You could always end it by saying, "It was my lucky day. Death turned out to be a vegetarian."

You know I'm very happy with some people's success when it comes to writing. I love reading Jamie's tweets about all his NY Times Bestselling promotions he's doing. And I love the success that Brandon Sanderson is having. I really think he's a writer that can make changes to the fantasy genre for the better (no more elves, orcs and whatnots as "mandatory"). But I was a little frustrated and discouraged when I read BS's latest post about all the books he has coming out, or plans to write. It made me think of what I've been doing in my writing life: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! I need to change that.


p.s. my old keyboard doesn't want to use the space bar any more so I'm trying out an extra one from my brother. I like the touch of the keys but they stick a lot so I'm having to correct a lot of typos (at least the ones I catch). Let's just say it's not helping matters.

No, I haven't written anything. But . . . I did buy some magazines. I was at Barnes & Noble and thumbed through their writing section of mags. I grad a couple and bought them. I also got Asimov's and Analog too. I haven't felt like writing much of anything lately but I'm starting to again. I just have to figure out how to have enough time for all my hobbies.

yeah too many hobbies... writing, blogging, web development, programming, building puppets, carving marionettes... and this week in the snow I'm trying to pick up knitting (I want to make myself a Doctor Who scarf).

Always loved to knit and crochet (but I hate sewing)...haha Fingers aren't too good for needlework now, though, but happily they do fine on the keyboard! :)

Do I even need to say it?

I bought a magnetic poetry calendar this year and for awhile I didn't know where I put it. I found it recently and decided to finally put it up on cube at work (to try and make things better for me there--see personal blog rant). I played around with the words for a couple of days and I came up with this poem (they didn't have the words that I really wanted):

baked gray by the sun
of winter dreams
night comes between
imagination

I don't suppose it means anything to you guys but it means a lot to me, but I'm not sure I could explain it. I think I might have to find that Poetry in Motion site again and play around there. No promises.

I've done a few poems since my last one, but I didn't write any of them down. Here's my latest one:

Between party tricks
and moon blossoms
I giggle the essence of gray


(Please don't ask me what it means. There's something about it that just FEELS right.)

I get that... the writing of something and not knowing what it means. It sounds pretty and it seems that it should make sense but ya... I'm not sure exactly what it means.

Let's see... it sounds as if the subject (you or me as the reader) feels she is boring in reality but is playing the part of making appearances (say at parties) and it occurs night after night (or year after year) and still she finds herself to be boring. And yet... still dang happy about it, hense the giggling. :)

You know... I kind of like it. :wink:

When you fall
or play with fire
it's time to take a holiday


I remember I very much wanted to get out of the office they day I 'wrote' that but it was so long ago I can't remember why.
