About Me

I sometimes,
sideways-lean-on-tablewell, who am I kidding
I often reread my words and critique my art
thinking exactly this

what am I thinking
what am I trying to get at
sometimes
I don’t appreciate the kind decades
generous, in fact
as I’ve had them
to write angst when I’m happy
create euphoria when I’m blue
mold dream sequences I dare not live
in both word and form
often content in my ability
to be discontent
moody
spoiled
the excuse
the “creative” mind or spirit
instead, the reality
human with the privilege of life…

am:)

In 2017, on the sage advice of a dear writing friend, I began the grueling task of submitting my work to online journals. It is my hope, my dream (like so many others on the crowded cloud we share) to have my work reach a broader audience. In many cases, I cannot use writing pieces from my dear blog. These pieces are considered by many journals, “previously published” and therefore not “submittable.” Today, I am writing the bulk of my work offline. For anntogether, I’ve rediscovered my passion for marrying art and word. I enjoy creating small writing pieces or giving earlier works new life. Then I add art and wha lah! I  hope you enjoy and I humbly thank you for visiting.😘
Feel free to email me at amroselli.writer@gmail.com with any questions about writing and/or art.

  1. That’s a nice story. I felt as if I was watching a fairy tale movie. That was sheer storytelling with great art to compliment it.

  3. Wrote you a new song AnnMarie while I waiting in the hospital. The Title ‘We Need More AnnMarie’

    ‘We Need More AnnMarie’

    AnnMarie makes me see
    When I am stubborn
    All of the sudden my world
    Is clear again and there is no fear
    Creating Art and Magic
    AnnMarie
    Her beauty will goon until
    The end of time
    She spreads joy and happiness
    through the world through laughter
    She’s a kind, gentle, spirit
    One of the few left
    Like an angel heaven sent
    A woman set on family values
    Cooking with pride her great dishes
    She is set apart from the rest like a Queen
    Ever since I met her I have been happier
    She caused me a lot more laughter
    With her love and care
    She makes the world a little easier for me.
    We Need More AnnMarie.

  4. Sup AnnMarie exciting news a old friend sent me a message looking to reconnect and asked how i was and how i have been. I told him a lot about graduating college, my writing, my health and mental health problems. When we parted ways he made a mistake by sticking with friends who were jerks to me. He tried to fix it and get me to be buddies with his friends so I just walked away. I was sick at the time and going into the hospital a bipolar relapse so it was best to take care of myself and move on. Ten years later is a lot of time and I gave him a lot of information to absorb and take in so I am sure he will put some thought into his response. I left him with an opening where I said if he was n the area we could hang out or play basketball. It would be great to have another friend to hang out and do stuff with. I’ll stay positive and take it as a compliment he came back after ten years looking to be friends again.

  5. Sup AnnMarie bad news got my A1C results they went up from 7.4 to 7.8 that is a bad position to be in. It really sucks after all that exercise I put in that it made no difference. I am going to cut back and be strict with my diet but also contacted my psychiatrist to make sure its not my BIpolar meds spiking it. It could be stress too. I am just going to keep up the good exercise and pay more attention and focus on my diet.

  6. AnnMarie you have to read my new childrens book ‘Who is the Prettiest Princess?’ and tell me what you think its like 2 pgs. I love the message of the story and I think its great for little girls to read. Of course AnnMarie in there as the most beautiful wife ever passed. Playing a genial old widower in this one teaching the girls what true beauty is.

  7. Hey AnnMarie positive news to report. My diabetes had some high sugars so I got a new diabetes dr set up to see her in november I am open to more pills or needles whatever will help me. I am buying notebooks to record food meals and blood sugars for my drs to help. I am putting everything on 2nd spot and putting Diabetes number one. I really feel like I can improve and do better. It’s very hard work but I can do it. I hate needles but you got to do what is best for your health. AnnMarie=Number One! woo hoo!

      • Okay AnnMarie you take as much as time as you need to get your rest and mentally recharge. I missed you of course but believe me I understand being Bipolar sometimes I have to take breaks from social media and be away from people. Thanks I made a great new friend Julie Handlin she was giving me a bit of a hard time but I had a good response for everything she said. She admitted she was a dork. I commented on some of her pics to say nice things and put her in my new horror book which she loved and she told me it was very sweet of me to include her in the book. Julie is ridiculously pretty treading in AnnMarie pretty territory and same way in kindness. I am going to keep writing my horror book and keep working on my new friendship with Julie. You take care AnnMarie and let me know how you are doing. I care a lot about you. xoxo Dan

  8. Hey AnnMarie I wanted to tell you a funny story about two girls. Andrea was a redhead she was very pretty, had the best smile and was always smiling. I tried to make buddies with her I told her in the cafeteria that I loved her red hair. She loved the compliment and liked me a lot. We formed a little group there was one girl Ilana a black haired girl with black eyes as soon as she walked towards us Andrea said ‘I Don’t trust that bitch’ pretty intense Ilana was very pretty, brave and smart at the same time she stopped in her tracks and had a concerned look on her face. Andrea got kicked out of school for fighting but also rescued abused puppies. Andrea sat with me when I was violently ill no color in my face. She solaced me. Good heart. Never understood why she didn’t like Ilana. She didn’t do anything. Ilana told me she didn’t watch movies. Ilana was strange and different but like Andrea had a great smile. Ilana seemed to be happy I went over to check on her to see how she was doing she was easy to talk to. The 3 of us are sort like the characters in Jaws Robert Shaw hates Richard Dreyfuss intensely yet he likes The Chief. I was The Chief I was nice to both the girls and cared for them. I felt bad for Ilana and was good to her. My sister says sometimes girls just don’t like other girls. I put them both in ‘Halloween 2’ book in played off the real life hatred between the two. Gave Ilana the best scene and iconic scene with us both very suspenseful. ‘Halloween 2’ is going to have an awesome ending one no one sees coming. I think they would both be flattered to be in it. I tried to give Ilana some great scenes since she got the treatment by Andrea. I love both girls. Andrea liked me a lot. Ilana liked me too it was more subtle. Well she was always looking at me. Those two had a good rivalry. Very colorful fun people and good girls. I love those two. AnnMarie=Number One!
