For the better part of two decades I have used my writing as an outlet for emotions and to help deal with my depression, anxiety, substance abuse; to expel the demons of a tortured soul.
In 1999, I started using “broken_beyond_repair” as an alias or pseudonym for my writing. As the years went on and my writing became more and more defined I realized that I had created a monster within myself and that it was taking over. I guess life really does imitate art. The only way to fight this monster was to keep writing.
The first product I released under the broken_beyond_repair trademark was in 2011 with an ebook of 51 original poems titled “eMOTION SICKNESS”. I immediately started work on a new book that I had planned on releasing on 1/20/12. This short concept story told through my poetry was to be called “THE DECONSTRUCTIONISM”.
December 2011….I released “eMOTION SICKNESS” in physical paperback form.
In early Jan 2012, I decided against releasing my nearly finished second book and instead started work on a new music project with some of the left over material.
I had now fully realized my initial dream was to use my writing as they were originally intended, as song lyrics. A studio music project “broken_beyond_repair” was started with local musician/producer and friend Gabe Wilkinson (http://www.facebook.com/microwavedgw).
November 2012….THE DECONSTRUCTIONISM is finally released!
Now 2013, over two decades after writing my first poem, I have created 7hirteen Publishing, a platform to help reach other artists and professionals. Here I will showcase my work, both past, present and future. I hope to be able to market my writing someday, as a whole, or individually to musicians and/or other interested professionals.
