Coldness

Any other time of year-

I look outside for an escape, to escape.

Not today, the cold it seems has expanded from inside me to out. 

Desolate, sad, and the anti-hope.

There is no relief.

I seek release.

Instead, I’ll run my pen over the paper yet another time.

Success Should Be Celebrated

Hello Everyone!!!

I just realized I failed you in the month of November as I went through my successful NaNoWriMo experience.

How did everyone else do? Any big takeaways? Anyone going to continue their story?

I am very pleased with my plot and I fully plan to review, edit and take it to completion. 


Also here’s the third edition of our Authors & Beers- it’s a fun way to look at the end of NaNoWrimo.

I’ll be back later this week with some new poetry 📓📓📓

NaNoWriMo – End of Week 1 Updates

Hello Everyone!

Week 1 is quickly coming to a close, we should be at the 10K mark by the end of the day, I took yesterday off so I am playing a bit of catch up but I think I will make it.

How is everyone else doing?

Today I have also released the first in my series on Hard 12 Brews (CO beer Blog) of Authors and Beers. Click the link below to see what beer I am pairing up with Ernest Hemingway.

Happy Writing!

NaNoWriMo Begins – Happy Writing 

Hello everyone!

Today is the big day –  as you can see I got very specific on my plot layout. Well, at least I have an idea for my plot.

I prefer to do all of this on the fly and let the ideas roll, the story goes in all sorts of directions when I write like this. It’s all part of the adventure and I’ll keep everyone updated along the way.

It’s not too late for us to become writing buddies 😉 

NaNoWriMo 2016

Hello Everyone!

NaNoWriMo is coming, can you believe it’s 7 days until go time?

I can’t believe it but I have started to tentatively lay out a storyline and/or plot, it depends on how you want to view it. No more than a page or two just to give me something to run with once the clock strikes midnight.

How many of you are participating this year?

This will be my 5th and I have won 3 out of the last 4 times.

This one will be a bit more difficult than the last few attempts. I will be updating this blog, traveling to California for a week and keeping my beer blog regularly updated.

Check the link below to see the fun things we will be doing with Authors and Beers for the month of November – I would appreciate  the support there too (go ahead and give it a follow), you guys have been so great on this blog.

Beer and Writing | What To Look For In November

Want to write with me?

My NaNo name is Liah2131

Anyone doing something new and different this year to increase their chances of winning? I am always on the hunt for tips for success.

4 am 

Early morning, late at night.

I heard someone talking about you again.

Unlike most he spoke in reverence of your peace, of your creative space.

Spoke out of love – no one else is around, up during your moment each day.

I haven’t visited in a while.

I have no excuses – only lies to me.

I need to stay up or get up.

4am the time for poetry, novels, stories and if I am lucky, the perfect sentence. 

Fall into the flow

Only when I am trying to shut off my thoughts does my subconscious dance freely.

It’s a game we both play – a wicked dance.

When I need you or want you – you can’t help but saunter off into the corner.

Tucked away in comfort, drifting towards dreams you pull me out of bed.

A single scene, a glib piece of dialogue or a character that I know I’ve met but can’t place.

All entertainment, value and stories I need to hear but they don’t exist.

How can it be?

How can I put them down in words?

It will become an obsession –

It will eventually torment me – 

Maybe that will be enough. 

Pardon My Absence

Hello All –

I am sorry I have been away for a little bit over a month. It has taken quite a bit of time to get my beer blog up and running. Not only that, but a scene for a new novel popped up one day on the drive to work and I have been fleshing out the story line every since.

I am back back now and I promise to get back to regular posts.

As always I appreciate your support!

Happy Writing!
