On Being a Twisted Writer



Welcome to the Twisted Writers!  Hopefully you had a chance to see our premier post by Jesi Scott from Lunatic Poet and are coming back for more, but if this is your first visit, thanks for stopping by and be sure to check it out as well.

“Why the Twisted Writers?” – you might ask. It’s a good question. Aren’t all writers a bit twisted?  Quite possibly yes, we all are, but this group is happily embracing our inner moonlight as the quote from Allen Ginsberg says above. We aren’t hiding our madness. We are celebrating it! And probably frequently encouraging you to as well.

While our posts will vary depending on the author and his/her particular call to write that day, our focus will be ultimately on writing.  Maybe you are a writer too, hopefully what we write about speaks to you and you feel part of our Twisted community.  Maybe you are a reader and can’t wait to see what our Twisted world has to offer.  Excellent!  Maybe you are our friend or family member and have been ordered to go read our blog immediately.  Sweet, thanks for the support!  Maybe you saw a tweet or Facebook post and thought “What the Hell, why not give them a look.” Great, thanks for checking us out and we hope you’ll come back.

Whatever the reason you may be stopping by, we hope our Twisted ramblings have you coming back for more. This group is varied in age, gender, writing style, experience level and probably in opinions. Thankfully though, we also have a lot in common.

We all have voices in our head that speak to us, and not only are we okay with that, we are happy about it.  When those voices stop talking to us, that’s when we start to worry.

We all have a shared commitment to our writing, both as individuals and as a group.  Part of our reason to do this blog was to help build on what we have all begun and we’re excited for you to join us in the process.

Perhaps most in keeping with our Twisted theme, we all rock a wicked sense of humor.  We none of us take ourselves too seriously and we know humor is one of the things that keeps us (relatively) sane.

But not too sane – because we all shelter our spark of madness.  As Robin Williams once said:

You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.
