Screw Skinny-Dipping, It’s all about Skinny Diving!
So, it begins. I am now attempting to be a part of the fast paced, ever-developing online world of expression.
As a writer, I like to keep things personal. So taking this leap to open expression is a massive step for me… exposing myself naked to the world to view me in my deepest, rawest form.
I feel like I’ve chosen to go skinny dipping, taking my first dive into the Ocean, from great heights (so skinny-diving you may wish to call it!) Yet as a personal obstacle, I am ready to overcome it. I do like a good challenge!
IronicInspirations – this isn’t just a creative writing blog. It’s a means of creative expression containing all forms of art. The inspirations spur from every corner the wandering eye can see; a Coca-Cola can, a social group’s dynamics, the pavement, skyline or passing buses.
Inspirations, mine and the World’s, can derive from some of the most unexpected places and times.
I am not trying to promote myself as the next up and coming writer. I am in no illusion – I have many flaws! I blabble. I am not always relevant. I can sometimes throw up onto the page, without realising what I have even written.
But all my creations are representative of the times in which I wrote them and the expressive journey I have always wanted to embark on.
I love learning, reading and exploring the lives and understanding the way other people work. Not in a psychotic psychological way, but in an exploration into the internal vs external battles that humanity has with the world.
My chosen weapon of expression is poetry, but I love to try my hand at anything, reviews, articles, short stories, photography. I love experimenting.
There is so much to the World that is often lost at the glances we take at it.
Not all of my work is researched or derived from a long interest.
Some of my best writing exists through a spur-of-the-moment urge to explode onto the paper. The paper within my many notebooks where these thoughts lay, be them fact, fiction or an intertwining version of reality.
I wish you luck in decoding my life and hope you enjoy the thoughts and creations that await.
Please feel free to get in contact if you have any questions, responses, information or advice.
Lots of love,
