irresponsible daydreamer, pirate, bad boy with clever charm, I always feel a connection with water: rivers, lakes, oceans, rain, waterfalls. I've been writing, mostly crap, since I was a little kid. Its an escape from me.

kinda all over the place, I bounce from interest to interest like a pinball, currently featuring wood, stone, Zen Buddhism, guitar, rebellion, smartassery, original art, cell phone resistance, a mad crush or two, feline persuasion
Favorite Books:
Les Miserables, Huckleberry Finn, Peter Pan, Anna Karenina, Early from the Dance, Catcher in the Rye, Under the Dome, The Boy in The Blue-Striped Pyjamas, I'll read just about anything even total crap just to see if it gets better. I have a vast book collection on a broad variety of subjects. Bet I have a book that will change your life. I could probably list another 100 books here.
Favorite Authors:
Chekhov, Dickens, Robert L. Stevenson, Victor Hugo, Guy de Maupassant, Mark Twain, Carl Hiassen, Elmore Leonard, Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes cartoonist...says more in 4 panels than I can write in a year), Robert Frost, Stephen King, Stieg Larsson, Basho, David Payne, Murakami
Favorite Movies:
I have a short attention span.
Favourite TV Shows:
I barely watch TV.
Favorite Music:
I listen to just about anything. Classic rock, a good torch song, not a big fan of rap/hip hop but I keep an open mind, in no particular order: Gregorian chants, Waterboys, old U2, Stones, Doors, Pink Floyd, Adele, Green Day, Guns n Roses, Dire Straits, Neil Young, Hendrix, Lykke Li, John Coltrane, Mazzy Star, REM, Lady Gaga (perhaps more for attitude than her music), John Lee Hooker, Matthew Good Band, treble charger, Headstones, Bedouin Soundclash, Replacements, hell all kinds of stuff...

Topic: What Would Your "Thing" Be?
Posted: 01 Oct 2018 18:03

I don't really have a thing but I find I have to be in a certain mood to write anything productive. Its more like 10 certain moods but they have a common thread of, I don't know, maybe a kind of energy flow. Yeah I know, I'm kinda odd. :)
