To lay these
questions down
that circle in my head
leading me to no where-
but just around again.
Do I need to know the answers,
if there are answers? And what if there is not?
For now,
I have chased
them far enough.
Silence
is what
I need.
No words,
no company
just the sound
of my even
breath  
as I write
out my prayers.
I wanted
to give you the world
but I didn't have
the world to give.
I wanted to be spectacular
in your eyes
so you wouldn't
see my flaws.  
Here I am
so very human
and limited
and poor.
My love is small
but it is
yours.
In life
choices
can lead to
emptiness
but sometimes
in order
to receive
we must
first be
poured out.
Fiction takes time...so much time. The harder I pursue it, the more elusive it becomes. After a lot of frustration and over blown expectations, I finally settled down enough to let the story rest inside of me and reveal itself. Yes I am still lost in 18th century France, but I now know what part of France my story moves in. For a while I was in the wrong place headed the wrong direction. I had to go back to the very beginning of the story and discover where the cracks in the foundation of the story began. Slowly I have been working through a chapter at a time. I discovered some old ruts that needed to be removed. The biggest problem with writing is that every world I create has me as the creator. Thus certain themes and images have a tendency to resurface. Sometimes this is a good thing, at others it can get a story good and stuck. I had an old theme, from an old wound that needed to be extricated. Once I got that out of the way, new life began to rush into the story. I would be working on it right now, but Microsoft Word is busy updating or something so I am writing this journal entry instead.
