Tell us something interesting about yourself.

One thing I find interesting about myself, is one I have never have taken an actual course in poetry which makes it interesting on how quickly I can form a poem without following the procedures and steps that other poets take, I usually can write several poems in one day, without many needing to be revised or edited. I do not know where this gift came from, but I like it and the fact that I can produce such poems the first try and really touch my readers.
