October Wrap Up

october wrap up

If you look in the dictionary for the word “sieve” it will have a picture of my brain. Literally, there will be a picture of my brain with lots of holes glowing white where all of the information and memories have evidently leaked out. It really can be the only explanation as to why, when I posted about 5 days ago and said there would be an October Wrap Up later that day…and then there wasn’t. No, it’s now November 4, and here’s the October wrap up. I’m so glad my current motto is: better late than never! Continue reading

OctPoWriMo Day 7, Dear Writer

Dear Writer,

 

Practice everyday

even when words evade

Let them rise from you

your heart, your soul, your brain

Take risks, pour out despair

Care to create your truth

for there’s no one else who can

Write about what matters to you

for your passion will show

Write about what you know

and what you don’t

Play in the land of make-believe

Create worlds you wish to visit

make them vividly real on paper.

 

But mostly dear writer,

Listen to criticism, take what’s true

but never let it own you

so you never write again.

The same for rejections.

Don’t reject yourself.

Dream daily

Be sensitive

But never ever quit.

 

Signed, Someone Just Like You

Road Trip! Kind of.

I have visitors so I will be going on a short little road trip. My radio silence is because my visitors are already here, but I’m hoping to pop on every once in a while because the voice inside my head won’t be stilled (a good thing, despite how it might sound) and that voice always likes to know if you, in turn, like what she’s talking about. Forget about me, it’s all about the voice! 😉

I’ll try to post pictures as I travel. If I don’t post them here, check out my instagram feed.

Thanks as always. And thanks to those of you who’ve just started following me. I’ll be by shortly to visit you! 🙂

Frustration in Silence

written for dVerse

While this isn’t the first direction my thoughts went considering silence and interaction, or lack thereof, it is the situation I currently find myself in.

Maybe I should be concentrating

July Wrap-Up

It feels extremely possible that I just wrote my June wrap-up, like–yesterday, and yet, here we are on the last day of July. I’m digging in my heels so that the summer doesn’t go any faster!

First off, I really felt like I was back in the blogisphere this month despite having two weeks where my body wanted to make me feel miserable, so yay, I was miserably happy?

And, I still seem to love the exclamation points! Woot! Continue reading

Writing Reader Observation #11 — Let’s Talk Words

book

The very first item in a writer’s arsenal is words. We learn these words via everyday conversation and reading. Sometimes we might even look them up if we don’t know the meaning. Continue reading
