Writing is that thing I’ve always done since I was a little kid. I’d write stories then eagerly design book covers. And since writing was one of those things that came naturally, it was one of those things I took for granted. Poems were always scribbled on paper, short paragraphs of a story idea from time to time.
For years I struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. Struggled with my sexual identity. All those growing pains we each face under our own set of circumstances. Then as I got better, the writing quickly came back. It became that thing again, that thing that brought me back to life and gave me a sense of self.
