Spring In Florida | NaPoWriMo Week Four

Hard to believe it’s the last week–last day, actually–of this year’s NaPoWriMo. It always goes by so fast. I’ve grown up in Florida, but it feels like I’m just now beginning to appreciate the beauty that is my state. And as much as I can’t wait to go to school …

Words Like Ripples | NaPoWriMo Week Three

I was very conflicted on which poem to post this week. Honestly, most of what I wrote wasn’t that great, or else not something I’d ever share. The business of writers is words; but words need to have something behind them. You can’t just write for the sake of “being …

Did You Forget | NaPoWriMo Week Two

I was lying awake last night when I suddenly realized I never posted anything on Monday. This shall now be remedied, albeit two days late. did you forget what the stars look like from here? caught in the hastening blur and the glare of rushing headlights, bending so hard, so …

Is He Worthy? | Snippets (trying something new)

As you might have noticed (or rather, not noticed), I haven’t been posting on this blog very often. In fact, the past few weeks it’s been a consistent every other Thursday. Part of the reason for this is that I’m also posting every other Friday on TheRebelution. Trying to do an …

Best of February (and Greetings to March)

Well, a great deal happened in February. And will you look at that, I missed posting about it on the first of March (I was busy researching… more on that in a moment). So here’s an update, and I’ll include a lot of interesting things instead of just an internet …
