Feb 2009 WotM - Ottoavist
Originally Posted by ottoavist

Age: 21

Location: Hurricane, WV

Favourite Artists: Hurt, Tool, Chester French, Radiohead, Ween, & many more.

Most Inspirational Writer (Lyrically): Anyone who has the courage to express him or herself through a medium like writing. It takes balls to expose yourself.

Favourite poet/poem (published writer): Bukowski, Dickinson, King David.

If you could be any writer ever, who would you be: None other than yours' truly.

Why Do You Write: It expands new horizons on the quest for those precious moments of clarity. Also when someone finds a point of connection with you through only the things you write; they aren't aware of your past, who you are, or how you live your life - all that is known is what's on the paper, and to find relatability in nothing short of beauty.

Favourite word(s): "Between." I don't know, for some reason I notice its significance everytime I feel it's appropriate to use while talking, or writing, or thinking, or whatever.

Favourite technique/style to write in: However it needs to happen, you can't contain certain things in a distinct style or technique all the time; you can really rob yourself of the end-product if you focus on these aspects of writing more than you do "what you're writing about in the first place."

Favourite Writer(s) on UG: phantom1, #1synth, culex-night, jiminizzle, circular.parade, we have sound, Carmel, THW, kdownes, Angrygoldfish, SYK(whenever he posts), vintage x metal, bleed away, freshtunes.

Most Helpful Critic: Lately Phoebus and Nilchii have been raping my stuff pretty good lol, so thank you guys. Also, freshtunes, DigUpHerBones, bah anyone who reads and has something to say; thank all you guys.

What do you do especially, to find inspiration: Hmm, I think it usually finds me, for some odd reason. I don't think I'd like writing nearly as much if I had to do some sort of soul-search or something like that each time I needed to find the words I want to say.

Your Most Recent Work and Reason Behind It: "just like every other night." Insecurity is man's most formidable adversary, imo.

Tips for Newer Writers: Just do what you do, and don't be afraid of exposure.

What’s your goal in writing: Not really sure'll probably come to me someday.

Final Comments or Thoughts: Again, I'd like to thank everyone who read my work this month, let alone comment. It really means alot.

Picture: Eh, maybe later.
