Well, my name is Camille and I am a 19 year old college student who loves to write.
I've been writing poetry for just about forever, but I only have works back to about
the end of '93. I won't go into to much boring detail about myself (I
don't want this to sound like a Classified or something, just as long as you know that
I am a Cancer (I'm really into the Zodiac and astrology), with an open
mind who is exploring life. Yeah, I know, it's cheesy but, what the hell,
I don't know you people. Anywaze, I hope you like my poems...if you don't,
I'd like to know why. If any of you out there are publishers or authors I would love to hear from you.
I am an aspiring author--not in the oh-I-wish-I-could-be-a-writer-and-plan-to-harrass-everyone-I-meet-until-I-get-a-break-sense,
but in the I-really-love-to-write-and-plan-to-someday-make-it-my-career-sense.
Any tips on starting out with fiction writing would be greatly apreciated,
as well as any feedback. One more thing: I don't believe TRUE poetry can ever be BAD.
Poetry is something that comes from one's mind, heart, and soul. There is no basis for measuring
one's feelings and emotions. I do admit that style, diction, and the MECHANICS of poetry as
a work of literature can be evaluated, but you cannot critique someone's voice.
