Creative prose is my drug of choice. The highs I get from writing a great piece can last for days. On the flip side, some pieces have a half life that haunt me. Some I toss into oblivion, after wringing them out and strangling them a bit. Most days I play with words and let them dance around my brain.
Good writing is fresh, soothing, moving, powerful, and alive.
This is a page is all about my love for the written word. I love the satisfaction of expression. If you’re a writer or word fan too, I’d love to hear from you.

My favourite blog writers:
Naomi Bulger: messages in bottles – Naomi is imagination personified. Her first novella, Airmail, is stunning. I’m also honoured to call her my good friend.
Edenland – Eden is powerful and gutsy and the freshest writer on the internet today. Huge respect.
Wanderlust – Kristin captures emotion, power and strength with her writing. Her writing is simply beautiful.
Rhythm and Method - The home of two gorgeous writers. Nobody can fuse words together with such ease as Karen. And Gill is one of the best storytellers I have read.
Quotes for the writer:

“One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper patterns at the right moment.” ~ Hart Crane
“Write from the soul, not from some notion what you think the marketplace wants. The market is fickle; the soul is eternal.” ~ Jeffrey A. Carver
“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader.” ~ Robert Frost
“All our words are but crumbs that fall down from the feast of the mind.” ~ Kahlil Gibran
“Keep in mind that the person to write for is yourself. Tell the story that you most desperately want to read.” ~ Susan Isaacs
