What was it about the group description that interested you?

I think that I enjoy that the range is from story telling to poetry, which are essentially one in the same. I lost me, and the "do you" portion might help me to reestablish "me" through inspiration of other like/life minded folks.

How long have you been writing and in what genre?

I've been writing for about 12 years and genre is slam, spoken word, rants with a bit of sarcasm, sarcasm with a bit of sarcasm, questions, comments, concerns. I have fallen in and out of love with writing for a long time. A little internal walls or whatever. I would like to get back into it and maybe surpass my own expectations and eventually get published.

Are you open to sharing a story or poem after you have attended a few meetings?

Of course, I'm not shy, I'm very charismatic but sometimes don't know how to channel the same energy in my head to the paper into a live performance. I also have not memorized a bunch of material at all, I feel a little goofy reading from the page.

Do you belong to other writer's groups?

Yes, a couple that I just signed up for.

Introduction

I'm Jay, I live in Fairview, TX. I have written a ton, recorded a little, performed very few, and am not very good at memorizing my own material. I think I have a loud projecting voice, with good thoughts, words, and handwriting.
