Writing About Knitting Is A Thing..

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    I love how you encourage everyone to write what they really want to write rather than try to write to please the readers.
    Maybe one day I’ll even believe you enough to go ahead and do it myself 😉

      You have to write what’s in you to write. Even if it doesn’t make you famous. Integrity is an important trait and I think it’s unfortunate that its becoming extinct. Besides, writing what other people tell you to write will not make you happy, just frustrated. And that’s true for anything you undertake in life.

        I totally agree 🙂
        One day, I’ll get to write the things that are in me. I can think of a few that are so different, really, but… they’re both part of me 🙂
