About my blog

My creative writing blog, In the Silence of the Day,  will consist of poetry and short stories I have written, photos I have taken, and images that have inspired me along with a bit of music.  I do love writing prompts so many of my posts will be in response to them.

Hope you enjoy the blog.



About my writing

          There is a freedom in writing, a certain mystery, that has always entranced me. The stories, daydreams, and poems swirling around in my head brought to light with a stroke of a pen have their own aura, made alive once again, made anew once again, each time it is read. It is something that happens to all writers. A poem or a story may be written to express a certain view point yet the reader sees something in that writing the author never expected or aspired to show. It is always a joy for me to see all the different ways my writing is interpreted.

           The process of writing, although frustrating and cumbersome at times, is an adventure I choose to go on time and time again. I make up stories and then write poems in the voice of the fictional characters that are apart of the story I created. I write poems created to express my deepest thoughts, prayers, and longings. Sometimes I hear a story and write a poem as if I was the character in the story. Other times, I see or meet an interesting person walking down the street or in a cafe and write as if I was him or her.

           I write to express the artist within me. I write to make sense of all that is around me. I write for writing’s sake. Some choose to believe that a poem written from the perspective of a fictional character is my own, or a poem written expressing my thoughts is that of a fictional character but each poem written, no matter how it is perceived, has a story between the lines. Each poem is my personal lesson on the process of writing because no matter how much I have hesitated on the usage of diction, or have struggled with my grammar and spelling, or have elated in its conception there are always areas I can improve on and new levels of writing I aspire to achieve.

             I am learning to write better, to express my thoughts clearer, to be a better poet , story teller, and author with each stroke of the pen. The process of writing is a constant adventure that is well worth the persistence and hard work and so I keep on writing, writing so that we may all be heard, writing for the sheer joy it brings to my heart.

Thank you for visiting!,
