    I'm not much of a poet,

    though I respect those who are. I have written a young adult novel and am wondering what to do with it. I'm thinking maybe of Kindle Direct Publishing, but I haven't fully committed to anything yet.

    CHAPTER 1 For me, writing is a way of living,

    it is a way to feel free. There are no restrictions; it is just you. Anyone can be a writer; it doesn't matter if your stories haven't been posted, the most important thing is that you enjoy what you are doing. And what I mean, it is that each word has to have a meaning for you...

    Tears Of Glass

    crying doves across the sky, I feel the pain and I start to cry, but see my tears all made of glass, holding reflections of the past they mirror me and they mirror you, take to the sky as they hold the truth.. unwritten letters in my mind, I feel the loss, and I start to sigh...

    As an 8yr old, I wrote a bit of poetry.

    In song format. But when I chose to share -with the adult in my life who was Supposed To & Claimed To love me the most- she huffed dismissively: "What Is this nonsense?! I don't have time for This..." And, apparently, it crushed my li'l heart. For, from that point forward...

    You can not beat the feeling of

    when you have composed something that means so much to you, when you have expressed yourself completely just in one poem or song. It's amazing, this is why I compose my own creativity all the time. :)

    You can't just write it .

    You have to craft it, chisel it, making sure the voice doesn't stammer about like it's lost in a crowd. You have to bring yourself to pull off the layers, find the pieces that fit and glue it back together again. Sometimes you'll have to crush your words with a mortar and...

    I think I have found my "voice".

    I just need to raise it a few octaves, learn a couple more dialects and learn when just a whisper will do instead of an out loud scream. I write in prose, verse, narrative & song because the words are always finding their way out of me...and I fear what would happen if I let...
