I am a poet. I have put my hand to other things, but I have always been a poet.

My personal writings are angsty and sometimes dark, but my professional pieces are a bit lighter. I am categorized, like many, as "undefined". I used to consider myself a literalist - simple metaphors where necessary, but primarily, painting easy to understand pictures in easy to read pieces, but my life is changing and so is my voice. Who knows where I will end up next, if anywhere.

I started writing before I knew how to properly spell at 7 and it has suckt with me throughout my adult life.

I wrote my first poem about my new sister at 7 and finished my first children's story at 8. I was published at 9 and dropped off until I was 13.

I had my first adult publishing experience at 19 when a piece of mine was inked in a local paper. I continued writing methodically and religiously until my mid 20's where my personal life took precedence and I had to set my pen down. I did not write again for several years.

I am now in my 30's and the lit bug is secured with two hands. I will work diligently to ensure it stays where it is.

I am through my final examinations for my Handelsfachwirt, and decided to study trade management. Gonna be a blast, and awesome and all, yet terribly time-consuming. :) I haven't written anything in what does not only feel like ages, though, and that sucks. But yeah.. money. Yay. :P

I just posted a bit but I have thought of giving dA up. I am veering in a direction of food science and I just don't have the time. I just don't want to lose some of the contacts I have made on here so I will be here now and then.

How's life treating you? I took a full-time job with a customer care center recently so my time in regards to writing has become almost non-existent. Miss chatting with you and hope all is well.

Life is treating me well as of recently. I have been working my arse off for months and months, but it is paying off. I miss writing though, and try to fit time in whenever possible... hopefully a lot more when I'm finally done with my further education. :) 

I'm glad to hear you found a job that pays (apart from writing)! :P I have been on the LitRecog chat for the last couple of days, but it appears to have been abandoned.. :(

I hope to hear from you more often. :hug:

I am able to write at work. I take product calls for a grocer answering recipe questions and taking complaints about the products. I have no free time anymore, or so it seems. I started a book, but I am not sure it will get anywhere as every time I have a coherent thought is it interrupted by the phone. :(

Drop me a line every so often to let me know you are alive and well and I will try to do the same. I think I have lost track of nearly everyone on here. :(
