Sorry for the radio silence, kids! Mama’s been on vacation, and (no offense) that meant vacation from you all as well. But more on that later. 😉

For now, check out this poem by The Naga. It moved me, and I’m guessing it will resonate with some of you also.

The Naga

More than ever, the world needs us, the world needs us now, us artists, be a writer, a painter, a poet, a dancer, a storyteller, a designer, build us the worlds that you have imagined, give life to our madness, show the world that it is not only about making money and children, that there are other ways to live life, to accomplish our goals, give meaning to our existence, because we artists never only live once, we live for every single day, we create, we make, we paint and write our souls and emotions into our creations, more than ever, in this age of war and craze, we need you, the world needs you, to create, to bring meaning and dimension to our reality.

Treasure Trove: What I’m Loving Now

There are so many things I want to share with you…the only way to do it properly is by creating this post: a treasure trove of all the golden nuggets I’ve come across in the past couple of weeks.

I hope you enjoy!

This Box of Goodies

I’d heard of Nerd Block and had seen their ads pop up in my Facebook newsfeed, but it wasn’t until I was promised a Stephen-King-themed horror box of fun that I bit the bullet and hit the “subscribe” button.

Yesterday, my anticipated Horror Nerd Block came in the mail…and I was not disappointed.

Among the grab bag of items shown above are an autographed photograph of P.J. Soles (a.k.a. the mean girl in the 1976 Carrie film), a stuffed Pennywise for me to cuddle up with, a Misery shirt courtesy of ShirtPunch, a “REDRUM” key hook, and much more.

And for October, I’m promised an exclusive item from Nightmare on Elm Street as well as some products related to Halloween and Hellraiser. I am STOKED.

This Zombie-through-the-Ages Video

While we’re talking about horror…check out the below.

This Oscar Wilde Quote

(found on Zoe169)

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” – from Oscar Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan

This Kenneth Patchen Poem

(found on Bibliokept)

This Blog Post About Publishing

(found on A Writer’s Path)

Rachael Hanel discusses several things a writer should do before starting the publication process. My favorite piece of advice? Take a writing class. They’re available online as well as through community colleges and universities.

I can’t count the number of writing classes I’ve taken. Hell, one just started yesterday that I hope will help me prep for NaNoWriMo! But more on that later….

This Edgar Allan Poe Gift Set

(available from PLASTICLAND)

The realistic heart actually beats, folks. It’s just too good. And perfect timing, as my birthday is Tuesday. (Hint, hint.)

What books, songs, videos, blog posts, poems, etc., have you fallen in love with recently? Share below!

Incredible poem about a comma, written by one of my favorite bloggers!

Be sure to check out her other stuff.

A Word Of Substance

This is my piece, Comma, which was published with The Noctua Review

,

Comma
It’s the little hours I like best. In between moments of rest and wake, eyes parch like paper. Scratchy and dry they turn toward the edges of something missed by only a mark.
The Almost, but Not Quite of a woman turning her head or the skinny places where buildings almost touch. It’s the cross section between thoughts that mean something and thoughts that want to be something. They intersect, briefly touching in a fleeting moment before the intensity is too much. The period at the end of the sentence seems too final.
