I'm growing up in Amarillo, Tx. I've always been introverted and as my aunt says, "Has always had an intellectual side." I seem to have always felt things a little more fully to myself than others. At the same time, that is only my veiw.I know that I can't know how others feel. It's upsetting though sometimes as I don't have much of a social life as result.I don't talk at school. I can go hours without saying anything. I spend most of my time taking notes on my surroundings and thoughts. The friends I have are very special to me and infuence my writing to no end.
Thinking about that, my major influences are of course my friends, but it's also my family, experiences, nature, other poetry, Dreams, Love, Media, ...everything. I absorb the world around me and am never fighting for inspiration. My biggest rule in my writing is, "If It's not honest, It's good. If I'm afraid to write it, It's better."
