Why write poetry, Poet?

I write poetry because I like putting my inner thoughts down on paper. I think of something and write about it - usually in verse. I really enjoy writing and it is very calming.

I enjoy sharing my poetry with others. No matter if it is good or bad, but it has come from me.

How did you get started writing poetry?

It is very strange how I found out I could write. My father died in February 2006 and I was so sad. I sat one day and wrote down my thoughts, as I was missing him so much. It turned into a poem. I thought to myself, "Surely I did not write this", but I had.

I decided that if I could write about my dad, I may be able to write some other stuff, so I did, now I write poetry whenever I have the time .

Who are your influences?

I had no influences - just my father's death

Who are the Scots?

Donald Crisp (1880 - 1974) Born in Aberfeldy, emmigrated to the U.S. in 1906. Despite having acted in more than 400 holywood films, being an accomplished director and taking a leading role in film financing, Crisp became known as Scotland's forgotten actor. Roles include 'Birth of a Nation', 'Intolerance', 'National Velvet', starring with Elizabeth Taylor, and 'How Green is my Valley' for which he was awarded an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor in 1941.
