About the author: 
I write because it’s painful and sometimes pulling words out of my brain is like being submerged slowly underwater, grasping at anything to be brought back to a breathing point. Until that moment occurs you flail and wonder why you would ever put yourself into this predicament in the first place and even moreso wonder why you would keep coming back. Each time above water is like being in love for the first time. A rush of wonder and joy of life is thrust upon your soul and breathing is better than anything you’ve experienced. I write because it’s the only thing I haven’t been able to run away from. I live for those moments above water.
- Eli Williams

About the author: 
There just aren't that many queer writers out there, certainly not many of any real name value.  Even within our community, there's just not that many of us out there whose work is visible.  I just happened to learn early on that I had a talent for wordcraft, and because of this, I was able to focus on developing that talent at a time in my life where almost everyone else my age was focused on social status and popularity.  I don't really consider writing a talent or a gift so much as I see it as a responsibility.  I am an autistic, bipolar, transgender lesbian feminist in a time and political climate where people like me rarely, if ever, see their voices in print.  There is an audience in desperate need to see their lives and experiences represented in the media, and I, as a neurodivergent queer woman, have a responsibility to every other neurodivergent queer woman in the world to make my voice heard.  That's why I write.

About the author: 
I write because I consider myself an independent author. Sometimes it’s fun, sometimes it’s tough and tedious. I like to call myself a creative writer because most of my writings can be expanded in different modes of art. My author name is T. Ponder. Personally, I don’t like to put my image on or in my artwork.


FourPlay #25: Deliver Us into the Dark by Robin Wyatt Dunn

About the author: 
I write to keep the blood off my hands; better to have ink. I write for the revolution, which begins in the mind. I write to stay sane, although staying sane is a crazy thing to do. Also, I write for all the chicks.
