Hey I Might Be Writing Another Book

Okay so about two hours ago I tried to go to bed. I took some meds for my sore mouth (thanks to my wisdom teeth removal yesterday) and closed my eyes. I soon tried to think up a story that would help me fall asleep. I imagined a scene. It was fresh… something I hadn’t…

Stratford-upon-Avon

If you go to Stratford-upon-Avon Stop and listen to the music Maybe donate a couple coins But really listen Those melodies bring the town to life. ^^^ If you go to Stratford-upon-Avon Stop and gaze at the river Maybe take a boat on the water But really gaze That beauty is for the people. ^^^…

If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.

“If you cannot be a poet, be the poem.” -David Carradine   I do not remember how I found this quote, but I remember how I felt when those words struck me. I remember standing still and letting the meaning sink in. If you cannot be a poet, be the poem. How true those words…

Run.

It didn’t take long for her to put on the shoes. Once she did, she took a deep breath and whispered, “Run.” At her own command, she took off down the dusty road. Corn stalks on either side towered above her. She was away from any civilization, and the feeling of sweet isolation overpowered her….

Despite having to deal with an older brother that loved the outdoors, Tori had never liked the…

Inside the Cloud

It was very dark by the time I drove home from work. The moon was completely covered by the broad clouds that still lingered from the evening rainstorms and the street lamps were dimmed by thin fog, but as I turned onto a street in my neighborhood, the fog thickened considerably. I slowed down and…

Aware

I never knew what I was missing until I opened my eyes.

A Very Important Update

I did it. I finished writing my novel. It’s been a whole year since I started writing this book, and there is no way to describe all the pain, trouble, and joy I have experienced while writing it. I have stayed up late often to finish a scene. I have documented and researched an entire…

The Ups and Downs of Writing

There are some days where I could write for hours on end. Those days, like the day I wrote My Burning Fire, are absolutely amazing. Words tumble out of my brain like the waterfalls of Rivendell while my excitement level overflows. I can usually spit out two or three thousand words easily in a couple of…
