- What’s the best thing about writing?
Capturing observations. A moment or a musing. Emotional sandstorms. Arranging the elements into a meticulously multicolored image of some specific thing and how it happens.
- What are you doing when you’re not writing?
Forgetting the things I’m not writing. Making a mess and cleaning up most of it.
- Describe your thoughts on writing (either your own or in general) using no verbs.
Passion and compassion for the story of everything in everything. Nearly everything and next to nothing in words, all at once, at the mercy of focus. References to common knowledge and experience as perfect emblems of the state of social order and self, in the context of nature and time. The hot chocolate warmth of self recognition in a perspective or character. The importance of honesty and the allure of deceit.
- What is it about your discipline (fiction/poverty/nonfiction/other) that draws you to it?
Resonance in ripples. Every interpretation and placement, on purpose, meant to be any and every way it could be. Poetry speaks for us our quiet screams–and I feel we are living through a time deafened by quiet screams, and that maybe poetry is due for a renaissance in an age of awareness.
- How’s the whole writing thing working out?
It’s fun to have ideas, and my incubator is strong.
