Greetings! I post quite a bit of poetry. However, I have anything and everything from short stories to Christian to Superhero stuff. If you are looking for any particular topic or genre, you can use the above tabs to browse that way. I am a twin, so sometimes my sister posts on my blog.
My blog’s title is in reference to a sermon series my pastor gave in January of 2015. I go to Tri- County Christian Church.
I chose this pen name because I LOVE Marvel comicbooks! (yes it is comicbooks, not comic books, just ask Stan Lee) My favorite super-powered character is a Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan). The second part of my pen name is Varietal which is the title of a novel that I’m writing and it is coming along nicely. I have about 100,000 words. However, my novel has since changed titles, but it is difficult to change my penname.
My little ‘tag’ line ‘The Unhippopotomonstrosesquipedaliphobia – A Witzelsucht’ means ‘The person who is unafraid of big words – a feeble attempt at humor.’ I have this as my tag line because I strongly believe that one has not truly lived until they have had an emotion that one cannot completely describe in one word. That is why I search for words that might describe such emotions to see if I have truly lived. Just a thought you might want to ponder when trying to fall asleep! Yeah, I don’t count sheep, I ponder the meaning of life – witzelsucht!
The gif above is my blog’s name and it is falling inward because I am finding my place and everything is fitting together. I have grown so much as a person, and writer, since I started this blog and the gif symbolizes that.
I used to have another Christian blog called ‘Citizen of Heaven’ which you can click here to see, but it got to be too much and I ended it.
If you would like to know a little more about me, read my poem My One Hundred Word Memoir.
If you would like to know a little more about my growth as a writer read my first memoir on this blog: I Look Back.
Why do I write? I write to express my thoughts and emotions in a way that only written words only can. I write to explore who I am and what makes me who I am. I write to press the borders of what is deemed normal.
I love to be able to create characters and ideas expressed where I don’t even know or feel the true meaning of them before they go from my fingers to the keyboard. The power of words whistle around me, the ideas carried with them dance in my imagination’s eye. Maybe word aren’t only meant to be a connection between people. Maybe words can be a connection between the back of the mind and the corner of the soul. Words can form a bridge between my imagination and my reality.
And just out of interest, how did you find me? Please comment, I really want to know! 🙂
