There’ll Be Bluebirds : Intro by Cortney Joseph

Intro (Sentimental Journey) : Pressed closely to the window, William Taylor tried his best to find some sort of comfort in the seat he’d taken as he stared aimlessly at miles of trees that seemed to blend together without interruption. He’d tuned out the sounds around him hours before, wondering when this part of hisContinue reading “There’ll Be Bluebirds : Intro by Cortney Joseph”

First WIP of 2022. “There’ll Be Bluebirds”.

I’m so excited to announce my first full project of the year! I’m hoping for it to be a short novella or full novel (we’ll see what happens and how the story wishes to be told as I go along), and I have a feeling that it’s going to be one of my favorite storiesContinue reading “First WIP of 2022. “There’ll Be Bluebirds”.”

There’s Progress…

I think we all put ourselves on some type of timeline/deadline to have things done. We set our minds on something and we all believe it’s going to happen exactly when we say. For some people, things do work out just like that. For me, not so much. And, as I’ve said before, I’m learningContinue reading “There’s Progress…”

The Long Hot Summer [Snippet] by Cortney Joseph

Hey! dropping in to drop off a NEW short story!

Soooo … I thought a new schedule meant that writing again would be easy for me, it would flow naturally because I have time now. LOL, I was so wrong. And no, I’m not counting myself out and I haven’t lost my excitement or belief in myself. It’s just that while the ideas present themselfContinue reading “Hello There…”

“Again” by Cortney Joseph

It was all in the way you touched me, Cold, displeased with the surface each fingertip grazed. I tensed, thinking I’d prepared myself for what had become the usual, a tense prelude to the darkness that shone itself in your eyes as you pulled away, hand raised to the heavens, striking with force that knockedContinue reading ““Again” by Cortney Joseph”

Memory Lane by YoLana Crocket

It’d been a while since I’d step foot in this place. It’d held so many bad memories, brought to mind all the tears I’d cried the instant my soles touched the tile. Brought an aching to my heart that I could hardly explain to anyone once I’d manage to free myself of it’s hold. WithContinue reading “Memory Lane by YoLana Crocket”

It’s Our Anniversary!

Do you know what today is?! That’s right, MyPenWritesNice is officially 5 years old today. FIVE! It’s so hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I not only started something big, to me, but I have kept it going in spite of the many obstacles life has thrown my way. I’veContinue reading “It’s Our Anniversary!”

Investments (in self & others) and Excitement (for the future).

I am truly looking forward to the new year.
