DAY 4: Smoke rings read my fortune, blankets all I am—hidden meanings and secret truths I’ve yet to understand. And he—the one who haunts my dreams—remains faceless. The news speaks of bomb cyclones and Niagara Falls freezing; I guess anything is possible…
**I will post everyday at noon MST.

Last year on 1/1/18, I began a twitter story that was supposed to run all year, but due to a flu that knocked me down for about three months and then other life stuff, the story didn’t get that far. Although it is not the first day of the year, and it’s a year later, I’m going to begin the story again. Last night on Twitter I posted Day 1. Today I will post Day 1 and Day 2 here and continue until…whenever. Let’s see how long I can write it.
I hope you enjoy it!

Day 1: This is not a love story… How could it be? It shouldn’t be, but last night a warm scotch and the shadow of a super moon illuminated the black hole of a cold broken heart…and I glimpsed things I never knew before… #kw2018/2019twitterstory
Day 2: The dance of Whiskey & Moonlight swirls and pulls life out on to the page. Raw, disconnected. Echoed silence whispers to me- go into the dream and I will be there… the shadow cast is wide, no more going inside… #Whiskey&Moonlight©2018/2019 #kw2018/2019twitterstory #fiction
DECISONS, DECISIONS, DECISONS.
“The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.” ~ Unknown
Life is all about decisions. The same is true when we write. WE create our worlds from characters to the plot. The idea blossoms into a draft and then into a finished product, the entire journey filled with thousands of decisions. Don’t be afraid to make them. Have fun with them. The decisions we make are the creative juice that make our writing rich and luscious.
“This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until it’s done. It’s that easy, and that hard.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Some days there’s nothing…
Today I give in to the silence. I stopped fighting it. The demands have ceased. The frustration gave way to acquiescence. Today I let go. In the quiet I will find truth and maybe some beauty.
