Introductions & Personal Links & Blogs - Stop Here First & Say HI!

Posted by   + Show Post
I'm so glad to see you here! I was hoping I wouldn't be the only one!

In the serenity of sweet silence my muse beckons me to dance, to free myself from the bondage of thought and soar above the madness that ties me to this plane of existence. To revel in the release of my spirit and travel to that place where words have meaning and voice and all makes sense. To give the breath of life to my every thought, my every dream, my every desire and let them surround me in the peace that they bring. To fly without fear, with words as my wings, to simply be free . . .

I believe that everyone has something within them that can be spilled out upon a page. Someone once said to me "But I can't write." I say, if you can form thought you can write. It may not be a flowing verse and it may not make sense to anyone but the one who wrote it, but it was written.

You don't need to fill a page with big words or profound epiphanies, you simply need to write what is in your heart. Poetry doesn't have to rhyme, in fact, I think it's better if it doesn't  :o) But that's another post.

I am not the best writer in the world and I am not the worst. I want this group to be a place you can feel free to share your innermost self without  fear.

If you want to learn and grow in your writing I hope this will be a place where you can find the guidance you need. If you want your work critiqued, those who have the knowledge to do so are encouraged to jump in there and share what you know.

I want everyone to remember the old rule 'If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all!" when you are reading and responding to a post.

When I worked on the Chicken Soup boards as a NOVL I felt like I was a part of something magical. I was able to give advice and be advised. Wouldn't it be nice if we could create a magical place of our own?

Well, here's to a new beginnings! Now WRITE!


Share your mugshot with us as well, it's nice to see the person behind the words  :o)

 Hello all,  my name is Laura.  I have always love poetry and writing began in high school prompted by the best english/poetry/journalism teacher that lived.  That was many many years ago.  When I first joined CM,  I got invited to join a private group of ladies who shared the love of poetry.  It was fun.  Members left CM and group was closed.  I wonder if they are still writing somewhere else?  Wish them well if they are.  Anyway,  I look forward to getting back into trying to get my thoughts on paper/computer screen again to share.

I'm Serrah, or RighteusLove, I've always enjoyed writing since I was about 10 years old. Fiction has always been a favorite to dabble in. Thankfully I have major inspiration, as my wonderful husband and children will always lift me up no matter what. They are three of the sweetest angels God has to offer.

I'm originally from Louisiana but I'm in Mississippi at the moment. 

I am anxious to get started and involed in this group. Greetings to everyone.

It"s been quite some time since the group has been active . . Life took the rieins from me and seems to be on a power trip :o) I would love to see the group writing again, new words dancing on my screen. It may be slow going but maybe we can dust off our muses and have some fun with them again!

I do hope to see some of your writing, it feels good to revisit this old friend . . .

Hugs & prayers ~ Crystal


Life is better with art in it . . .
