on eight crooked legs they scatter and sprawl,
with eight crooked fingers she scrawls on the walls
The title, Inscribed by Shadow, came to me when I was searching for a way to describe what it is that I do and what it is that I want to do. It envelops so much of what I am and how I work and interact with the world in one simple, beautiful phrase. So I began to use it for my writing, and for my work… it’s who I am, and what I do. I am the Shadow Inscriber.
I am many things.
An animist, polytheist, and witch. I am polyamorous, pansexual, and utterly devoted to my partner. I am unconventional. A seer, lover of monsters, myths, and spirits. I work with the dead, and walk a many layered world. I am a writer, a poet, an artist, and a dreamer.
I scratch words and lines into the surface, revealing what truth lies below.
I am also a lover of comics, video games, beauty, and simplicity. I am a survivor. I indulge in and experiment with self expression. I am Non Compliant.
You can find me and my writings in many places online, and under many names. To my family and friends I am Brenda. Links to my social networks can be found to the right, feel free to follow me or just say hello.
