my first poem in November 1995 when I was 15 years old. Inspiration
came from a few sources: a literature related mailing list (called LiT)
where I knew a few people, their works and ideas and also from one or
two people I used to talk to through DALNET IRC network. Writing
became natural, I even did it in the middle of electronics classes I
had at school. The site started as a natural consequence of the happiness
I got from letting people read my works. At times I wanted to try different
approaches because I was coming to the conclusion that most of my poems
sounded a like and were not pleasing me anymore. Some of my experiences
were rather negative but it was through experimentation that I got some
of my favorite poems written.
What always mattered most was the feedback I got, that kept me marveled
even when I didn't like what I wrote. Although I must say that at times
reading my poems, specially a couple of selected ones, helped me feel
much better as I did like them a lot and felt fulfilled with the work
I got one of my poems "Waiting for Eternity" published "In Our Own
Words - a Generation Defining Itself" Volume 2 and after that i
got poetry published at poetry.com, I have had yet another poem published
in a hardcover compilation and a spoken word CD.
At this moment my creative work has come to a stall but my interest
in writing is still inside and many ideas come to mind for future projects
and I don't think it will take long until I actually will create new
things (because that's what I want).
I was born in Lisbon and have always lived in Portugal.
