Energy | Poem

I don’t have it.   This force that drives us, it needs a boost, a charge, a jolt.   Mine is depleted, become obsolete, putting me on power-saving.   A jump- start.   A life- saver.   The mundane is covered.

Road to Publication | Blog 1

This will be a series of blogs about my thoughts and process I go through in order to get my work published! Today’s prevailing thought: I was completely unprepared for the time-consuming nature of the process and the research involved. Working full time and then trying to scrounge some motivation to edit and write to… Continue reading Road to Publication | Blog 1
