A Writer Giving Birth

Its' interesting how we as writer's treat our end product as our babies. We give birth to them; slowly and at times painfully. Line by line that finally forms a paragraph. We dare to continue to nurture that piece until finally paragraph by paragraph we produce the first page. And so the process... Sign in to see full entry.

Editing

Red pen ready, set go! Slash here Comma there Change a word Modify the idea Sea of Red Dismayed I see more red than black! Where is that turn of a phrase The humor, the raw wit Substituted over-used words glare at me Bad puns thumb their noses Please don't attach my name to that! Sign in to see full entry.

You Know You Are on a Doomed Date When #6. . .

Those of us who grew up in the 50's, 60's and 70's were exposed to second-hand smoke. Our parents, friends and family just lit up without a second thought.

Muse

My muse haunts me in my sleep Taunting me with new lines and ideas Quick! Grab the pencil by the bed Jot it down lest it be forgotten A line never written A story never told. Sign in to see full entry.

Homage to Halloween

Halloween...one of my favorite holidays as a child. What's not to love? The free candy, the camaderie, television shows, the costumes and being out late. Ah yes, the treats! Back in the '60s trick or treaters were in hot pursuit of the Hershey, Fifth Avenue, Snickers, Three Musketeer, Babe Ruth, Pay... Sign in to see full entry.
