Tis me, the Beany Friend!

Hey! I see you've found my About page. And I bet you didn't think anything about that opening statement, but ya know, I'll never actually know you were here, so that was a lie. I have established myself from the outset as a liar. Also probably a bit odd, but, perhaps I am. Allow me to present myself in a more normal fashion with a few fun facts.

- I'm a poet! I love writing poetry even more than fiction.
- But I also enjoy writing short stories. Haven't actually finished a novel or novella yet, but I have one of the latter in progress.
- I am very much an editor. I love self-editing and helping others edit their works!
- tea
- I have a strong, very random and mostly useless interest in all things old nautical.
- Ich sprecke ein bischen Dutch!
- teeeaaaaaaa
- I'd take a cool, gray, windy day near the water over a warm, sunny one.
- I can and will psychoanalyze you if the whim strikes me.


Interests

Poetry ~ Editing ~ Lake and ocean life ~ Gardening ~ Social, intrapersonal, trauma psychology ~ Personality theory ~ Drawing, acrylic paints ~ Classical piano, classical guitar ~ All things language/linguistics


An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backwards. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that life's going to launch you into something great, so just focus and keep aiming.
