Since my childhood, writing has been my obsession. Publication of my work was never a consideration, I simply loved (and needed) to write, especially poetry.
When I began to have an urge to write a book for middle-grade children, my favorite literary genre, the dream of publication reared its ugly head. That was also when I decided to begin this blog. It has been a wonderful adventure!
I feel as though I have been doing this for years, not the actual few months since the blog’s launch. I have met many new friends and discovered beautiful talent in my time here. It has been an invaluable experience.
My writing is inspired, in large part, by my faith in Christ. My family and life on a Kansas farm are springboards for me as well. The fact that I am a fan of children – all shapes, sizes and quirks, adds flavor to the mix. Children who have learning disabilities have been my heart’s work for more than twenty years. My poem “Questions for a Flower” is actually about children who are determined to bloom in spite of adversity and often without any encouragement in their homelife. They inspire me daily!
Now that you’ve been introduced to my sources of inspiration and
obsession desire to write, welcome to flutterings. Most of my posts here are poetry, which is my first love in the field of writing.
“Lovisms” (memes that express my view of true love) are an extension of my poetry category.
“Crush on Words” was born from my passion for words and meanings. I’ve chosen to post words I find interesting, beautiful, unusual, or simply hilarious, along with their definitions.
I have also posted a few inspirational quotes and my short articles – insight into what makes me tick.
Working with backgrounds and photos for my posts is an enjoyable and relaxing pastime for me. My own photos are not fantastic, but my daughter, who is a professional photographer (Moments Captured by Emily), graciously provides her fantastic photos for my occasional use.
I have become a Microsoft Publisher, Adobe Photoshop, Picmonkey, Canva, etc. junkie. I can spend hours working on backgrounds for staging poetry and definitions. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy creating them.
Thank you for visiting! I try to post often, so please come again and let me know what you think of the site by leaving a comment! God Bless!
