In the beginning, there was a word.
Blogging. Everyone seems to be doing it. Naturally I told myself that I wouldn't participate, yet here I am. As of now I want to use this space to expose my poetry and short stories to anyone who will look. I would love feedback and critique (good and bad). I just want people to read my wordart--the random pieces that have been lost, found, edited, re-edited, and have become apart of my writing biography. Currently, I'm working on a hybrid novel for my senior thesis. It's about a nanny in gentrifying Brooklyn. It's considered hybrid because in addition to traditional narrative (with some emails dispersed), some chapters imitate the style of the self-help book, What to Expect in the First Year. There's also a subplot written in the style of parent list serve/blogs. I've been working on it for close to a year and this is a picture of my work station. Gives you a little idea of my manic method.
