About

Serious about writing, can talk for any length about styles and ideas and philosophical thought processes. Sometimes I don't understand myself.
I am a writer at heart. I read all sorts and have a whole pile to catch up on. Looking to meet other like-minded and other-minded writers. Interesting people who have an opinion!

    Ups! I talk a lot (and that shows in my writting ajajajaj)!

    I'm seriously intrigued with you! I mean even in a simple comment, it shows that your a good writer!
    Well right now I do have a little project, I'm writting about me (jajaja sounds a bit egocentric huh?). I decided to do this because my family is the perfect example of a disfunctional family, my parents divorced (and their story is even longer and more disfunctional), I don't speak to my father (and he doesn't seem to care), and to top my list my brother and I don't get along; nevertheless my mother is the craziest and coolest person I could have ever wished for! She acts like a teen, plays the guitar (she's the one who teached me) and when I say plays the guitar I mean songs from: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Guns n' Roses, The Vines, Pearl Jam, etc... I can talk to her about anything and she understands me better than anyone! By the other hand my love life is a mess, here goes an example... I date a guy, everythings fine for a couple of weeks, then out of nothing I feel that it's time to stop seeing each other (I do this not on purpose, seriously), and when that happens I mess up his life somehow and does one of two things: ethier pursue me or hate me, and the worst part is that I always bump into him whether in a month of even a year. And this happens with ALL the guys I date. The thing is; I don't do it on purpose I just simply haven't found a person that understands me (all guys seem too superficial).
    So this kind of weird life needed to be a story people can relate themselves to, so I began writting about me. My project has fun stories, sad happeninds, deep thoughts, weird stuff, and serious things... all this crazy things that people can read about and laught or cry.

    And taking the music business back into the conversation... I'm love with music & writting that's the only love I'm certain about. I learned to play guitar when I was 13 (same age my mother did jajaja), I used to write lyrics. My life is a constant tune jajaja. But write now I don't play music, I just use it as inspiration. By the way, what you said about Music existing before us makes me suspect that you are in love with music as much as I am. That was the most beautiful and powerful thing that someone can say about music! I like the fact that you're a philosophical thinker, it gives me hope in humanity jajaj, I thought there weren't much people like you left (I infer about you, so far).

    Changing subject, I do intend to ask for your help when I'm writting. You seem like a very good writer (I'm sure people tell you this often jajaja)!
    Keep in touch! I wanna know more about you!
    adieu!

    Sorry if my profile threw you out, it has taken me two days to get on, and I suspect I am only on now because it's late and there isn't any one else on. If I ever get my hands on that gremlin ....
