Member Since
April 2008

Tammy Lynn Whisman, born and raised in Southern West Virginia. I'm a frequent contributor to several online poetry magazines.

I love writing poetry. Painting pictures with words that tickle the imagination. In hopes that her words, make the reader laugh or cry; to reach out and touch with words that soothe or startle.

Lyrical expressions, vivid phrases and puzzles to boggle the mind, are some of the ingredients that help inspire my muse; an indulgence that gives me great satisfaction.

I'm a small town girl living her dream to be a published author.

Tammy Lynn Whisman hasn't written any blog posts yet.

Sally Derby Thanks for befriending me, Tammy. Let me offer you my newest favorite quote. It's the last little bit from Naomi Shahib Nye's "If They Ask You"

"Walk around feeling like a leaf.
Know you could tumble any second,
Then decide what to do with your time."

I may have the title wrong, and "then" shoulld be italicized, (I can't find the way to do it right now) so my apologies, but isn't it a great thing to remember?

Lee Thanks for being my goodreads buddy, Tammy!
