About

Tube of Blue Paint

The Polluted Moon is, as from the subtitle you may infer, a blog about anything. In it you will find poetry , short stories (pocket size paragraphs of fiction), inspiration (the miscellaneous section of works by people other than myself), and of course (since I am claiming this is a blog), blog posts. Everything has been written by me, morningtea, unless otherwise specified.

Sap

Writing has always been something that, in the best of times, came to me of its own volition. This blog is where I let that inclination roam free and explore where words take me when I am not carefully guiding them. This is a trial of sorts, as I have never before done anything remotely like this. No school newspaper or writing clubs. Just my sad little composition notebooks that I guard with my life. I am happy to share with you these 'anything' snippets, and hope to hear your thoughts as well.

For Users

First of all, thank you for stopping by! 

Second-- COMMENT! Criticism and expression of unique ideas are celebrated and greatly encouraged. Please be sure to refrain from posting overly rude or mean-spirited comments, however; those will be deleted. Discussion, not confrontation; please and thank you.

If you wish to quote me, please link to this cite or use my full name if you know it. Plagiarism isn't cool, kids.

Tell your friends about it, and come again. New material will be posted- not regularly- but enough. More traffic=more posts.

Lastly, please post to the Forum!! I love to read others' works, and no matter your skill level, preferred style of writing, or even language, the Forum is a safe and open space for anyone to dare to put a little piece of themselves out into the world, as I have (this site doesn't get much traffic anyway... don't worry). If you wish to remain anonymous that is completely fine! We will cherish you either way.

Enjoy!

Technicalities

Originally, I had wished to remain anonymous for this enterprise, however, as the majority of you who are reading this page will know, that did not last very long. Lack of anonymity notwithstanding, it is easier for me to write and show people these personal snippets when I am able to pretend as though they are unaware of my identity. If you happen to know me personally, that's alright. If you would like to give feedback, compliments, or criticism on my writing, please utilize the comments section, not my dms! And if you have some harsh judgments about the thoughts and/or actions I share here-- my ignorance on the matter will allow me to keep posting uninhibited. Thank you all for your discretion.

For those of you who are vexed by grammar errors or a pointed lack of capitalization, I sincerely apologize. No, I do not write like this all of the time. This is a style I have always been fascinated with reading, and one I choose to use occasionally on this expedition. It is free of inhibition, and encapsulates the stream-of-consciousness style that I employ in some pieces. Again, I apologize to any who may be offended.

If you notice multiple dates on a post, one is the date of publication, and the other is the date of creation. I will be publishing some things that are 'old' and that I had written long before this website was even a dream. If that's a problem for you, dear readerdon't read those ones. They're probably embarrassing anyway.

Thanks

Thank you to my mother, who has inspired me from the beginning of my life with her professionally unrecognized yet amazingly beautiful prose and writing skills. I have always believed, and still believe, that she could be, and deserves to be, a famous poet and author. She is thus far unaware of this website, but I would be remiss not to mention her in this section.

Thank you to my high school creative writing/English teacher; a beautiful soul whose love of literature and the arts inspires me still. My class gave her a rough time, but I hope she never loses her passion for teaching which I was able to witness under her tutelage. Her words of encouragement are in part what pushed me to create this website.

Thank you, finally, to my readers. Although there are not yet many, every new view, like, comment, member, and forum post pushes me to write and publish new material.

I hope you all enjoy.
