I didn’t have time for flash fiction today so here’s a bonus poem instead: Roses are red Violets are cheap I played board games all night and now I need to sleep Good night lovelies!
Today’s advent boost directs your attention toward Kristine Wyllys, WOC author and feminist. I believe she is cherokee but my google-skillz are failing me tonight so I will leave it at believe because I don’t want to mischaracterize anyone. I started following her on Twitter a while back, having found her account through some retweet or other. She tweets on a range of Continue reading #AdventBoost Day 13 – Kristine Wyllys
Today, I’m doing flash poetry Friday instead of flash fiction. I felt inspired to do some haikus for the first time in forever. I am also posting them on my Wattpad, which I haven’t updated in ages but you should still check it out. Dexterity Spoltchy manicures Are acceptable, with my Non-dominant hand Hold-up Hey, what’s the hold-up? Why wait Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Haiku! Haiku! Haiku!
It’s been a strange week, friends. Though after all the great things that happened, writing-wise, last week this one was bound to be a little bit of a let down either way. I’m in this mood where I want to work on all my writing projects at once and most days I’m vaguely irked that things like work, sleep, school and Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Eager Unfocused Beaver
So it’s here, the last ThinkKit prompt of the year. I was too sleepy to write it last night after staying up to watch the fireworks and have a delicious dinner with my parents and my bf, so I’m doing it now instead. The prompt, to my delight, was to show something about your past, present and future through… haikus! If Continue reading Five, Seven, Five – ThinkKit Prompt #31
Today’s ThinkKit prompt is a free choice (Chef’s choice, as the email said) and since I’ve been thinking lately that I should post about my plans for 2015 on the blog I thought I’d make a “two birds, one stone” thing of it. I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about plans for next year on the blogs of my fellow Continue reading Writing Plans for 2015 (A.k.a. ThinkKit Prompt #22)
So, the other day my friend Zee posted a biopoem on her blog and encouraged others to try writing one. Being up for a challenge, I decided to give it a go. A biopoem is a fun exercise, whose origins I’m unsure of, where you follow a set of instructions to write a poem about yourself. Here’s how they work (click Continue reading Playing with poetry: a Biopoem
It’s funny, every time I think about goals I hear this voice in my head saying “but you’ve gotta have goals”. It’s a man’s voice and it sounds like he’s saying it at the end of some longer speech about life. However, neither my memory or my Google-fu has managed to reveal to me where, which movie or TV show, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – You’ve Gotta Have Goals
I thought this was gonna be a real bummer of an update, but when I tallied up my daily writing for the past week I realized I haven’t been quite as lazy as I thought. I’ve been procrastinating my editing terribly, though. Bad Emma, no cookie! Okay, one cookie, but only one. Anyhowzers, this week I have: Almost started looking at Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Wattpad Up?
I used to write a lot of poetry. My most productive period was probably about 17-20 years of age. At 19 I published a poetry book as a school project. In the last few years I’ve written considerably less poetry. Not quite sure why, but I miss it and I really think I should try and get back into it Continue reading Poetry
