Songs To Write To #2

I’ve been in a bit of a mood lately, sometimes sad… sometimes feeling nothing at all. And in those moments, these are the songs I tend to listen to. Sometimes it’s to help bring forth a good and much needed cry. Other times it’s to gather feelings for a story, emotions I can’t gather andContinue reading “Songs To Write To #2”

“It’s Been” by Cortney Joseph

I find it hard to put into words the changes I’ve felt come over me.   It’s been scary, but amazing. It’s been stressful, but empowering.   It’s been bubbling within my mind and soul, pushing a stronger and wiser woman to the top.   It’s been calming. It’s been peaceful.   It’s been God.

We can find ourselves inContinue reading “For The Struggling Creative.”

Throw Away Week [October 2018]

It’s really no secret to those who know me well, and those who have been following my work as a writer for a few years now that I am good for starting novels or full length stories, and quitting them more than I actually work to complete them. I kid you not when I sayContinue reading “Throw Away Week [October 2018]”

For My Daddy.

I’ve never been the best at, or the most comfortable at expressing everything I feel. Not even when it’s obvious that my emotions are taking over and threatening to spill over into what always seems to be a wreck of a life. Never been the one that wanted to place the burden of my feelingsContinue reading “For My Daddy.”

Black Pearl (by Cortney Joseph)
