In honor of Valentine’s Day I’d like to post about three love-related announcements (and some delightfully adorable Deadpool-related photos because that movie blew my heart wide open).
1) Reminder that you can submit a story from the love/superhero themed prompts selected at the beginning of the month to me atAmyoung0606@gmail.com beginning 2/22, which will be published on this here humble blog. See HERE for this month’s prompts and HERE for my post about how I’m writing mine for this month.
2)I traveled all the way across the internet to one of my favorite author’s blogs in order to post what I love about writing. She was gracious enough to allow me onto her blog space in addition to putting up with my super fan antics as I continue to gush and fawn over her writing on a daily basis. Read my short post here!
3) I’ve written a poem. Not a good poem, but a poem nonetheless. This poem expresses my love of writing. Enjoy!
Ode to Writing
Every word I write, I love you more.
Every scratch of my pen, I know you more.
A plot device there, a metaphor there,
Brings me closer to who you are
Late nights with strained eyes—burned out creator,
I yearn for you to reveal your true nature.
I dream of life for you beyond these walls.
With friends, strangers, readers young and old.
You, dear creation, will be a book one day.
It is my love for you that paves the way.
Happy Reading and writing!!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
