This is my first post, so I guess I should say a little about myself or, rather, about my particular interests in writing. I really do love all kinds of creative writing--fiction and poetry, and even personal essays--and even dabbled a bit in all of these, but for a very, very long time (since I was 16) I have been working on a small collection of "thought pieces," seven interconnected essays on a kind of "mystical logic." I won’t get into it here, but it's something that's been perpetually growing, transforming, and morphing for years. And, after all this time, I still feel the need to get it out, whether or not it comes to anything beyond my own desire to simply organize, refine, and polish the "work" that seems to expand and escape from within me with the same potency it had over thirty years ago (although rarely in the same precise words or even the perfect medium of thought-presentation and, yet, always with the same powerful ideas and concepts that have remained unchanged and true to its foundation since the very beginning). Anyway, I’m just hoping that after I’ve had time to “look around” here and maybe give a little input that I’ll be able to share some of what’s dying to get out in the best possible literary form. I’ll lurk around and hope for the best. Thanks.
