About Me

I am a writer, as you might have guessed. I do have a day job that I won’t be quitting any time soon, but that’s okay by me. I’m just doing what I love.

Oh, you want more?
Hi, my name is Bridget. Some also call me Bee, and I rather enjoy the nickname. I’m here and I’m queer; that’s really only as relevant as you want it to be. I’m also sophisticated as fuck . I’m opinionated, and sometimes these opinions aren’t nice, or politically correct, and I might offend you- and it’s a 50-50 chance that I will even attempt to feel bad about that. I live in the most majestic country in the world. My particular neck of the woods isn’t always majestic …or pleasantly scented, but I’d rather have the sometimes-manure-smelling farms up the street than another shitty subdivision.

As far as the poetry goes, I try to see things from many perspectives. It’s not all stuff that I’ve experienced personally, even though a lot of them are first-person. Should I throw in a disclaimer like they do in the front of fiction books?
These poems are works of creative fiction (for the most part). Names, characters, places, and incidents are products of my screwball mind (except when they’re not). Any resemblance to actual events, places, or people living or dead is coincidental (but sometimes I borrow from my own life).

“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”

One response to “About Me

  1. Provisions of the Copyright Act of Canada

    Rights granted:
    Copyright grants the sole and exclusive right to create and recreate a work whether wholly or substantially. It also includes the sole rights to:

    -publish the work if unpublished
    -perform the work in public
    -to produce, reproduce, perform or publish any translation of the work,
    in the case of a dramatic work, to convert it into a novel or other non-dramatic work,
    -in the case of a novel or other non-dramatic work, or of an artistic work, to convert it into a dramatic work, by way of performance in public or otherwise,
    -in the case of a literary, dramatic or musical work, to make any sound recording, cinematograph film or other contrivance by means of which the work may be mechanically reproduced or performed,
    -in the case of any literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, to reproduce, adapt and publicly present the work as a cinematographic work,
    -in the case of any literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, to communicate the work to the public by telecommunication,
    -to present at a public exhibition, for a purpose other than sale or hire, an artistic work created after June 7, 1988, other than a map, chart or plan,
    -in the case of a computer program that can be reproduced in the ordinary course of its use, other than by a reproduction during its execution in conjunction with a machine, device or computer, to rent out the computer program, and
    -in the case of a musical work, to rent out a sound recording in which the work is embodied,
    and to authorize any such acts.

    Basically, I put the (C) thingy at the end of each of my poems with my name and the date so that no one can use them without asking me.
    So, using this logic, if you wish to use one of my poems, please ask me. Or if someone else says that one of my poems is in fact their poem, please tell me. I believe in freedom, but I also know that I have certain rights when it comes to things that I have created (and loved to death, haha).
