My name is Angela Hawthorne. I live in a small town in Virginia. I would like to think of myself as someone with a lot of accomplishments. I am active in writing, art, photography, college, the community, and my workplace. I like being creative and I like to live my life in a way that I don't waste anytime. I think we all should live this way. I can't think of any main influences that I have but I think I was born with inspiration given by God. Poetry and art is my life. I am proud of the talent I possess and will never put it to rest.
I write about all subjects. I write about all subjects because our lives do not just revolve around one thing, but many. I write about what I feel in nature, love, emotions, disgust, humor, irony, and childhood. My photography is mostly sentimental or just emphasizes that nature is beautiful. I hope that others can find something in my words or artwork that reaches them.
I hope to one day be published so that many can see and hear the ideas that I have. I want readers and onlookers to see their lives somewhere in what I write or create.
In all of my dreams, I do not pray to be famous, but to touch someone's life, even if for just a second.
My future plans:
I would like to create an all ages magazine specifically for great unpublished writers and artists that are not recognized. I think that a lot of great artists and writers are overlooked.
Other Info: I love to sing. Most people don't believe that I can because I have never let them hear me, but some poems I write while playing my guitar and singing. The words just come better to me that way.
