Intro to cd

leave a comment »

I’m cd (aka Chels). I’ll be joining in on this crazy ride (with a small hiatus from 2.6-2.13) with the rest of the gang. I, like many hanging out here lately, am a Wesleyan alum and did a bunch of creative writing stuff there. However, when I look back on it, I feel like I backslid on my writing during college. Suddenly, when I got out, I couldn’t just sit down and write a poem…it had to be all these things, say all these things. I had all these voices in my head telling me what and how I should be writing; for a while I stopped. But things are picking up again; I can hear my own voice more clearly, and it’s nice. I’d say my style is pretty relaxed…I’m thinky, but I want it to be accessible. I’ve always said that I want my poems to be the kind that my mom and grandmother would read. That said, hope you enjoy my contributions. Any and all criticism is welcome.
