Greetings, Internet Surfer, and welcome to PenandCape.com.  But what exactly IS penandcape.com you ask?  Well, that’s a long answer. But, since there is still much contention over whether or not Time is infinite, I’ll offer up the short version:

Essentially, PenandCape.com is a blog(ish) place designed to broadcast poetic and/or prose transmissions from the darkest (and sometimes brightest) nether regions of Jason Mott’s mind. But who is Jason Mott? He’s a poet and fiction writer who’s getting more than a little freaked out speaking about himself in the third person. So let’s make a small grammar shift, shall we?

Okay, let’s start again:

My name is Jason Mott. (Yes…yes, Igor! That feels much, much better). I’m a writer living in North Carolina and I’m proud to say that I write a great deal of poetry that focuses on superheroes. I’m a fanboy (and proud of it!). Like some of you who may have come across this website, I grew up reading comic books. And, like others of you who may have come across this website, I grew up reading lots of classic literature and poetry.
