All the opinions and perspectives published here are mine, I take responsibility for them. What works for me might not work for you, that does not mean that my process is better than yours, it doesn’t mean that the way you do things is “wrong.” If you have a writing process or an opinion that is different from mine, please share it with me, I love being exposed to different perspectives. But if you’re snotty about it, I will delete your comment. Fair?

I am always down for making new friends and getting into discussions about writing and cats and pretty much everything else (as long as you aren’t snotty about it) but I also have a full-time job, technically two full-time jobs, and if it takes me a while to get back to you please don’t think I’m ignoring you, I just have a shit ton to do and writing and earning money for cat treats takes priority. Otherwise, I get mauled by an angry Russian Blue.

Feel free to share my posts and use my poems for anything you like as long as you cite your sources. My poems are free but they are also mine. Put my name on them.

And, lastly, a content disclaimer: the content on this site contains mature language and mature themes (references to death, graphic violence, and maybe even sex if I ever get around to writing that erotica novel I’ve always wanted to write). You have been warned.
