Profile Information

I'm a realist and yes I do ramble, but I have so many thoughts trying to push and shove to be the first to get to my mouth or to my hands to write things. That is why it comes out less than perfect...well I'm not really perfect am I? Sure, I have a very vivid imagination, unlimited creativity, however I like to always look back and make sure what I say and do are founded on truth. I don't really call myself an artist nor do I label myself as writer, but I do relish creating stories about whatever comes to my mind at the moment. Writing and playing with words is an art. With art, some may like it some may not. Art has become a business where publishing, marketing, with everyone wanting to make a buck, and yes where everyone is a critic. Somehow art isn't so fun and free as it used to be with the pressure to compete and get money. Yes, we need to make a living and of course rules are needed for structure, however with art we can't get so enveloped in the pursuit of prestige and following rigid rules in a field that is supposed to let you be free to express. So many govern their artwork by so many regulations and standing by the rules that can be  twisted and bent.  Anyway, I like to think I am a writer and me being this said writer, I like to paint with words, to fill the sense just by piecing and stringing together letters, words, sentences, paragraphs and pages, (never mind that they can be horribly wrong in format) each sentence is a brush stroke. I like to tell all who would listen to read my words and see the world like I see it and how I want it to be. That is who I am and you know what, I am still discovering more so, if anyone likes, stay tuned for the sequel.
