer, i am an Artist, a painter, a Poet, an Animal Lover, and also occasionally the lunatic running the asylum.

I am also wiccan, interested in zen. I am a gypsy, a fortune teller, a music lover, a bibliophile and unemployed. I suffer from a severe case of right-wing politics, a bleeding-heart liberal, with a feminist bent. I say the first or second thing that ever pops into my head-without T-H-I-N-K_ing first.

I also believe that the power of making Art heals many things, if not everything, it will at least improve your mood. I consider many things to be creating art: painting,drawing,collage,sculpture,found object creations, photography, graffati, interior design, playing music, like piano, guitar ect., writing creatively, short stories, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, spoken word, poetry-slams, even talking a walk in nature can be art. i forgot performance art, opps sorry. I love many many creative things.

Read my blog, if you dare, cause i call things like i see em, and my poems are not always about pretty and happy flowers….or shiny happy people either-(nods to R.E.M)

    • I’ve checked out your blog, too, quite a few times. Very nifty stuff. I really dig your artwork too! Sorry I did not reply back very promptly. I do quite a bit of blogging and must have missed your comment-just saw it today, because I was reviewing my pages, to make sure I did not sound like an idiot or an a$$. Thanks, Emily

  1. Can I ask you a potentially stupid question? Well, I am going to, so feel free to or to not answer ;0)

    You spoke of different forms of creativity and one such incuded was “short stories”. What does this mean? Do you know? I know, it sounds like such a stupid question and I’m not an entirely uneducated person, but is it just like a regular story that is just shorter in length? Or is it like, I don’t know, is there something special about it besides being short? God, what a weird question lol! I just felt from reading the above “about you” that you might have some insight. If not, ignore please. I’m leaning towards it being a dumb question too, but honestly, even Wikipedia couldn’t satisfy my curiosity. Thanks, and looking forward to reading more!

    • Kyrielle,
      There are no such things as dumb or stupid questions. In my humble opinion, more folks are “dumb” or “stupid” for never asking questions. Asking questions is a terrific way to learn. Yes there is a difference between a short story and a normal story. Mostly the biggest difference is in length. I had long enjoyed the short stories of some of the following Authors; Joyce Carol Oates “The Female of the Species.” 2005,The Ontario Review Inc. ” Where are you going, where have you been?” Joyce Carol Oates.1993,Ontario Review Press. Margaret Atwood,“Wilderness Tips.”1989,First Anchor Books Edition.There are short story authors in about every genre. Stephen king has published some, and also Clive barker, H.P.Lovecraft- all 3 of those are horror masters. The first two authors i mentioned write more in a narrative feminist way.

      I would also suggest SCI-fy to you: Check out Issac Asmaov? mispelt Ismolve? He wrote the book called IRobot-he is pretty famous i just cannot spell today. Ray Bradbury’s book called “The illustrated Man.” is also very good.

      But yes, basically a short story is like a mini version of a normal story. I like them because sometimes my attention span is not very long. Masters of the craft can write a short story between 50-500 maybe 1,000 words?In order to be brief you must make each detail count for something or else edit it out. Does that make sense? Did i address your question?

      • I think so. I was just wondering because of this contest that involved them. I think I would do well to read some examples like you said though, to see the succinctness of the flow. Thank you so much for all the info on it though. Very helpful!! Hope your day is going well ;0)

      • They are not the easiest thing to write. Follow contest guidelines about word limit-most have a maximum word count limit or even a requirement. MS word has a function that allows you to highlight your entire story then check word count.You are going to want to plan carefully in terms of plot, character development. Keep in mind most stories all have a beginning a middle and an end. Also remember the W’s: What, Why, where, When and also how. You should be able to find some examples of short stories for free off kindle or can use a local library. Also older authors such as Edgar Allan Poe and Franz Kafka are in the public domain. Kakfa wrote a famous short story called ,” The metamorphosis.” It’s main character wakes up one morning to discover he has turned into a giant cockroach.

      • Cool. Thank you. I will look into that and esp Poe. I love him :0). Thanks very much for your insight!

  2. Dear friend, Thank you very much, I was really happy to have been following your blog. I’m still a lot to figure out, and here I can only say that you are an awesome blogger, full Inspiring and hope you can inspire more readers. Thanks and greetings compassion from Gede Prama 🙂
