For me, inspiration is a spiritual experience that happens unexpectedly. I simply go about my day while thinking about what I’m doing, what I’ve done, what needs to be done, what I would like to do, what I will do, and suddenly an idea comes to me that perks my interest. I feel inspired to learn about it, which is possibly a new slant on a topic I’m already interested in or something completely unique. I’ll look it up, I’ll buy books on it, and I’ll read until I’ve quenched my…Continue

Milk in brandy your Love is like candy
Take it away if you want to see me cry
You paint image songs in my mind with liquid diamonds from the skies
Bright colored candy canes sugar coated lies
Cotton candy clouds in rainbow colored skies
Even if you know their names never look into their eyes
My heart is a firebirds nest filled with liquid flame
Pleasure burns within my breast and melts the ice of pain
It flutters for a moment trying to…Continue

Write A Poem
Reach up and touch the sky and run delicate fingers through the stars
Watch as the world around you disappears
Look back and see through eyes from afar.
See busy streets and towns run around
The lives moving like insect drones in motion
Look and see you…Continue

I had a plethora of old-timers and experts from which to gain any hints or tips that would cut through the crap and get me off to a good start. These contacts came primarily from the Science Fiction Writers of American. They had some standard warnings and insider…Continue

Last weekend, I had the good fortune to do something I haven’t done since I was a teen — attend a writing retreat.
The retreat to mark my long absence from writers retreats, workshops, and conferences was Writing Our Way Toward Wholeness, an exploration of writing as a spiritual practice. It was incredibly nourishing, and just what I needed after the frenzy of…Continue
