I now have five (5) books of poetry that have been published. The first book "For Love To Live" is no longer in print. My latest book "I Gave You Hot Soup" is now available for purchase on It can be found under the title listed above. Every poem that is in the book was written since I became of member of FanStory and the lessons that all of you have helped me to learn went into the book. For that I thank you all.

nomi338: My new profile thought is not original, but I like it. So, I am using it anyway. It is: Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.

    mrsmajor: May not be original, but I'm sure in agreement with it...

nomi338: I recently arrived at the conclusion that a man may change the way he looks, but the only real meaningful change occurs when he changes the way he thinks.

nomi338: I fell in love with this quote from activist Angela Davis. "I no longer accept the things I cannot change, I now want to change the things I cannot accept." Genius.

nomi338: To be able to form coherent thoughts and to have the ability to put those thoughts down on paper and also to be able to comment on the expressed thought of others is a gift not to be under valued. I struggle to say only things that uplift and upbuild when I comment on the work of others, because who needs to be attacked or torn down. That should never be what any of us are about. Those that enjoy attacking the work of others should leave this site and never return.

    michaelcahill: Yes. Perfectly said. And YOU should never leave.

nomi338: When the desire to write equals the ability to write that one must write constantly. The urge to write will not be suppressed or denied in any way. I wake up from my sleep with an idea and I must write it down. Riding in a car, walking down the street. At any time or place I write. I have to.

    I am Cat: Me too! Me too! ;)

    michaelcahill: Yep, agree. Of course, I've had some dates that didn't appreciate it ... I think they were critiques.

    mrsmajor: Yep there's a small notebook every where in my house...Everywhere!!...LOL

nomi338: I have been writing poetry since 1957. I have written four books of poetry that were published by America Star Books Inc. My fourth book's title is "My Three Phases." I am still working on my life story. The story is not that hard for me to tell since I was there for every moment that took place. I am afraid that I might have adult ADHD, I get easily distracted.
