As I was signing off on a few writing blogs this day as Collage Pirate, it occured to me that it has been quite some time since I actually posted.....or created.....some collage writing.

If you follow this blog you know that I collage to write.
In my jumbled mind, I feel the need to create my story characters and plots by collaging them.
If I didn't collage it didn't happen!

My Vorpal Blade goes snicker-snack and my glue stick slashes everywhere.
Nothing matters but the words.

Also, I tend to miss my two favorite characters-Violet and Dirty Tom-the most.

The story I am currently working on is about Violet and her meeting of Dirty Tom.
Dirty Tom is mute (nay politically incorrect...simply the language of the time period).....but he often has a lot to say.

So, I post here some of my collage work that helps me bring character and story to life before I get down to the act of writing.

Happy New Year! Love your collage pieces (especially the one with the tartan)! May 2012 bring many blessings your way!

Very nice work! Looks like you've been having a lot of fun. I love the one about Tom. The one about blood is also very striking! Would love to try this approach sometime. I don't buy magazines tho...maybe I should start.

Awesome and powerful! Love the collages and the effort you invested in bringing them out of your head!

Love the collages~it's been a while since I did a collage poem. I usually make a sample for my students when we cover poems. I kind of miss actually teaching. Anyhow, I look forward to your next collage poetry offerings.
