Word of the Day – Diminution – ‘Slipping Away’

Good evening/morning! Today's word of the day is diminution, the act, process, or an instance of becoming gradually less (as in size or importance). I've been writing on and off these last few days, but haven't gotten anything worth sharing really. I realize it's been a few days since I've posted so I'm going to go… Continue reading Word of the Day – Diminution – ‘Slipping Away’

Word of the Day – Fester – ‘For Your Consideration’

So today's word of the day is fester, to undergo or exist in a state of progressive deterioration or putrefy/ rot. I had a little fun with this - mainly because for me it's in the very early morning hours, and I'm still awake though I have work later today. I'm just sleepless, so I've taken the… Continue reading Word of the Day – Fester – ‘For Your Consideration’

Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Today's word of the day was inalienable, meaning incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred. It took me so long to write this. I didn't want to get political or sad, so I tried to make something beautiful, unfortuantely I feel it's lacking... a lot. Maybe I'll rewrite it when I'm not so tired and… Continue reading Word of the Day – Inalienable – ‘Confession’

Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

To be honest, I didn't know there was a word for this, and yet it's one of my favorite things to do. Today's word of the day is Parataxis, which is the placing of clauses or phrases one after another, without words to indicate coordination or subordination, as in "Tell me, how are you?" 'Going… Continue reading Word of the Day – Parataxis – ‘Going Home’

Shadow of May – Day Thirty-One – ‘Circumspection’

So with this Shadow of May is finished, though a day late. I haven't found anything for June in either poetry challenges or tarot challenges, so I might take the month off as I've got to finish up my sister's book and begin learning Blender to help a friend out on a game she's developing.… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Thirty-One – ‘Circumspection’

Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Six – ‘Oh Night’

Okay, so I'm trying to power through these and get caught up. I've finished day Twenty-six of Shadow of May which asked: What is my direction in life? What is my purpose? Yesterday and today's are just notes sitting on my desk right now - hopefully not for long.   'Oh Night' Tell me what… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Six – ‘Oh Night’

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 Twenty-Three – ‘Slowly, Tenderly’

Have I ever mentioned how hard it is for me to name things? Like, I'm terrible at it most days, but today I just couldn't decide.. But I guess this will work. Today's Shadow of May asked: What is my hatred to my energy levels?   'Slowly, Tenderly' I have learned, ever so slowly To… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Three – ‘Slowly, Tenderly’

Shadow of May – Day Fifteen – ‘All the Little Hurts’

Here is yesterday's Shadow of May! I'm still a little sick - but I'm going to try and keep on top of these. I at least want to get through all 31! Even if I'm a bit behind in some areas - the challenge asks some very interesting questions... Yesterday's question was: How do I perceive… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Fifteen – ‘All the Little Hurts’
