    I think I have found my "voice".

    I just need to raise it a few octaves, learn a couple more dialects and learn when just a whisper will do instead of an out loud scream. I write in prose, verse, narrative & song because the words are always finding their way out of me...and I fear what would happen if I let...

    and I need some readers to let me know if what I've got so far is moving in the right direction. Comment or shoot me a message if you're up for reading a "hot off the presses", Craig Newman original.

    You can't just write it .

    You have to craft it, chisel it, making sure the voice doesn't stammer about like it's lost in a crowd. You have to bring yourself to pull off the layers, find the pieces that fit and glue it back together again. Sometimes you'll have to crush your words with a mortar and...

    As an 8yr old, I wrote a bit of poetry.

    In song format. But when I chose to share -with the adult in my life who was Supposed To & Claimed To love me the most- she huffed dismissively: "What Is this nonsense?! I don't have time for This..." And, apparently, it crushed my li'l heart. For, from that point forward...

    I don't think when I write my poetry. I feel my feelings and let my pen do the thinking while I look the other way. I honestly have no clue what I've written until I know I'm finished with it... and usually, when I'm severely depressed, that's when I do my best writing. Although...
