Shining Through Experience (4 of 4)

Thanks for hanging in there with me for the conclusion of this story.  It was really fun to write.  If you are behind, please check out PART 1, PART 2, and PART 3.  Enjoy. “I’m tired of trying to see the good in people.” “What do you mean, Annie?” Eddie asked. His hands felt clammy…

I Finished It!

It’s been a long and arduous process, and I know I’m not signed-sealed-delivered finished, BUT… The first revision of my book is now complete! Whooo-hoooo! Coming in at a little over 72,000 words is my first novel and I’m actually pretty happy with it. I can’t believe I’ve been pouring into this thing for about…

Writing as a habit?

Soon what started in November as a challenge to write 50,000 words in 30 days has turned into a task that has consumed a good bit of my time for the past two months.  My regular posts online have taken a serious hit but I can only hope that it’s been worth my change in…

Checking in with the book

After being off on a bit of a mini vacation over the weekend, I am back at things today. So far I have hit the 16,000 word mark, still making me a full day ahead of schedule.  I hope to do another 1500 before today is out to get me an additional day.  I should…

I Would Know You

Once upon a time I knew you The        pull         between             us           was        our new gravity Eager and fast passion came through needing to trace the curves of your body Your breath upon my skin screamed in near silence                                                         your hunger Your senses where what overtook you My good sense betrayed…

On the Verge of the Shatter

Something is off, can’t you tell? The state of things just isn’t quite right You can sense it in the air Like your focus is just out of sight There is a common thread with most people That go on trying to live through their day If you were to stop them to ask what’s…

My Dream About Time Travel

via Daily Prompt: Original I rarely remember my dreams. About 97% of the time that I sleep I just drift off into darkness and then just wakeup the next day.  At about 2.5% of the time I remember my dream but then as the day goes on, the memory fades away from my mind, and…

The Search for Inspirado

I’ve been searching for you, but still you elude me I am less when you aren’t by my side You bring me comfort, stability, and calm No matter where my eyes do go, you are nowhere in sight   Each time before you are never quite the same Sometimes familiar, but always a bit different…

And Now…Something Different

The more I write and read online, I discover more about myself. I’m able to express my thoughts in a much better way than I was able to before and I have found that there are many that think or operate in similar ways that I do.  Whether it be in their process or how…

All of Us Star Dust

Bits of myself are scattered through the cosmos My being nothing more than star dust Part of the world yet one set apart One who originated from the earth and its crust A cog in the machine of a social combine I play the role I was destined to play I observe those around me…

Withdrawn

Secluded Aside Alone again At the end of the day it’s just me Paths will cross for a moment But it doesn’t really last   I search again I look I wander I want to find the connection I’m missing Maybe the problem is me   Am I too withdrawn Too bored Maybe I don’t…
