Word of the Day – Arbitrary – ‘Sink into Them’

Today's word of the day is Arbitrary: based on or determined by individual preference or convenience rather than by necessity or the intrinsic nature of something or depending on individual discretion (as of a judge) and not fixed by law. I enjoyed writing this one. I feel like I'm missing a stanza toward the end, but at… Continue reading Word of the Day – Arbitrary – ‘Sink into Them’


Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Five – ‘A Light Haunting’

Many apologies - I have been ill the past few days. Still going too, but at least I'm a little livelier than before. There's probably going to be a number of mistakes and typos, but I can check those out later. The twenty-fifth Shadow of May question was: What three things do I most value? 'A… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Five – ‘A Light Haunting’

Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Four – ‘Cold Lemonade’

Lately I've been feeling out of it with my writing. It happens from time to time. I just haven't been enjoying the tone that I've developed over the last few weeks, maybe it's because I haven't written this regularly in a long time and it's spreading me thin. I like to think I get better… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Four – ‘Cold Lemonade’

Shadow Of May – Day Ten – ‘Being Happy’

Sorry for the late post for Shadow of May day ten! Was up all night fighting with Blender trying to build a 3D model for a long term project - I blinked and it was 3am and I had work today at 10... Anyway, day ten's question was: What three things makes me happy? 'Being… Continue reading Shadow Of May – Day Ten – ‘Being Happy’

Shadow Of May – Day Nine – ‘Alone, I Sit In’

Enjoyed my day off tomorrow helping a friend with a project. Depending on where it goes I might talk about it here, or not. Who knows? Anyway, today's Shadow of May questions were: How do I feel about solitude and How do I feel about loneliness?   'Alone, I Sit In' Solitude- Peace inside My… Continue reading Shadow Of May – Day Nine – ‘Alone, I Sit In’

Shadow of May – Day Seven – ‘All in Time’

Here's Shadow of May day seven! This one has been the easiest by far to answer. The questions were: How do I feel about being alone? Why? 'All in Time' I worry little for loneliness, And why should I? Sometimes it’s nice to enjoy Darkness, night, and pure solitude Without worrying when the Sun Will… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Seven – ‘All in Time’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Nine – ‘Lilies’

Didn't get around to posting this yesterday due to yesterday's big storm - so here it is now! The prompt was to take a concrete noun from our favorite poem and use it as a anchor to brainstorm a new one. I my favorite poem is Tennyson's Lady of Shallot (I even have a tattoo… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Nine – ‘Lilies’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Five – ‘The Closet’

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt was to explore a small, defined space. This was fun to write. 'The Closet' There are a few hundred mysteries to behold Some hanging, some laying, some folded Between all these cloths bought half-old In that little closet of mine standing swollen. There are shoes, semi-worn stuffed in nooks Four shirts well… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-Five – ‘The Closet’

NaPoWriMo – Day Twelve – ‘Home’

Today's prompt was alliteration and assonance - I'm much better at alliteration than assonance, but I tried. Anyway, this piece needs some more work, but it's been a rough day at work (and hopefully I'll be getting a new job soon that's in my field of study). This is what I could do tonight!  … Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Twelve – ‘Home’

NaPoWriMo – Day Ten – ‘The Artist I Know’

Today's prompt was to write a portrait of someone close, and well, my best friend is whom I'm closest too. This was pretty hard to do - surprisingly so. I did her no justice. "The Artist I Know" Carefully we’d ready it all, the pens and palettes She was methodical and fluid, eager and jaded.… Continue reading NaPoWriMo – Day Ten – ‘The Artist I Know’
