Hello everyone. I stumbled upon this site as I was perusing the internet in search of places I could post my writings. I've always enjoyed writing. It's been my outlet for many years. When I was growing up I found it difficult to express myself in words. My mind races from one thought to another and before I can rarely complete a coherent sentence without my speech being interrupted by a myriad of other thoughts. But writing has always given me focus and direction. I can sew together my fragmented thoughts and create something beautiful out of the chaos. My favorite form of writing is poetry and prose. I naturally gravitate toward classic poets such as Poe, Shakespeare, Tennyson, Lord Byron, and Percy Shelly. I also enjoy writing short stories and research papers, though I would like to better my aptitude in these areas.
