The ever interesting Scarlet A. Rhiannon nominated me for the Mystery Blogger award and much as I appreciate the nomination I literally just did this yesterday. However, since she so graciously nominated me it would be churlish to completely decline. So I will answer the questions she posed.
These were her questions:
- Why do you blog the way that you do?
This is a interesting question. I first started this blog with the intention of rededicating myself to poetry. A emotional outlet and skill I had allowed to lapse and one that I wanted to pursue again. So I started writing M/W/F because I knew without a schedule that I would grind down and eventually stop writing again. As I went along I decided that any time I had something to say I’d publish it. That has led to numerous short stories, four erotica serials and 3 audio serials that became the Split Sky trilogy pages.
Then I decided to do a poem a day for Poetry Month(April). I have done more and more poems per day during that month(in addition to normal posts) and I nearly died, figuratively, while writing 4 poems per day. But it did teach me to write anywhere, any when. And that continues to this day where I will write all the time.
So I blog according to my schedule and I blog whenever I have a thought that becomes a thought or rant or poem or just a post of what I just dreamed.
All poems are literally what I am feeling right at that moment and are autobiographical. So in a way it is also therapy for someone who would never trust a therapist. I don’t know if that answers the question but I think it’s somewhere in there. Or maybe it’s just that I want to create something beautiful and I hope that something I create causes shivers down the spines of others.
- What is your useless super power?
This may not seem useless but it is the ability that has proven to be the least useful. Occasionally, I can look at a person and see the entire skein of their lives unfold. It’s generally just a glimpse that leaves me with an impression but since no one believes me when I tell them what I saw, it’s mostly useless.
- What is the Greatest thing to ever happen to you?
The greatest thing was that Morgan asked me to dance. This also led to my greatest tragedy.
- Do I believe in miracles?
No. I don’t believe in miracles as some wondrous mysterious event that occurs. I believe in power and those who wield power. Are there wondrous things and beings? Sure. Do they wield power for their own reasons and to their own ends? Yes. But miracles as most understand them? No, I don’t believe in them.
- What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Well, presumably, I won it somehow because that is no where close to my income level. So right away I would pay taxes on the sum. Now I have roughly 600K. I would then give my mother 60K because I have a long standing agreement with her that any funds I win, she gets 10%. My fortune will be her fortune. I would then pay off my debt. Then I would chop the remainder in half. I would invest that half in such a way that I begin receiving income from the funds. The remaining amount I would buy myself a new truck, mines pretty old. Then I would fly out to Texas and visit with some friends. While there, I would buy my good friend a new car because she deserves some joy. And I would visit with her until I knew what to do next.
