The title is my self-deprecating revenge to grade school, light-up shoe, tricksters who could turn any name into something terrible. “Shitmatter.” What 10 year old wants to be called that? The same 10 year old who’s now in his mid 20s, ready to combat bitterness by calling his blog a piece of Stritt.
My name is Tyler Strittmatter. I am a graduate of Bowling Green State University and my degree is in Journalism. I live in the Queen City (Cincinnati, Ohio) and I am a writer and a poet so, my blog will center around things that inspire me within the writing process. Instrumental songs, articles on writing, random musings and poetry (most prominently) can be found here. “If you can write, if you can put words to paper, you are a writer. You never need anyone else to tell you that you are.”
So here goes nothing as we fly headlong into the blazing unknown together or maybe it will just be me throwing shit matter at the wall to see what sticks.
