The Sad Truth About a Writer’s Mind

I live in Missouri, a more beautiful place than many realize. I love writing, reading, walking, bicycling, and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I also perpetually have a novel in progress. My brain pursues ideas at a brisk pace, wandering all over the map. This blog represents one of my efforts to keep up with it.

One thought on “The Sad Truth About a Writer’s Mind”

  1. I frequently have the same experience. I’m often seen scribbling notes at social functions. Sometimes I think reality isn’t real until it’s been turned into art, but that’s probably just a rationalization.
