Quick Bio : [ CleoCollier ]
Life Story:I Know
Why try to be clever? I have 6 boys, am a grandma, (thru my cool stepson), and am one fun chick.
I also have 2 black cats-one indoors & 1 out. I am not a witch.
I love music, poetry, and sci-fi not necessarily in that order. My man is the absolute hottest and tenderist, & smart assed-but he is sooo modest. He won't agree with that.
Do you believe this?> In cyberspace no one can hear you lie.
Why I Write:
As in Andrew Hudgins' poem "Grandmomma's Toenails"..."Some need to get the inside out. I need to get the outside in".
I write to assimilate experiences. To know a thing or feeling or person better. I write to bring a human empathy to something I am struggling to not hate. I saw someone compare their writing to a baleen whale gorging on all kinds of particles, then producing nourishment/a poem out of the detritus. That's how I'd like to be.
I also write for fun. To play word games, to be quirky. To be unexpected. I, too, am a vocabulary whore, and love to use words that are new to me. If an author has me checking my dictionary every chapter at least, I will keep coming back for more.
I have to say I've also taken out my sword & tried to artfully slash a yippy dog of a person to ribbons. More than once. It feels so good!
Happy writing to everyone! It's great therapy! And if it's shared with another sufferer, it can be so edifying!
So standard you don't even want to know. Maybe I should get into accordian playing. Now THERE's a hobby you can share with EVERYONE! Because who doesn't love a good polka?!
General Personality/What makes you unique?:
People open up to me. I am like a truth serum. I am very interested & discreet about people's personal happenings. Children out of the blue ask me about life's issues. I am positive & try SO DAMN HARD to not be judgemental. I know that I am...a little.
Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3 It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
