Hello to all!
« on: November 02, 2011, 06:46:41 PM »
I'm quite new to this site (kind of obvious, hehe) found about it a few days ago. Since I had a bunch of poems I had written decided to join the writer's circle to share them with the public. I don't know what else to say. Maybe that i'm obsessed with Kate Bush, and black coffee? Hmm...I've got a black cat named Boris (named after Boris Karloff). I'm not very good with introductions...I guess if someone's interested in knowing more about me could pm me any time :)

Welcome aboard. I really love the fact that you have a cat named after Boris Karloff. Would you mind telling us about some of your favourite writers?

Well I like: Edgar Alan Poe, Marquis de Sade, Pynchon Thomas, Franz Kafka,
Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Kurt Vonnegut, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Haruki Murakami,
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Austen, Aldous Huxley, Albert Camus, Jean Paul Sartre, Nietzsche,
Suzanne Collins...and those are just but a few. I also am quite fond of Virginia Wolf,
Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire, and George R.R. Martin. I could go on forever.

;)

Have you ever read Clark Ashton Smith? I always ask this when people mention Lovecraft, they travelled in the same literary circles.

Welcome!

Since you're a poet why not consider diving right in and entering the current poetry contest?

Welcome to the forum, 13moonstreams!
There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present (unknown)

Money cannot buy happiness but somehow, it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes Benz than it is on a bicycle.
