I write poetry, short stories and rants like a fiend! I have just started submitting, and have received confirmation that I will be published in March for the first time. My writing is certainly my own style and sometimes it won't even fit that frame. I love writing. I dislike the boxes that have been crafted by popular culture and outdated mindsets for literature to fit. Although, I do respect historical lit. and those who created it. I'm more interested in making art than cash. I want my writing to be an awkward conversation with the world. I hope for people to be touched, moved and even outraged by what I write. I will discuss my strange views and perceptions with anyone, but I'll NEVER apologize for what I create. I'm Grady McShane. Nice to meet you.
