Logan L. Masterson
Born in southern Missouri, and traveling the American southwest throughout my early life, I became rooted in ideas rather than places. To me, home is literally where the heart is. Having developed an early fascination for words, the writing process is not second nature, but first.
There is nothing so vital, so alive, so beautiful in my eyes as the transformation a blank page into an informative article or imaginative fiction, and thence into a thought completely new to the reader. Poetry, lyrics, fantasies and imageries are my stock-in-trade. My tools are intuition, observation, vocabulary and rhythm. Well, those and a good word processor.
If the product of my fancies should become meaningful to an eight-year-old or an octogenarian, my work is validated and my purpose fulfilled.
Enlightenment is worth striving for, but smiles and tears are no mean feat. In short, I like to think of myself as a poet, storyteller, artist, photographer, and ethusiast (but not a dilletante- never that).
