My Words

Where does she put it all?

I love it when people ask me what genre I write, for with this many words, there was no way to choose just one. 
Pollyanna Poetry
I am not a poet. But I love putting my feelings into words in a way that makes a cadence I can hear in my soul. The heartbeat of A Repurposed Heart. They are cheesy. They are sappy. They are probably some poetry critic's longest article. I love them anyway.
“Now this is very profound, what rhythm is, and goes far deeper than words. A sight, an emotion, creates this wave in the mind, long before it makes words to fit it . . . ”
― Virginia Woolf
For it does not matter if our feelings are perfectly defined or if our words are perfectly placed. What matters is the impact they have on someone who needed those words in that moment. Maybe today that someone is you.

Imaginary Friends
I never planned to write fiction stories. After a challenge from a friend to step out of my comfort zone, I fell in love with my new imaginary friends and all of their adventures. I have funny friends, historical friends, long-lost friends, and friends that are a lot like me . . . human in triumph and mistake.
"It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does."
 ― William Faulkner
Life is complicated. We must remember how to find joy, how to wish, how to dream. What better way to find those things than to take a break and let your imagination remind you how to have fun again.
