As you can see, posting every day is not happening.
This is for two reasons. The first: I don’t want to share everything I write this month because I have a feeling I may want to publish some of it, use it in a current novel, or something of the sort.
The second: I simply keep not having the time or energy to post.
Anyway, I wrote three more poems and several thousand more words about what happened to Aionladon before he was in the cell (see my previous post). I’m going to share little bits of it with you (but not everything. for the aforementioned reason #1).
day 2: dare
When everywhere the night has fallen And days are only memories
(That’s all you’re getting. I’m majorly dissatisfied with this poem… I think I’ll write some better poetry after I get back into the swing of writing poetry every day.)Read More »
This year is my first time participating in Camp NaNoWriMo! I’m handwriting (just like I did for NaNo) and my goal is 20k words. I’ll be writing one poem a day (based on Lemon’s prompts) and also working on some story ideas: one called “Darius Raven,” a few inspired by the New Testament, and a futuristic dystopian. (Also, I’m writing some short scenes inspired by books I like, but with my own characters in the situations. I had the idea last night and am having so much fun with it today…)
I’m not sure I’ll be posting about it every day, but I am going to try to share my writing frequently this month. It’s (mostly) fun, and provides motivation to do the best work I can.
Today I have two snippets to share with you: a poem based on the prompt “golden,” and a Wingfeather Saga-inspired adventure featuring Aionladon (my novel’s MC) stuck in a jail cell. Read More »
NaNoWriMo is over (and I won, which was stressful but worth it – more on that later). I still have more work to do on my Fiddler novel. I’m about to start work on my short story and poetry collection. Christmas is coming.
So naturally, I’m sharing some snippets of poetry that I wrote in October using the Inktober prompts.
. . . naturally.
Let’s ignore the fact that the timing of this post doesn’t make much sense and focus instead on the fact that I wrote 31 (34, actually) poems in October, a few of which are worth reading, and that today I’m going to give you the pleasure of seeing some of them.
And let’s begin.
I’ll be sharing quotes from my favorite poems of the month, along with pictures (courtesy of Unsplash) that I’ve chosen to go along with them.
day 1: ring
This smell of fall is a whisper, A glimmer, A glimpse of your grandeur.Read More »
My little sister asked to have her hair curled. My other sister decided it was a perfect opportunity for a photoshoot. I decided it was the perfect opportunity for a photography post! (Featuring quotes, of course. When I write a blog post, expect quotes.)
