what was that?

Standard

Hi there! I can’t remember the last time I took a voluntary day off from the blog, except for a stray holiday here and there. My new work schedule has thrown me out of my writing groove, not to mention having exceptionally average children acting, well, average. But never fear, I’ll get this back on track, beginning today, December 1. A new month and a new outlook on finding time to write.

Though I have to admit, I’m cheating today. Not because my writing schedule is still out of whack, but rather because I’m incredibly proud of my boy and his own discovery for writing. Over the years, he’s had many grandiose ideas for books he’s wanted to write (a crime fighting man, born without a vertebra for example). But while his imagination was full of big monsterous story possibilities, character development overwhelmed him, thus sending the storyline right out the window. But today, thanks to his creative writing course,  his confidence and writing ability have grown immensely. And as he’s grown so has his willingness to share with us…

and in turn you.

See if you can figure out my favorite one, and please excuse the “Open House” feel of this all. 

The Hard Truth  By my Bay

I share with.                                           you

A little hard                                        Truth.

Life is quite                                 difficult

So deal with.                                            it.


Mad Laugh

Laughing at a thought.              Walking down the Street.                  No one is talking to me               People are staring.                                   I don’t care I don’t care.

I have fun.                                           You can see it,                                         Right? Everything.                                   Is great here.                                                I have faith in people.          

Comforted.                                                         I am content                                           to laugh.
