Favorite Short Stories and Poetry on Booksie:
All the Poetry written by ValeriyaPonomar for it is all really great!!!
As well as all the Poetry by Little Blue Bird for hers is deep and dark. Right up my alley.
Also, go check out Malaxter. I think I've read and liked every poem that guy's, probably, ever written.
Go check all these guys and their pieces out. They really are all wonderful.
Much of my work is pretty dark, perhaps disturbing even, but please let's remember people, that these are works of fiction. And even though I may have been inspired by things I've seen or feelings I've felt, i doesn't mean that I'm actually depressed. Well, maybe I am a little. From time to time. Per usual.
I am very much a fan of Stephen King, or any horror writer for that matter, probably why my work is the way it is, and I am slowly working my way through his books. I believe I'm on my 37th one now, the Bachman book collection (rage, the long walk, roadwork, and the running man), and I recently finished Firestarter and "It" before that; both were amazing by the way. Very powerful. His wife and son are both incredible, as well. But I enjoy many different genres, as I said in my one poem's introduction, I'm also reading the Lord of the Rings right now, too. And i recently bought "Holes", used, for like a dollar; and I wouldn't be surprised if I read that one too.
I am an umemployed bricklayer, struggling to find work, and have been looking for a while now. It's quite frustrating, but at least it gives me plenty of time, and much inspiration, for spitting out my written works. I enjoy writing, though know, i could and should be a lot better at it. The Gollum poem I recently wrote, was particularly fun to write.
Anyway, a little about myself:
I love pizza, and watching movies. I actually aspire to write or direct movies one day, though as i get older that dream seems to slip further and further away. I had hoped maybe writing could be the hidden back door into that field as so many before me have already found. One comes to mind, obviously, Mr. King. Through his words and inspiration and his writing tips, I've been trying to follow the dream ever since. But every year goes by, and the reality sets in that it is probably just that; nothing but a pipe dream. I keep getting off track, whoops! I enjoy much tv and music. I really love Big Bang Theory (Bazinga!), and just about everything on TBS. Including their recent show, that just ended Thursday, the King of the Nerds. I really enjoyed watching it. But I like a little of everything. Same goes for music. My favorite has to be DMB though, for I've seen them more than any other band, I think 8 or 9 times. But I like a wide variety, from classical to country. Though really not that much country, there's only a few songs I can stand, the rest I really could do without. But i like to say and use the word 'howdy'. Go figure! I can't stand tomatoes. but love pretty much anything you can make out of the fruity, little bastards. I don't mind tomato soup, but hate tomato juice. It's weird, I know, and I really don't understand it either. As for movies, you probaby guessed it, I like horror. But I love most movies, really. To me they are almost like works of art in a museum, even the bad ones that most people hate, must be good and have at least some merit; for they are hanging in the very same museum. So props to anyone that's been involved in any moving picture artform and got recognized, whether good or bad. You're still in the spotlight. At least, the spotlight of my mind.
