Author Note — Race to 200

Race to 200

Watch this space!! I will be participating in this writing contest, which means that I will be writing a 750-word (or less) story about a race of some sort by Sunday, March 6th. I love contests, ideas, and deadlines! Woot!


Author Note — Site Appearance

I am trying to get the site to accept certain formatting for my poems.  That means I may need to change the appearance until I can find a theme that I like that also likes my poems.  Thanks for your patience!

Author Note: NaNoWriMo 2006

I completed NaNoWriMo in 2004, 2007, and 2010.  I did write the other years, but didn’t complete what I started for various reasons.  Just as I have a couple of unfinished stories early in this blog, I’d like to take a whack at my 2006 story here.  I would post what I already started, and hopefully that’d inspire me to finish the story, or at least the first draft of it!

Author’s poetry note

Only four more poems left.  The issue with them is the formatting.

It was weird re-reading these.  Some are remarkably depressing.  Others I remember as being my favorites.  For example, Deranged Fruit came about because the poetry teacher had words in a jar and you had to pull two of them to create a poem.  He was just the sort who enjoyed a poem about deranged fruit, too.  There were some in my poetry class who didn’t get Aerial View (seriously?) or History Test.  Crime Scene is one of my favorites, but again I’m not sure how many people would get it.

I have other poems that are not a part of this collection, but I also want to get the prose posted as well.  This should encourage me to get back to writing!!

Feel free to leave reasonable feedback.  If you have to say something is crap, at least find a creative way to put it!


I graduated (2009) LeMoyne College with a BA in English — Creative Writing. Graduating included submitting a poetry portfolio. I will try to get those poems posted here in the next couple of days. Then I will post the fiction submitted for that program.

My Main Blog

My main blog

Also trying to do a teacher blog, but I don’t like how it’s sounding so I don’t know how long it will last.

The rest of the paragraph

Someone else posted a link to the rest of their first paragraph. Here is mine:

She was definitely dead. It wasn’t just that people don’t usually lie there on the floor in that position; the darkness seeping from the back of her head was a clue as well. So much for getting to catch some of the babel tournament this afternoon!
