Poetry Friday plus Planet Esme

In honor of poetry Friday, a haiku that sums up my writing progress on MTLB.

Poetry lets me
stand naked wearing only
emotional threads

And fun stuff, the wonderful reading advocate Esme Codell of Planet Esme now has a blog! For those of us here at LJ, I've syndicated it at:planetesme so you can read her on your friends list.

More writing updates tonight. 

Slight update - changed the last word of the haiku from clothes to threads (it was early and I had only drank a cup of coffee before posting!)

Also, I just checked on Amazon and the link to Hugging the Rock is up with the art! Yeah! Go ahead and pre-order now. You know you want to. :-)

Really, I promise writing updates after work.

What a beautiful haiku!!!

I remember loving this format when it was introduced to me in school. I used to play with words a lot, loving every syllable and sound. Guess I still do (g).

Have a great weekend!

Thanks Linda Joy. I love playing with haiku too. I'm reading a lot of it at the moment, trying to absorb from the masters.

Threads is a much better choice. You rock, as will your book.

Thanks. Yeah, clothes was kinda dumb. I mean, how can you be naked and wear clothes, even of the emotional kind? ;-)

And yet, you can wear clothes and still be naked in the emotional sense. Talk about a conundrum.

Yeah, and conundrums usually confound me.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
