Wrote a few sentences. Post to be posted tomorrow with the things and bits. Will try to finish 1 of the missing scenes from the outlined short story.

Another tiny short bit I don't necessarily feel up to posting per se. This one was actual story content! Also I figured out why that scene is stuck, so research this weekend! Will proofread and compile these draft bits to post soon. I promise.

Here is my first April post of trying to write and post something daily, even if it is rough!

I think that my monthly goal will be to WRITE and POST something original-fiction-related EVERY DAY. Read more... )

I am at my parent’s home, my childhood home, in Kansas City, cleaning out my closet and bedroom. About sixteen large boxes of papers to go thru, ranging from elementary on up thru grad school, much of it sorted repeatedly but all still needing reorganizing and tossing of much of it, but not all - I refuse to toss everything. Lots of fun going thru memories; avoiding ruminating on change, loss, etc so far. Joy in noticing continuities and recovering old creative work. I was very prolific with poetry, sketching, world-building, and childish short stories! Need to tap back into some of it and keep going. Feeling strange but overall positive at this point. Just shy of halfway of a first pass thru all the boxen, getting rid of obvious junk only.

So I decided to write a brief conversation with one of my characters to help me get into better understanding the moments of conflict and change in the story I've been working on for awhile. And, well, Alauno showed up to royally tell me off for leaving her in her current stuck place plotwise.

And also hammer home a message that all the things I'm doing are really part of the same task. Again. (THANK YOU, universe, dropping the exact type of ***beadwork*** I've been doing in also was *more* than enough on top of the *breathwork* during the professional development session on childhood trauma and resilience.)

She got a bit stroppy. Like writer, like character perhaps.

(And oh great, I called myself an writer, I really really really have to get my daily 500 words in all February. Good start today...)

Talking Action: A Haiku Duo

Acting adult is
actually, yes, awful —
and yet, amazing:

at an extreme of
angsty anger - oh. Asking:
“Hey. Are you okay?”

I wrote a bit of self-care advice to myself in the form of a series of haiku. Comments of all sorts (except the jerk sort), including constructive criticism, are welcome. CW: food, home remedies, mention of sources of stress, mention of death of animals, didactic tones (it's not that scary, but I wanted to be through). Read more... )

This grim little poem-something came to me while I was pondering on how to reflect recent emotions via art and/or story. Content warning for scary wintry imagery, death (of an ambiguous character). Additional warnings for my mind being in a very sad place, struggling ahead and hitting some milestones. Read more... )

Weekend's almost over, but there is still time to jam with some prompts and some writing...

A good night’s sleep, a pretty morning sky of rose-tinted clearing clouds, and sunshine this afternoon.

Entertaining fiction online - I’m hesitant to post reviews since I wouldn’t *unequivocally* recommend anything I’ve read recently and don’t think I have the energy for explaining nuances, but let’s just say sf&f with queer themes and a bit of a historical flavor.

Maples with kiwi green, dandelion yellow, and flame red leaves all at once. The colors, the colors, the colors!

Noms, school job under cut: Read more... )

Draft of a short poem in couplets, fulfilling my plan to update in poetry or fic on a weeklyish basis. Not sure if I like this one or not; critique specific or general is welcome.

The Autumn Comes Uncertainly To School

A leaf at rest on end of branch is torn
Pulled loose by clutch of child’s hand forlorn.

With dragging feet and dancing feet and all
Come littles five years young to line the hall.

The leaves in yellow fall from branch to ground;
The children sing - or wait for songs unfound.

After a conversation on writing, and some thoughts I've had recently about time management, prioritizing, and making room for joy, I've decided that it would be a good idea to update at least once a week in the form of either a poem or a piece of fiction writing in progress. Thus, a part of my day today, in a haiku chain.

*** Gardening Poem ***

Weeds always come back.
A tree of thorns erupts from
under the chain fence.

Sun always comes back.
Three-prong fork scratches the dust
of dry brown mudstone.

Rain always comes back.
Today, water rolls off, oozes,
gone; but soon clouds come.

Decay comes back too.
A centipede, crawling, twine
left buried, forgotten.

Life always comes back.
Seeds, care, time, air, work, luck, earth,
life in the garden.
