A Sad Love Poem

When I began this blog, I wasn’t quite sure what my intentions were, other than a place where I could announce upcoming publications of my work, and share author-friends’ milestones. And that is pretty much what has happened here over the past year.

I don’t write here on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis because being published seems to come in spurts or floods. And then, there are dry spells.

Recently, I felt that my endeavor with dark, creepy story-writing is coming to a close – at least with my recent publisher, and I am happy for that. I want the freedom to express myself in my own, unique way.

While my Muse is now free to choose our next adventure, I have been exercising my poetic muscle. Spillwords has published another of my poems, “Out of Love”. You can read and vote here: Out of Love,  all votes are deeply appreciated!

My plans for this next week/month are to write and re-write at least four stories and submit to different publishers, write more poetry, and find time to read.

“Find a subject you care about and which you in your heart feel others should care about. It is this genuine caring, not your games with language, which will be the most compelling and seductive element in your style.” — Stephen King
