i’ve been away, but don’t dismay!

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!). I wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten, some life events just got in the … Continue reading i’ve been away, but don’t dismay!

A Love Letter To Charles Bukowski

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

Why do you click “Like” on a Blogger’s post?

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?

Transformations…Poet into Novelist?

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.

The End of National Poetry Month…Progress, and the lack thereof – National Poetry Month Post #11

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.

“What is Inpiration?” – National Poetry Month Post #9

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

“Why can’t we all just get along?” (maybe just a little bit?) – National Poetry Month Post #6

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

After the food haze: a post-Thanksgiving Day poem

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
