My pen name is Amanuensis Sobriquet-Reverie. Why the anonymity? Freedom to express what I need to get out of my head without fear of having it used against me…again. It’s such a long story, with drama, angst and tears. Maybe I’ll write more about it, but probably not here.
Writing has been part and parcel of my life since I was very young. I started reading early, so I started writing early too. It was much easier than talking. I could only find some of my older writings from junior high mixed in with my doodles and sketches. I’m an artist, musician and mother as well. My brain seems divided into slices dedicated to my art, music, children, and writing. I’ve got left brain-right brain dominance issues. There’s always more swirling around in my head, but I’ve tried to limit what I can do within this lifetime.
I started a blog in September 2014 after going to a writing group for years. It was suggested that I start a blog so that I could present my writing in a format that is better suited for my style of essays, diatribes and prose poems. I write my dreams, nightmares, feelings, and weird observations about my life in general. I’m a photographer too, so I usually post one of my photographs with every post.
I do not post with regularity. My schedule does not allow for that. I may write once a day, but I don’t always post a blog. I’d like some feedback about my blog, since I’m not able to link to my facebook account it would be nice to have a wider audience. So, there ends my why and wherefore.
