Dlanom joj je pokrivao čelo.

Svakog dana su šetali,

Samo se ramenima dodirivali.

Sila gravitacije je slaba

Njihovi polovi bili su jači.

U krevetu, velikom baš,

Njena noga je uvijek išla ulijevo.

I jedva dodirivala njegove zglobove.

Čak i mekani trepet dlaka

Bio je dovoljan da osjeti.

Za stolom uredno postavljenim,

Sa escajgom, bijelim stoljnjakom,

Ručali su ćuteći.

Smišljali kada je najbolje da posegnu… Continue

thank you Meg Waite Clayton for welcoming me to the novelist - struggling or not group

Thanks for the welcome I received in my email. This is a perfect catorgy for me. Right now I'm struggling but I'm commited to changing that. I'm adding The Wednesday Sisters to my list to purchase. I'm currently working on self publishing my novel. Your website that lists your accomplishments is an inspiration for me to continue writting.

Your Friend,
Colleen Green

When Allies Don't Get It

I had an interesting conversation the other night. My partner, it seems, feels a bit inadequate in that I often seem to be more feminine than her. In this instance, she was referring to my refined choice in underwear, shall we say. Ordinarily, her attitude towards anything this outwardly feminine would be a towering shrug of the shoulders, but somehow when her partner is unintentionally upstaging her, gender guilt surfaces. I may not have much money, but I do make sure that what I wear reflects… Continue

I love spas. I love facials and massages and manicures and pedicures. I love the Zen feeling you get when you walk into a spa and are handed a cool glass of water with the floating lemon slices. The calming harp music always makes me more aware that I need less stress in my life and more essential oils.

The Expense of Snowy Weather (and some more photos)

As you can see from my header photo, sheep always look dirty in the snow. Their fleeces appear a dark creamy colour. At least it makes them easy to find. But it also means twice as much work for the Farmer when he has to ride round the fields with feed in the form of silage bales. This also means having to spend twice as much money on fuel We put red diesel in the agricultural machinery, i.e., tractors and combine, and of course white diesel in our cars.

I Write To Believe

I find myself in another social network trying to get the momentum of searching for the lessons I need to learn in getting my creative life back together. I think I introduce myself differently every time but I suppose it's also a good thing to keep practicing my introductions because it is like repeating to myself what I know about myself as of this point in time.

I've been in a creative dry spell/writer's block for the past 5 years. I have been in and out of creative projects. But… Continue

A Break in the Rain, A Break in the Fog

I wake up calm again this morning. As always, I am alone. I lie still when I hear the rains have turned into a light shower outside. I listen for a few minutes and then open my eyes. The new sunlight filters through my open-slitted blinds and becomes soft finger-strokes on my face.

I use my elbows and legs to half-sit up in my peacock-blue flanneled bed, huge pillows at my back and shoulders. I pull my soft sheets and striped… Continue

My Dad - The Ghost

The end of the year is always difficult for me emotionally. With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas looming just a few weeks away, I find myself thinking of my late father and missing him deeply. Time has not changed that, but dad, always a loving and considerate man, did find a way to let me know he is never far away.

When my husband and I met thirty-six years ago, my father had already been dead six months. My mother kept no pictures around the house, and I had not even a wallet… Continue

Story structure – the secret of compelling storytelling

If I had to pin down the single most important secret of powerful storytelling, it would be structure. Here’s why

This week I hosted a forum on the Facebook group Writers Etc and kicked off with this discussion about story structure. Here it is, slightly expanded, buffed and clarified…

Good storytelling is about grabbing the reader, making them care, worrying them, disappointing them, cheering them up, giving them hope, making them… Continue
