The idea is simple. My story belongs to me and yours belongs to you. When we share them, our experiences, that spins a real magic. No matter how many ways the world divides us, we are all human. I want to share the stories which make up who we are. Sharing them is what I love. Whether it is poetry, fiction, letters, or cryptic tweets on Twitter.
There is no right or wrong here. No judgment either. I (and hopefully we), will recount life. Embrace it. Feel it. Sometimes I will curse it. Even in the worst of times, I will love it.
I write for what ails me. Maddens, bores, or excites me. I write for what brings on a hot flood of tears, piques my interest, or reveals me in some way. I write to laugh until I am running to the loo. Leaves you spent.
