Literature
A riddle~
I am the heart of darkness and within me you dream
I pull the light into myself but never do I lighten
I can be chased away by the dawn but always do I return
I will never be found in the light, not even if you split it

Literature
thoughts upon god
God is the Universe
And the Universe is God
And both are beyond Human Understanding
And yet trying to Understand makes use Human
And Humanity is akin to Compassion
And Compassion is what makes us Godly
And so God can be felt through our love for each other
And God can be seen in the light of the stars
And God can be heard in the voice of a friend
And God can
And God is

heart of a star
the universe is divine
but divinity goes beyond the universe
and the universe doesn't care about us
but the universe is in us
we are just tiny and mortal
floating, like jetsam, on the sea
of time
but divinity is in us as well
and each of us once formed
the heart of a star

ideas
ideas are sometimes said to have substance
if ideas have substance (and they do)
does that mean they have matter
if ideas have matter
does the law of conservation apply to them
can an idea die
or can it only

Roots
The roots run deep
In this old heart
This old tree
This old hag
Withered hag
Gone cold with time
Willow weeping
For all of time

Songs Unsung
Sometimes I doodle poetry
Little leaves in the margins
Nonsensical ramblings
Songs unsung
Words that lack meaning
Scribbled and scrunched
All together

Skipping
Her orange hair flew freely behind her as she skipped across the green, unbridled joy on her face. Her hands hovered awkwardly around her chest as she adjusted her bra, mid-skip. And then the girl, no woman, was lost from sight, her freedom intact.

Literature
Happiness
I have been happy, generally, but it's an empty sort of happiness. It doesn't exist through the presence of joy or passion, though I do have love, for certain. Rather, the happiness exists in the general absence of sorrow and shadow. There are few black clouds over me, but the ones that do overhang do so because of a lacking. The lacking is a loss of joy.
Once, I took pleasure in things. I enjoyed my writing and grew attached to the written word. Once, I stayed up well into the night, devouring stories and characters and ideas. Once, I was passionate about things, silly things mostly, but at least the passion was there. Once, I thought myself a musician. Ando once upon a time, I had incredible ambition. I was going to be poor, but revered in my field and above all, deliriously happy. I would have a husband and two children, in a little house in the woods.
But now the way forward is clouded with fog and I can't see any future at all. And being blind, I am terribly afraid. I've lost my w

Literature
Titles are for Squares
It starts with lust and it becomes a case of longing. Yearning to touch them, to feel their body moving beneath you. It starts with the desire to tenderly caress them. Your body grows hard with the urge and the surge of energy. The surge of hormones, coursing through your prone form...It starts with lust, but it always ends in loneliness.

Fear
Angst
   Fear
The mind shutting down
   and falling silent
   but filled to the brim
   with mindless terror
A shaking and a quaking
The teeth chatter
   and the hands clench
   without being clenched
I am afraid

In the Garden
In the garden is where I chose to rest
My head upon the grass so green and soft
White flowers and blossoms of gold all round
A little brook chuckled over grey stones
I lay me down to sleep and passed the time
The sun was low upon the horizon
When I awoke from my peaceful slumber
So peaceful was the blue and beautiful
In the garden is where I chose to rest

Ingenue
They tell me I'm being type-casted because I'm pretty and I have a lovely voice. Everyone always compliments me on my fair skin and dainty hands. When I allude to wanting other, more interesting roles, people just smile condescendingly. "Oh that silly Sarah," they're probably thinking, "doesn't she realize that she's too small and innocent to be a character actress? No one would ever believe it if we cast an ingénue in the role of villain." Silly, sweet, naive Sarah. Nobody ever takes her, that is, me seriously. Just stick to what you know, Sarah.
People seem wary of me when they recognize me from my roles. Don't they know that I'm an actress? Don't they realize that I'm not really like the characters I portray? They tell me I've been type-casted because of my dark skin an impressive stature. My voice fills the theatre magnificently and the heroes of the play fall before me (until the final act, that is). Sometimes I'll express a desire for other, simpler, more heroic roles. "With

Herstory
She has a mouth on her,
that woman down the street
with the magpie eyes
and the skin that shrinks away from touch.
She's a firework,
that woman with the ramrod spine:
she says she doesn't need a man
and two joined hands at the altar
are two hands wrapped in chains.
They murmur about her,
those women up the road -
in the grocery, at the bank -
painting whispered targets on her turned back.
They are caged birds, she says:
silent slaves in their own homes
tucking helpless husbands into bed
and wiping liquor-stained kisses
from their lips.
She lives outside of their boxes,
that woman with warnings splashed over her skin.
She lives strangely, gloriously.
Deliciously.
Her skin is her own;
her words belong to her own lips.
Much better, she thinks, to rule alone
than to hide meekly behind a man;
much better to be a rocket, a supernova,
a voice cutting through the chaos and the chains
like a meteor
blazing through the heavy dark.

Prose Critique Basics
Prose Critique Basics
Critique... we all want it. We all need it. But what exactly is the embodiment of this fear-inspiring, often frustrating word?
Ever since dA rolled out their advanced critique system in 2009, I've made it a point to read through many prose critiques, mainly in seeking a person to look at my own work. While most critiques are helpful to some degree, it never fails to surprise me how many exist out there are nothing more than in depth comments. Just the critic's opinion or view on the piece, which is usually made of nothing but positives. In short... a review. Of course, the receiving authors snatch up whatever feedback they can get, but are all those stars really fair to them?
A critique is by definition, the art of criticizing, which in turn means (according to dictionary.com): to censure or find fault with. So it stands to say that a proper critique would imply the seeking of faults, right? Not an Amazon.com type of review, or a

The Use of Adverbs in Fiction Writing
Adverbs are dying.  Over the barren wasteland of Adverbia, a cold sun sets over the crest of tangled, bony branches on gunmetal-gray trees, silhouettes of mountains in the distance, and long shadows stretched over cracked, curling pads of parched clay.
Why?  Why are adverbs relegated to the path of the dinosaur in fiction writing?  What's so doggone wrong with adverbs, anyway??
Well, there's a few simple reasons for it -- and maybe there are a lot of reasons for it, but I've identified a few simple ones.
The goal here, of course, isn't to make you feel foolish or inadequate if you're one of those adverb-happy writers, but to demonstrate a better way for you to improve your writing.  For those of you still in school below the University level, think about this: you can blow your English or creative writing teachers out of the water with this information, and won't you be the envy of the rest of your adverb-reliant classmates?
I know,
