Overview

Meet Middle, the voice of Circleforks, a layered rarity of a woman who determined that she couldn't be that unique, and decided to unfold herself by pasting the naked-nonfiction of her life against self-preservation.

Editorial Reviews

Kerri Gedert
I found myself craving Circleforks!! It was so real, like reading your best friend's journal ... and somehow it made my own life seem like a sitcom. Maybe the real meat of life IS the drama which creates each of our own unique, re-creatable stories.
Dominic Fontana
Edgy and aggressive, Middle demands a gut check with every turn of the page.

CHAPTER 1 THE MIDDLE OF THE BEGINNING

--

-"Love is what we're born with and fear is what we learned here."--Anonymous

--

Life before the middle was grand. Actually, I'm convinced that the middle must have always existed in some form within me, but life was seemingly ordinary until I filled in the marching ants covering my outline and found that I had accidentally captured me. To this day, I wonder what would have happened if I never united those tiny creatures into one populous family and instead, left "me" as a rough draft.

--

Before the middle discovery, nobody harassed me or marveled over my ability to connect with any human form. Nobody counted on me, nor looked to me with such nauseating hope in their eyes, or with such throbbing pain. I was different from all the kids who drew others to them in a normal, "I know how to do this because I live with it at home" sort of thing. And my difference equated to a strange encapsulation.

--

I wish I could have captured the essence of this middle state, but each definition that I found stuffed an entire range of emotions into simplistic absurdity. There is nothing wrong with these synonyms in theory, but in actuality, they are just too much like the pretty boys that never looked at me twice while growing up: superficial, much too attractive for life's reality, and not able to withstand a measly decade before falling apart into the very thing they exhibited such exemplary snobbery against:

--

Center, heart, focus, hub, focal point, inner, internal, median.

--

I couldn't stand the cozy nature of these and instead, came up with myown:

--

Draining, "Bitch" (as in She's my Bitch), Forced, Fucked, Caught between a rock and then body-slammed against a hard place.

    A reviewer

    Circleforks is a group of life stories combined into one chronicling the author¿s journey through her emotional, psychological, and physical personal life i.e. ¿the middle¿. Living a life that is neither hot nor cold but lukewarm and not standing for much of anything, she finds herself thrust into many self inflicted soap operas. Dozier tells of her desire to be the center of attention, the healer of all woes, the unneeded mediator, and the only child who is convinced that her solo existence is a disability. This true life drama is riddled with wit and comical language that every person who has ever tried to find themselves can relate to. Circleforks is a real and sometimes painfully funny quest for self love and self acceptance. Great book. Makes you look in the mirror twice.
