Writer’s Block

Writing.  I swear that word has the power to change the world. But then there are days when I’d much rather share a space with a spider. And note, I do everything in my power to avoid those like the plague.  I’ve never truly believed Writer’s block to be what so many people define itContinue reading “Writer’s Block”

Fear 

Fear has a power to move us in ways unimaginable and gives us strength we never knew we had.  The shivering was getting out of hand. My entire body began to quiver, the anxiety overwhelming my delicate system and it was like my mind was in its own personal tug-of-war.  Metal bars sealing me insideContinue reading “Fear “

Busy Year Ahead

Boy has this year gotten it’s start on me! Life does not certainly slow down when you have a 11 month old bent on taking over the world!     But this momma is teaching him right! He’s going to be a boy for sure, playing with all the farm toys and enjoying that hunting andContinue reading “Busy Year Ahead”

Happy New Year!

Oh my goodness has it been a while! But first holiday season with our youngster made it both more enjoyable and work!  I’ve decided enough slacking, however, because it’s time to get back to work. I have a book to edit before getting it off to my ghost editor and then I have to query,Continue reading “Happy New Year!”

Entangled we were; two simple threads in a faux fur.  If all we could see was gray then why didn’t we find another way? At best, what once was bliss quickly became a game of hit and miss.  Troubled nights lead into days of fright.  Shadows with our darkest desires plagued us with a needContinue reading

She gazed upon the waves in the distance, imagining the reef teaming with hungry predators looking for a meal.  Temporarily distracted by the melody of crashing waves and sifting sand, the young widow approachedContinue reading “Haunted Waters”

I Will Be

When the world goes dark, and you search blindly with fear – I will be the light that shows you the way.  When the world goes still, and the grief is too much –  I will be the hug that you need the most.  When the world does nothing, and the rage is overwhelming –Continue reading “I Will Be”

Worldly Illusion

The world was once so accessible  and now it’s all in disarray.  Offensive, incorrect, and judgemental –  a few tones to the infamous melody.  What happened to respect? What happened to common courtesy? Are we all to be scrutinized for the remaining time we have? Must it all be a trigger to a larger dispute, Continue reading “Worldly Illusion”

Writing Prompt 11/12/15

Even in the pit of darkness, the pistol had a certain glow about it. It’s sleek, hard barrel was smooth beneath her hand, it’s texture fine and utter perfection in a world that was far from it.  Not long ago the world was a much different place. One where people were courteous, kind, and gentle.Continue reading “Writing Prompt 11/12/15”

Complicated Perfection

Overwhelming machines a worrisome screen –  none of us could’ve foreseen what was to change our routine.  Everything was so clean –  stainless with an eerie glean.  I felt myself growing lean between hospital cuisine  and little caffeine.  All we did was for our little bean, the pump, medicine, and saline.  Though the world seemedContinue reading “Complicated Perfection”
