It’s National Poetry Month and I’m starting a bit late to this bandwagon. I decided to try to post a short poem daily. Since I missed two days, I’ll just start today, and maybe try to make up those two days later this month by posting more than one poem. I’ll also examine various forms… Continue reading National Poetry Month: Starting late
Nourishing our Creativity
Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ book inspired this essay; I then posted it in the LegendFire Nonfiction forums for critiques, and this is its final resting place. Enjoy. Nourishing Our Creativity From the depths of our souls, the waters of creativity flow in an unceasing river, invigorating our psyche and our life when expressed. The moment… Continue reading Nourishing our Creativity
The Year of 2014
And so a new year begins. Interestingly enough, there really is no significance as to this date starting the new year, other than historical references. Astronomically, this date doesn’t signify anything; the winter solstice is slightly more significant astronomically, since it signifies when the days start to lengthen again rather than shorten. This is all… Continue reading The Year of 2014
National Novel Writing Month is next month!
I’ve participated every year in NaNoWriMo, but I’ve only completed it twice. Mostly I use it as a way to encourage me to write daily again. To force myself into a pattern. This will last for a few months afterward, until life disrupts my patterns and I have to start all over again. A never-ending… Continue reading National Novel Writing Month is next month!

Her brown eyes held a bit of sparkle, that hint of a smile that reached down to the edges of her lips. “If you could do anything, what would you… Continue reading Facing the Truth

I’ve been busing sorting my life, trying to find a job to pay the bills, so I can go back to creating and updating and writing again. In the meantime, I wrote this today and… Continue reading What I desire
This month has not been kind, but I have persevered. My writing hasn’t suffered too much despite everything, which is a relief. I tried hard to write no matter what or how I felt. Pushing through the hard times often feels like I’m walking on a heavier gravity planet, where the effort to lift my… Continue reading Expressing oneself
I take this moment to present: Quark
He is captivated by the window. Birds, the rumbling of car engines, and all those fascinating sights and sounds capture his attention. What thoughts traverse his mind at this moment in time? Dare to guess anyone?
Since this is a new year, I decided to reshape the face of my blog. Give it a new feel, a new design, and update it for better features. Hence my new look will be quite a bit more colorful than the previous design. For this new year, I’ve made some goals: Finish two novels.… Continue reading Reshaping Reality
2012 in review
Thank you, WordPress, for this wonderful report. It’s a start for this blog, and now that I’m starting to manage my time better, I am going to attempt to resume my weekly updates to this blog.
