1. I usually visit it about each second time i visit otaku.
2. Not yet, i'm bulding up my confidence
3. I read most of the new posts and things that catch my eye
4. Yes
5. Some of it is really quite good - very beautiful imagery, and
other bits need work. Een so the standard is good
6. Yes, especially during the middle of high school
7. I suppose it was cathartic for a while after i wrote it - got it off my chest so to speak
8. Good poetry is good poetry, no matter what it's about.
9. Yes, i think suffering gives what you write a more human element - you understand how your writing creates images for people.
