Hi Thank you for the forum. I use two pen names, William Perkins and Ralph Wood. I write poetry, philosophy and social commentary. I am a widower, lone dad and a practicing buddhist. I am recently unemployed, by choice, and looking to build a portfolio of work to sell. I got sick of the rat race and the corporate machine so I am finally trying to earn a living doing something I love. Please be gentle! How is copyright protected on the forum.
