Hello My Precious Bloginistas! I wanted to post really quickly because I realize it's been a fair amount of time since my last post (about three months, 15 days...YIKES, more than just "a fair amount of time", really!).

Dear Charles, I have written about you only once here, and that was a re-blog, and so I felt that I wanted, nay, NEEDED, to post directly to you, my inspiration, you who leaves me awe-struck, every time I read your words. There are so many things that I could say, so many quotes that … Continue reading A Love Letter To Charles Bukowski
Hello Fellow Bloginistas! I have a question for you: When you read a blogger's poem / post / story, does it have to be perfect in your opinion for you to click the "Like" button? Plato said: “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. I thought this quote appropriate to the main hypothesis of … Continue reading Why do you click “Like” on a Blogger’s post?

Hello Dear Bloginistas, I would like to know your opinion... I have several possible fiction ideas I am developing and wanted to know how easy a transition you think it is from Poet to Novelist. This is just about the process of novel-writing, not the process of being published, marketing, etc. That's a whole other … Continue reading Transformations…Poet into Novelist?
Hello Bloginistas! Two days ago was the final day of the wonderful month that is National Poetry Month. On the second day of this auspicious month, I laid the groundwork for a "30 Posts in 30 Days" post commitment. WELL, since this is my 11th and final post, I obviously didn't QUITE make it (in … Continue reading The End of National Poetry Month…Progress, and the lack thereof – National Poetry Month Post #11
People often ask me where I find Inspiration. It's not an easy question to answer. For me, it all depends (click the links for an example): on how I look at the world, my present, future or past experiences, even a simple thing like a dragonfly. Inspiration strikes me at odd moments or in planned … Continue reading “What is Inpiration?” – National Poetry Month Post #9
Hello Bloginistas! I came across this article while doing a Google search about Joyce Carol Oates, Poets, and Writing in general. I completely agree with the author's argument at the end of the page and was surprised (to certain extent; I have read about the "cattiness" of a few of the greats) that some of … Continue reading “Why can’t we all just get along?” (maybe just a little bit?) – National Poetry Month Post #6
Happy April and Happy National Poetry Month! Every year, I try to do a post a day, 30 posts in 30 days, etc., to commemorate National Poetry Month. This April is no different! I will introduce some of my favorite poets, some new work (and maybe some older stuff that's never been posted here but … Continue reading 30 Posts in 30 Days? Maybe…:-) Happy National Poetry Month 2014!
Hello Bloginistas! I wrote the following yesterday to honor Thanksgiving to relate the true spirit of the day in verse: gratitude. It is an experiment, of sorts, as I wanted to capture the spontaneity of moment and writing. USUALLY, I am very OCD and anal retentive about my original work and most pieces go through … Continue reading After the food haze: a post-Thanksgiving Day poem
