WotM - January 2012- Bleed Away

Real Name: Frederick

Age: 19

Location: London, England

Favourite Artists: Nick Drake, Marvin Gaye, Jeff Buckley, Elliott Smith, Pavement, John Coltrane, Beach Boys, James Blake, Fleet Foxes, Joanna Newsom, Beck, Panda Bear, Neil Young, M83, John Mayer, Simon and Garfunkel, Beach House and Bon Iver .

Most Inspirational Writer: I canít really say; I canít bring myself to read novels Ė this has been a problem since childhood.

Favourite poet/poem (published writer): T.S Eliot. Heís the reason why I still write poetry.

If you could be any writer ever, who would you be: Bleed Away

If you could be any flavour, which would you be: Orange soda

Why Do You Write: I always feel a great surge of happiness when I write. Also, writing poetry has helped me to understand myself in a deeper level than I thought was possible.

Favourite word(s): "Acknowledgment" and "Bless"

Favourite Writer(s) on UG: Sticky Tissues, SubwayToVenus, Spike, ottoavist, UncleRemus and Carmel

Most Helpful Critic: ZanasCross

What Do You Do Especially, to Find Inspiration: I normally listen to music - occasionally I would read a poem or an article.

Your Most Recent Work and the Reason Behind It:My most recent work is "One" and itís about losing your previous identity (and everything associated with it) with age. Itís also about self-examination, in a retrospective sense.

Tips for Newer Writers: Keep writing and try new styles. Try to put as much of yourself into everything you write Ė eventually, your distinctive voice will be more transparent to the reader.

Whatís your goal in writing: To share ideas, memories and fleeting thoughts with other people, through writing. I also want to be a better writer.

Final Comments or Thoughts: Iím honoured to win this awardĖ thank you very much. In case any of you are interested, seven poems of mine (I have posted all seven on this forum) are published in this anthology: http://www.towerpoetry.org.uk/publications/the-twelve

My answers for the questionnaire were apparently too long for PM (sorry Dan.)

Because the script writer was an ignorant git, and there was no one who gave a reality check to the science. Seriously.
