31 Day Challenge

Good day, all. I hope your new year is off to a fabulous start and that your muses are content. I am pleased to say that I am almost finished with the fourth run-through of La Flor Manor I. It has taken a while and many changes to have it where I wished it to be when I started this editing project. 

I am saddened to say though, that I will be discontinuing both of my giveaways for now. With my inability to post daily right now, both giveaways have been lacking in participation. Don’t worry, though, I will bring both giveaways back in the near future. So stay tuned for the details on entering and dates for their return. 

Now, some good news. I have started a 31-day challenge with a very dear artist friend of mine. We are going to push each other to achieve in this new year. The challenge goes like this: We have written out daily prompts for each other. She will draw whatever her muse inspires for the daily prompt. I, in turn, will write a piece of poetry inspired by the prompt she has given me. We actually started this experiment 4 days ago, and thus far, the results have been phenomenal. It is interesting what the mind comes up with from the inspired words of another person. 

Once we are done with this exercise, we will embark on a variant of this same process. We will be doing another month of prompts, however, we will each be using the same prompts. I see a promising future for a collaboration poetry/art book in the near future. I can’t wait to see the results and be able to share them with all of you.

I will leave you today with a piece that I will be including in a future book of poetry themed around bipolar and its effects on a person’s life. I hope you enjoy it. As always, inspire to be inspired. Remember, only tomorrow knows what the future holds, today is the time to achieve our goals and desires. 

I am Not Broken

Get it together!!

What is wrong with you?

Why do you act this way?

These questions

reverberate through my

mind, daily. They’re

not required for you

to say.

They twirl around

on the scratched

record, repeating

through my mind.

Their usefulness, like

the record, is flawed.

I am this skipping

record, my melody

is flawed. My mind

spins but returns

to one simple truth,

I Am Not Broken,

merely flawed.
