Who Is This Kevin Guy Anyway???


Blog Posted:4/17/2011 5:46:00 PM
OK, so I'm getting out there and being seen now. Apprehensive at first, understandable, but doing well so far. No major issues other than a few individuals who believe writing poetry is not suited for "manly" men. In other words, repressed individuals with little depth and even less worthiness. For the most part though the response has been VERY positive, especially from true friends and my family...of course. By definition they are obligated to "like" my art...aren't they?? Now I've put my works out there for public display before, and always with glorious results and critique. Just never in such a personal forum, where people know who stoxback (my online identity) is. Not only can they now see who I am and what I do...I am asking them to "come check me out". Then there comes the blogging. Not putting my poetry on a blogging site, actually blogging ideas, and opinions and eventually life experiences (when I am comfortable enough). THAT'S another ball of wax entirely. Where did this come from? Never had an interest before this site, before this phase of my life. Then it dawned on me this morning. RIEHLIFE and the questions that will most assuredly come with. Being a guest blogger brought about insecurities I did not know I had. Never was an issue before, never had to write my life’s story or answer questions about my poetry. I just posted under stoxback, got much praise and accolades then slithered back into my life without others knowing any different. Now others will want to know who I am, where I'm from, when did you know you were a poet, how did you start, what is your..."process"? That's what I'm finding more difficult that more I dig into creating my bio, I DO NOT KNOW the answers to most of those questions!!! Yikes!!! I never had to know so I don't. Well, now I do need to know. There will be some soul searching over the next few days to few weeks so that I may discover who this Kevin Stock fellow really is. I think I've found the forum for this discovery. Writing isn't all that bad, although it's not as satisfying as my poetry! I hope to find myself on this blog over the course of time, come see who I am!One HUGE benefit from all this pain...I wrote my first poetry in over 4 years yesterday. It's called "Dandelion Seed". Tell me if my blogging is working!

    Welcome, Kevin, we are always glad to see a new name added to the Soup family, and will look forward to reading your poetry. I will repeat what Elaine has said below...poetry began to pour from my heart just a few years ago...however, I learned as a young girl to love music, and pay attention to the lyrics and the beauty of writing. Good luck! Carrie
