people often claim that I think too much, to which I reply if you thought half as much as I did you might not be stupid. so I say to you dear reader or if I am lucky readers, when it comes to people keep your expectations low and trust no one.

not sure who said this "it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than it is to speak and remove all doubt"

or this"never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you senseless with his experience"

I find it best to speak in generalities. for example: I generally don't jump off cliffs without a parachute. this leaves wiggle room which is very important when dealing with devils or gods.

not sure who said this either "those that fear the darkness have never seen what the light can do"

I have never eaten a live baby.....see that's funny because you have to cook them first lolololol

nothing is worse than being stagnant. embrace chaos like you would anything....in moderation.

 just how weird am I. I had a dream where I went to a park and Charlie sheen was doing stand up for a small group of people sitting on some bleachers. and this is the joke I here him tell. "so you have people that say they are women trapped in a mans body. so what happens when two people that are women trapped in a mans body get together. there not gay if they are women are they lesbiens if they have the wrong piping. I propose we call people in this situation gaybiens." no one is the crowd laughed and he tapped his microphone saying is this thing on

 

 


An Open Invitation to All


Blog Posted:1/31/2013 9:16:00 AM
So I heard a saying that "Those that can write- write and those that can't become critics." Since I can't write I have decided to try being a critic. I am looking for volunteers to offer up themselves in this endeavor. Simply soupmail me your age, how long you have been writing, and a general synopsis on what you are trying to accomplish with your writing. The only guidline is that you must have atleast fourty poems posted, but like a said that is a just a guidline. I will take my time to read and evaulate your entire body of work and not indivual poems though I may use excerpts of your work in my final write up that I will post in a blog so that everyone can judge how I have done. I repeat this is an open invitation to everyone, I will not be playing favorites and will be as unbiased as possible. I will be operating on a first come first serve basis as well. I will also be posting the general synopsis at the begining of my review so please do not send anything unappropriate. I will be far kinder to those that are young and have not been writing much than those that are far older and have been writing thier whole lifes. My intent though will to offer constructive criticism or praise not to offer my opinion.  I hope to make this a worthwile endeavor for all involved. Thank you for your time.

    Okay, Nathan... I'll take you up on this....although I probably have less than 20 poems posted at this time. I have 3 books that have been published, so you may rest assured that I have written far more than forty poems. I do ask, although, that you do not include "Violet Shades" in your critical analysis, as it is simply personal, and not so much a poem. Also, "Merry Christmas" is just a link I shared, and not a poem... so I guess there are only about 15 poems there, but still I would like to hear your opinion. Hey! At least I'm giving you somewhere to start....:)
