About This Work

I write because I have the belief that I have to write, even if that is not true. I get pleasure from people I do not know contacting me and saying they enjoy what I write and also from editors accepting what I write and sometimes very strange but true thoughts. I am lucky that I don't have to bow down to people to do my job, I write so I am a writer - that simple. 

 


 

Composer

Compose
that is what it says at the top of the email
I am a composer now.
I see myself as more of a creator
but there you go.
After all
they are just words
they don't mean anything
do they.
You can say anything
to anyone
and nine times out of ten you get away with it. All you have to do is have faith
faith with the words that come out.
Once they are out
i always feel better.
Composed.
