Poetry was my gateway drug to writing. I wrote shamelessly and fearlessly, with teen-angsty superlatives about things I knew nothing about (love, death: you know, the Big Stuff).  I still love poetry and still end up over-writing. But it's wordplay; I just can't get en...

Leviathan meets Vessel amid a tumultuous sea. Mighty appendages grasp the listing hull, dragging it to unfathomable depths. 

A form emerges, damply thrashing, howling mightily. 

The drain is pulled; bath time is over.

The sun is shining, the snow is melting (for the nth time this season), and Winter's finish line is in sight! I know, I know - it's Canada: we could have a snowstorm in April.  But it's been a long and dark few months.  Especially for people who suffer from Seasonal Af...

I'll admit, it's a rather lengthy title, but I am just so excited!  

So I entered another writing competition.  I realize that I work best with tight deadlines and I love being given restrictions like prompts, specific vocabulary, or word count. The prompt? I read it in...

It's my designated Day of Writing. Check.

The coffee is black and hot. Check.

Everything seems like a go, so why can't I just sit down and continue writing my second novel?

The reasons -- excuses -- are en...

 Behold, my new desk! I bought it at an antique shop and probably overpaid for it in terms of its market value, but considering I've been searching for the Perfect Writing Desk (rolltop, not too big, lots of cute cubbies and drawers), I paid a perfectly reasonable amou...

Hey readers!  I would love to see you do something creative with Being Human - whether you take a picture  reading in an unusual spot, spot someone else reading it, bake a cake, design a diorama, or Bookface it, send me your pics and I'll post them on my website....
