10 Things You Should Know About The Bipolar Writer

Sorry for being not so available this week. I’ve had finals. Once I am done with this week, I will be writing three new feature articles in my ongoing series Interview Features – The Series

I love these lists because it gives insight to you my fellow bloggers about pieces of my life. You know about many of my issues and how I deal, and you even know my history. But what about me personally?

Well, here are 10 things you should know about The Bipolar Writer.

  1. I love books – I guess that might not surprise you, but that love started as a young child. I was read to my whole life, and by age three, I could understand on my own reading chapter books. I read at a college level by the fourth grade. I have some favorite series like Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones, and yes even the Twilight series.
  2. Music is life – I have this sincere appreciation for all things music. I don’t have a specific genre that I listen to because my theory is if it sounds good then I will listen to it.
  3. I love to read poetry – I am not great at writing it. I am taking a poetry class my last semester, and I hope to write poetry book in the future.
  4. Edgar Alan Poe is my favorite author – A close second is Earnest Hemingway.
  5. I have a sincere appreciation for the people in my life that stuck with me through the bad and the good. There is a good chance if you saw me at my worst and still wanted to a part of my life you are family to me.
  6. I am not a great people person in real life – It is part social anxiety and part introvert that keeps me from being openly communicative in public. I tend to walk with my head down trying to not make eye contact.
  7. For the first three years of my diagnosis, I didn’t believe that I was Bipolar.
  8. I love sports but especially baseball. I love that from April to October I get a chance to watch my favorite team the Dodgers play.
  9. I am an outstanding role-playing video gamer. It’s in my blood. I played my first game, Alex, the Kid on the original Sega, when I was three. Been playing games ever since. I excel at strategic role-playing games.
  10. I love to write because I can get lost in worlds that create. My characters are always an extension of who I am as a writer.

So there you go. Another ten things list. Check out my other list of ten things in my life.

  1. Ha, Dodgers fan. I’m an obligatory Giants fan because my stepdad is one. We live in Iowa, so it makes no sense to me. Our cats are even named after baseball players, though I don’t really know how *that* happened. Like, who names a (female) cat Sergio Romo?

  2. Thank you. I have just added you or you me to the continuum in which we exist. I am finding you enhance my perception and in some cases change it’s direction. That is good. I learn much from you. New routes to map.
