KingMidget's Ramblings

I have written about this a number of times over the months, but it’s time to say more.  A couple of years ago, through my poetic writing muse, Geoffrey, I met Zoe Keithley.  I started attending monthly writing workshops she led.  Her workshops are different than your usual writing group — where people write from prompts or bring works in progress for discussion and critique.

About kingmidget

About the name. I was the youngest of four. Until I got to kindergarten, I didn't have much to say. All I had to do to get what I wanted was to point, and a sibling, or loving parent, would fulfill my request. As a result, my father coined the nickname -- King Midget. At least that's the way the story goes. I am a father, husband, friend, and lover, writer, runner, pizza maker, baker, and many other things. What I am not is my occupation. It is my job that pays the bills and provides for my family. But, it does not define me.
