Where I’m at right now.

I'm not writing much at the moment. Not poetry, anyway. My main focus, creatively, has been on musical compositions or trying to make progress with one of several story ideas. I'll likely look to combine two or three at some point, but I need to figure which world/MC I want to keep. Otherwise I've been [...]

Roadmap

There is no roadmap For love The only way to get there Is by going off The beaten track To forge a path Of your own Until you find A heart to call Your home

No End In Sight

Another 100 words in 100 seconds

Another writing exercise where I gave myself 100 seconds to write a story, before editing down to 100 words. It seemed too good to be true. Not only had this muppet dropped his keys, but posted online whereabouts he’d lost them, even adding his address, requesting whoever finds them pop them through his letterbox as [...]
