If you would like a formal critique on one of your pieces, please note :note: me. i would prefer it be poetry, as that would be most along the lines of something i am knowledgeable enough in to thoroughly critique, but i am open to at least attempting any and all styles of art.
‘Cause I’m not like you, I’m not made for this world,
though I’ve been through what you’ve been through:

        a long line at the gate
where a disgruntled man of three and eight
    asks his phone 'please hold and wait',
entitledly turns towards me to state:
        “*clears throat*
excuse me son, this place doesn’t fit me quite right
so, if you don’t mind, I’d prefer a new one, by tonight." 

I’ll watch the new world unfurl -
Identical to the old one: swine and pearls,
                without the pearls.

Why does emotional duress or hardship seem to correlate with inspiration for writers to write?

More and more I am seeing titles directly referencing suicide or pieces captioned with 'not in a good place' or 'not doing well' - not to say any of this is a bad thing in and of itself, just that it seems remarkably prevalent.

is it catharsis? an attempt to achieve a higher understanding of ourselves? a way to connect with others, the way all connections seem to establish themselves, through shared experiences?

I've heard that many artists purposefully put themselves in situations knowing that it will hurt them so that they can write about it - the tortured soul of an artist. Has anyone found this true in their life?

If I'm ever sad, I don't do much of anything aside from strum minor chords on a guitar, drink coffee, and wish my temporary residence allowed me to have a feline friend.

Still missing bees. buzz buddies 4eva.

Hey All!

I'm a happy-go-lucky kid who spends all of his money on music - the darkest & most esoteric he can find, with occasional piercing rays of sunshine - who constantly feels at ends with his interests and the societies they place him in, & who doesn't really feel like he truly belongs anywhere, but is super happy to be where I am.

I am currently a Swing (Poetry & Prose) Admin over at DailyLitRecognition. I'm more a poetry guy than a prose by preference of comfortability, but I promise to look at and consider anything and everything suggested to me.

Along with LitRecognition not accepting FanFics or chaptered work, I'm pretty picky about what I feature, but if you come across a piece that blew you away, I wouldn't be surprised if it does the same for me. I'm not much of one for emotional pieces and tend to have a more dark, existential, and modern preference - though there are certainly exceptions to every rule [thanks English language]!

So if you come across anything that inspires you, please note me with a link to the piece as well as your reasoning behind why this piece has earned the honor of a DLD (this will greatly increase its chances of being selected) and I'll see what I can do. =D

Wow! :wow:
I love your writing! It's a beautiful mix of vague descriptions, repeition, and imagery words that tell stories that I read over and over.
I enjoy your writing so much, and look forward to more of it. :heart:

Great pieces such as what you wrote suggest themselves, I was just honored to be the middle man in the process.

You seem like a really cool person, from what I've seen in your deviantID and all :D keep it all up! youre already famous and all, right? I mean..right? ;)
Carmalain7 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015
I don't know about 'really cool' or famous, but I seem to be doing well enough for myself, so that's been nice. So long as I can keep affording rent, shows, and records, I think that's about as much fame I need.

But I'm honored by the watch, good miss. With all the outrageously talented people here on dA, for you to take a moment of your time to watch me and my works, it's a true honor.

Thank you. :thanks:
