If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read alot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.

Step 1 – Set up writing area

Step 2 – One hour of reading and two hours of writing

Writing 101, Day Sixteen: Serial Killer III

Lost and Found

1. Your right to wrong
2. The dream hidden
3. The nightmare no one hears
4. Believing everything is possible for someone else
5. Unknown resistance
6. Morning lists
7. Here and now
8. Free will
9. None of the above
10. Never speak the secret

Then …

Just when you have it all figured out, it will fall apart
And you don’t even care
Stay in bed until noon
Skip the funeral for ice cream
It isn’t that bad

The trick is to disappear when no one is looking
It’s easy
Cover your eyes
And disappear

forget to call back

Forgive and forget to hate them forever

Watch the river twist and turn over
Carrying the past away

Sometimes running into an old friend feels exactly like running into an old enemy. And sometimes running into an old enemy feels like running into an old friend, because things just change, or just because.

The trick
Is to not overthink the obvious
Sometimes the secret fear is real and it doesn’t even matter

Turns out
being a princess is overrated

Writing 101 – Day 2/A Room With A View

The light here has its own ambition
To light the world
And the hearts of men
But only in the day
Call it fickle
One day
A blazing glory
One day
Hiding behind every dark cloud
But I have learned to grasp the ever changing light
To rest in night
Whisper in shadows
And my view
Has slowed
As the light fades
Across the sky
Wisdom sings another chorus
Out of the blue
That song stuck in my head
I sit in the eagles nest
As the sky opens
And the shadows dance in the grand chasm below
A million years of stone layers split
To reveal my past lives
And I still wait

Writing 101 – Day 1/Free writing

Another day

Wash, rinse, repeat

Failure, disappointment, and yet the days pass

Hope lights the morning sky

but with it anxiety

that it will just be another day

another day of oppression

another day of failure

just another day

but hopeful that this new dawn will bring a new day
