Hi everybody! I have been writing for over 30 years, purely for my own enjoyment. Six years ago I sought out evaluation for my growing archive of work and was especially fortunate to find a small effective forum that proved invaluable. Sadly, it is now defunct which is how I find myself here. I hope to have a similarly enjoyable and productive experience, and hopefully contribute positively to others. The bulk of my completed writing consists of poetry, or more precisely, poetry intended as song lyrics. Anything I eventually post is part of my copyrighted collection. Some selections are purely poems, some are purely lyrics, some are harder to categorize solely as either. The underlying theme of most is conflict. I sporadically work on writing short stories or my one idea for a novel. Hoping to make some new friends here - or maybe even stumble over an old one?
