“The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering.

I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,

I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world.”

~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I have this thing for characters. I can’t explain it. They get into my head and run around until I put them on paper. It’s not always pretty, but it’s usually entertaining. And they’re usually not mine—that’s why they end up here. So look around, review, and enjoy!
