Hello, I’m CJ
I find that my written expression surpasses my verbal expression most of the time, so when there is something of vital importance to say (or something absolutely bizarre), it comes across better if I write it down. I am big fan of poetry and I’m not ashamed to say I love works that effectively use rhyme (there seems to be some stigma amongst ‘real’ poets). I have no delusions about my level of talent but I am able to enjoy my own work as a product of myself and I think that if you can enjoy your own creations, then you’re doing something right.
