Curse – a poem

Cursed

I swoon over fictional men

There are days when you might feel that to some people your existence is a curse

But know and remember this one truth; you’re so wanted, loved and needed

For anyone who needs a little reminder today ❤

Last week, we highlighted Ann Morgan’s amazing reading project, Postcards from my bookshelf. For each month in 2017, she’s selecting a book and mailing it to a reader somewhere in the world. Readers had much to say about Ann’s book-labor of love. Here are a handful of their responses. Ready for a custom domain, advanced […]

I love Passion. This is a quick taste of passion, please enjoy.

“Once I knew the flavor of you, I’d never be able to survive without it.” It started small, this feeling deep in my soul. This persistence. A darkened calm before the wrath of a storm. I felt pulled in a thousand different directions, but I was grounded by something simmering. It was a gnawing ache, […]

CURSED LOVE WRITING CONTEST

This contest is designed for writers and readers who enjoy a good old-fashioned cursed love story – a type of love, that no matter how hard the heroine or hero obsesses over their love it will not be returned, and if it is returned, it comes back demented or cursed.

This contest begins very soon. Sign up here to be notified!

For those who are damned… a writing contest!

Contest time! I’ve been away for a while, but I can’t in the true spirit of Fall and Halloween, let any more time escape. I love hearing from writers and I love helping writers stay inspired. I’m posting this story to kick off my new writing contest on a subject we all know and love/hate. Cursed Love. Enjoy the story and sign up for contest details below!

Damn his love. I’m not talking about any ordinary, run-of-the-mill love. Nor, I am referring to any definition of love found in books written by well-educated men with capital letters following their names.

This Morning

letting_go_by_bandico-d5s1eyh

I awoke to another mass shooting with no reason, but is there ever a good reason for mass murder?

I usually don’t comment on political issues, I prefer the fictional world. I like to take readers away from their problems if only for a few minutes.

But after so much that has happened this past year, I felt compelled to share my first prayer and my first thought.

My immediate prayer to all, “Before you speak and before you act, I pray that hearts are softened.”

My first thought is once the truth is seen no matter of how ugly or beautiful it maybe, that hearts are able to understand the greater good before action is taken.

Be well and

Stay Inspired,

Shonda
