I'm me. I'm true to myself, and that's all that matters.
I tend to speak louder when I am upset or frustrated, and I do not like confrontation at all. One way that helps me to figure things out is to write, to help me remember and to relax. This is why I write. To know that I am not alone, that others have felt my pain, my joy, my laughter and tears. Even if they are just words, they have power, and are a driving force in my life, even if those who I would have read my work will never know it was written. I'm not very good with getting things out with the spoken word, and writing it down helps me to figure it out, and stops me from saying the wrong thing.
I am a plant geek. I love being outside, with any reason to get shamlessly dirty, and a lot of my writing takes it's images from nature, or from music. I read much more than is healthy for me. People who do not know me very well tend to see me as quiet, shy and maybe even a little snobish because I don't talk to many people, but my real friends know that this is all a load of crap. I am a bright, energetic, messy little lesbian. I talk a little too much sometimes, but there are still many times where I am indeed almost painfully shy, like when I'm in situations where there are people I don't know. I love love stories, and am a hopeless romantic, even if my most of my writing is done when I'm upset.
