I write I breathe as simple as that. I draw inspiration from everywhere and am way too old to fangirl but it doesn't stop me. Words are the most powerful thing in the universe and I love nothing more than being armed and dangerous.

Jim Jarmusch said - " Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: "It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to."

So I hope to take things from life and imagination and inspiration and lead them into interesting places. I've been writing a little fan fiction but I love all genres and have a few different ideas at various stages of development. Some of my stuff is unapologetically Australian - I can't help that - it's where I'm from and where my basic inspiration comes from. My favourite Wattpaders to read and be inspired by are the amazing @Circa1927, @Bluebelle84 and @redwritinghood09 - I'm on Wattpad because of these three amazing writers.

My partner in crime is often the amazing Maria "Ria" Sutton and we can be found lurking on dark corners of Facebook - plotting (stories mostly).

A little piece from me - not a story more an outpouring of emotion. You'll find it in my Higher ground file and it's basically dealing with feelings that arise on the birthday's of people you can't c...
