About this Person Who Writes   66 comments

In the words of Thomas McCauley: “perhaps no person can be a poet, or can even enjoy poetry, without a certain unsoundness of mind”

Yup, that’s me…

  1. I’ve wondered if the medication affects the writing….

  2. Hi, thanks for reading and following my blog. I agree wholeheartedly with what you say above: although I’ll never claim to be the best writer out there, I keep doing it because it is enjoyable. Here’s to persistence, both mine and yours!

  3. hi, I enjoyed visited your site and discovering your work. very special, you have the “passion”, it is clear. I love words too. What would life be without this expression. and yes, I do think that a certain “slant” of the mind is a prerequisite that seems to prompt the urgency and flow of dedicated writing and poetry. It comes from an ever raw sensitivity that pulses on its own. I don’t think that any of us can sleep, many norms never experienced….but the writing is the exchange. I would not give it up, hope I never would have to.

  9. Tony – thank you SO much for the nomination for Versatile Blogger! I am so grateful for your support of my blog – I love reading yours as well. As yet, I have not had enough time to give proper attention to enough blogs to pass along the award, but as I said in the note to you on my blog – maybe that should be my new year’s resolution! Again, I so appreciate the support – it means so much. All the best to you and keep up the fantastic writing. -erika

  12. “I wonder if the medication makes a difference”

    It depends on the dosage . . .

    I always just make sure I can still hear the words.

  15. Writing with or without meds is cool . . .
    Thanks and ~peace out to ya and lots of power to your blog 🙂

  16. I also started writing not because I know I’m good at it and I want to get profit from it– I wrote just because I want it, there’s a passion urging us to write and we enjoy it, that’s the most important 😀 I can see that in you too. You’ve written a lot and they’re good too! Good luck and thanks for liking my poem., looking forward for yours too ^_^

  17. Hello,
    Never stop saying what you feel, being who you are, living by your words, because we enjoy you being that way! love, Catherine

  19. When I read “About this person who writes” I have to admit it stopped me in my tracks and then a smile slowly crept across my face. Who determines what is good or bad poetry, all of the words mean something to someone somewhere. They are emotions expressed in ink or pencil or typed. No longer bound within our minds, coiled within our bodies. Some people use flowery words, some use simple words, but the bottom line is that they are using words. I love the way you use them, they make me think, make me realize, it’s that ah ha moment – Tia

  20. Many thanks for visiting my page and liking my post Tony. I am just very new to sharing my thoughts as they come..I am not good at framing the words into lucid lines, but have a passion in poetry. Greetings from Adelaide.-Dom

  24. thank you for stopping by at rashscribbles.wordpress.com ; appreciate your appreciation 🙂

  25. It’s that whole “Something important to say” thing that gets me… despite that my friends and relatives tell me over and over again that I should write… I haven’t found THE story (of mine) that NEEDS to be told… good for you, for writing because you have something to say!

    • It’s not “THE” story that needs to be told – to me it’s “A” story that needs to be told. Everyone has A story, and normally more than one and sometimes, we need to tell the story. I am sure you will have a story inside of you … tony
