Writing is like an amusement park, full of
fun and adventure,
thrills and screams,
impatience . . . when . . . lines . . . stretch . . . halfway. . . to . . .forever,
disappointment when best rides shut down
or money runs out
but hunger and thirst persist.
Writing is like heavy-lidded weariness as you head on home,
thinking you won’t return for ages,
but awaken refreshed and gung ho for more wild rides.
Where in tarnation did this poem come from? I can thank Katie Dodge
for the inspiration by tagging me. Now it’s my turn to tag three others. It’s a fun tag. Really. All you have to do is finish this sentence, “Writing is like . . .”
So, here goes, the three writers I’m tagging are:
– Because she’s working so hard getting her book about ancient Nubia ready to launch in February, just in time for Black History month. Right now she’s conducting a vote about a new title for her novel, so please take a minute and visit her blog, cast your vote, and if you have a better idea for a title, she’s listening to any suggestions.
– She’s got so many cool posts and is always organizing writer events, plus she takes awesome photographs at conferences and is a friend to everyone she meets.
– Because she’s been supportive of me since the first day I started my blog and offered to walk me through the steps to join Twitter. She didn’t know me from Adam, but she reached out to be my friend.
One last note: The second book in the Monster Moon mystery series, Secret of Haunted Bog, will be released June 15th. It’s for kids ages 8 to 12. If you haven’t watched the two book trailers I designed, please cast your vote for your favorite. Here they are. You can vote in the sidebar or in the footer of this blog. Thanks!
