Autumn Tompkins is the Head Sass-Master at ink well copy. I’m a nail-biting, Southern Comfort-loving, poker-playing, adventure-seeking, animal-adoring, tattoo addict who has a way with words.
Writing to increase your revenue is my passion. I could list my accomplishments here, but I ate a slice of humble pie long ago. Plus, they wouldn’t fit. I’m just that awesome!
I also happen to be disabled; confined to a wheelchair Muscular Dystrophy style.
Oh no. Tear.
But wait, before you grab a violin and have a pity party for me…
Didn’t I just say I consume alcohol? Gasp!
Didn’t I just say I’m always looking for adventure? Gasp!!
Didn’t I just say I have tattoos? Gasp!!!
I know what you’re thinking and it’s probably true; I should stay home, mope around, and lead a sheltered life, because I have a disability. Fortunately, I’m simply not that type of person.
I live by a quote I discovered on a Salada Teabag (Don’t worry Salada, this shout out’s on the house), “Failure follows the person whose wishbone is where their backbone should be.” The world and incidentally my body are my canvases. I have to live my life to the fullest. Otherwise, what could have been, will never be.
I’m a somebody. I don’t write for just anybody. I write for other somebody’s. And you, my creative friend, are a somebody.
