What is your motivation for writing?
There are ideas and emotions that I want to explore and share. Sometimes, it just comes pouring all out and needs some polishing (rewrites). Other times, while I may have a topic finding the words to convey exactly what I have to say is a much longer struggle. I also push for a balance between having a literary flair and not being pretentious.
Do you remember the first poem you ever wrote?
Yes, I was in grade school and became fascinated with haiku
