Poetic Diversions

Note: This blog was originally published on my MySpace blog, August 12, 2007.


I have been so swamped with edits lately. A very necessary part of writing, but it always takes me forever. I’d been on a wicked roll with Broken Thread when I received my final set of edits for Paul’s Dream. Had to stop. Soon to be published novel trumps new story, even if it is royal alien rock star yaoi.

Still, I’ve been having trouble focusing this weekend. Especially whenever I found myself having to rewrite a sentence–spent a lot of time staring at the thesaurus to make sure I didn’t get repetitive with my prose. There was about a twenty minute span there where I abruptly switched screens to write a poem. Nothing deep. Just something fun to make me smile.I’m posting it here, so I hope it’ll make you smile too. Let me know if it worked. Oh, and no reposting without my permission.
