Poetry Wednesday 30 May 12

After A Long Sleepless Night After a long sleepless night... I watch the sunrise through the trees, The music of the early morning pounds in my head, Windows illuminate like spotlights on stage. The clock ticks away yet another minute... I throb from head to toe and back again, Knowing the drudge that lies ahead, And that damn bug that buzzes in my ear. Orange to yellow to white to blue... Hunger growls inside me, Searching the house for satisfaction, Flashing of what was done before. Sunrays peek around to spy... Silent emptiness of this place, Somewhere off in the distance a motor runs, I wander aimlessly from my bed. --IEC

New World Order Walking along        walking alone       i roam this world full of... lonely hearts       wandering spirits       i join The NEW WORLD ORDER No one understands The NEW WORLD ORDER Takes us by the hand Depressed comics      violent pacifists    they roam my dreams at night... When will it all       be all right?       they join The NEW WORLD ORDER No one understands The NEW WORLD ORDER Takes me by the hand I wanna i got here? I wanna know...what now is fear? I wanna know...can you show me? I wanna know...why can't i see? In this NEW WORLD ORDER Where no one understands This NEW WORLD ORDER Takes the mighty man -IEC

Writing Workshop – Finished Yet?

So, you’ve just written the last word of the last line of your newest novel. Now what? Do you send it out to agents and publishers? Do you go the indie route? Neither. Writing the novel is only part of the work. Now, it is editing time. Sure, you can send your work to have it edited professionally. But, you should never send your novel anywhere until you have had the first edit. Editing goes deeper than just reading for typos. Sure, cleaning up those typos is important. But just as important, if not more so, is checking your sentence structure, reading for flow, and making sure that you have been consistent from beginning to end. Sentence structure sets the tone of your novel. Ideally, your sentences should be of varied length and syntax throughout a paragraph. I am not one to stick to rules. Playing with your sentences can help move the story along. You don’t want long sentences entangling the reader during a fast action scene. Short sentences and paragraphs will help t

Poetry Wednesday 2 May 12

From "Tapestry" by Solitaire Parke available at Barnes & Noble THE FACE OF LOVE by Solitaire Parke She sits amid the cushioned chairs And quietly reflects on life Her heart still beats, her breast still clings To thoughts of love and what it brings But nightly as she waits it drifts To darkened fields and blackened cliffs And stains the love she feels with inner strife. She glances at her hands still clasped And sees the years within the lines Her mind still yearns, her heart still feels The memories that make her real But like the empty bottles there Her life is but a hollow stare And cries to have her deepest love defined. She reaches for the mirror's touch But finds the glass has fingers cold Her heart can reach through space and time To touch the soul she wants to find And feel the warmth she's grown to miss The breath of life, a gentle kiss And tears that fall from love she's often told.
