My goal is to be a very open Author. Open with my mental illness, and the highs and lows of my art. With that said, I’m no way advocating what I do or the voice of people who suffer what I suffer. I am my own mess I took this picture when I was on a date, as he was taking a shower I took a picture of myself to pass the time. This picture struck me, because I caught a moment I don’t think I’ll ever see again on camera. Melancholy. I felt that way because I dated for the wrong reasons and began to feel empty because of it I came across an ad for a short story contest and my gut instantly told me to enter “that” story inspired by a St. Vincent song. I saved this picture all these years because I felt it was important. And now I know why, to give me inspiration. I’m not necessarily writing about myself or my life, but the certain emotions I felt at times. I mostly write off of what I feel, not what I experience. Sometimes I wonder if each character has a part of me, but, then I realize that I’m not that interesting, so it can’t be thatI find gay life to be empty, scary, shallow, and fickle. I tend to see the negatives more than the positives. I’ve always been a half-empty glass type of guy, so don’t take it personally. Now single, once again, I’m going to keep my goals focused and my stories 1. I know what I want and I know who I am, and love is not a part of that.
