“La Sangria De La Vida”
The March issue of the flash fiction and poetry magazine Short, Fast, and Deadly is now available for reading online or for purchase. I have two poems, “Captive” and “Interruption,” in the issue. Check it out!
No real theme today–mostly just fun stuff!

I will have new content live almost daily now; whether I’ll have time to post it daily is the question!

With three brand-new gigs (whoo-hoo!) that are all ongoing, plus my older ones, there will be much more to come!
Ahh, I didn’t make the 30 poems in 30 days! But I did write 18, which isn’t bad. I won a few more trophies, too:
Also wrote these new ones–all very quickly, trying to meet that deadline!
Did anyone else participate in National Poetry Month? I’d love to read what you’ve written. Feel free to share them or links to your work(s) in the comment section.
I also have a new article up at Valley Scene Magazine. Check it out!
Also, has anyone seen the film While She Was Out yet? I remember really enjoying the short story in college and am wondering if the film is any good. Might have to check it out!
I just love winning trophies at AllPoetry. It’s just for fun, and you enter more to be read than to win (at least I do) but winning sure makes me grin. This weekend I won:
Also wrote a new one for a contest including Harry Potter prompts:
Need to really catch up for NaPoMo; it’s almost over. Tonight I’ve got some time alloted for creative work; maybe I can play catch-up then.
One of today’s prompts from the Awe-Manac is to compose (or create) something with the title Breakheart Pass in honor of Alistair MacLean’s birthday. Maybe that will inspire you (or me!) to create something. Badonsky says that he wrote every one of his novels in 35 days; now that is inspiring–if not a little depressing for some of us at the same time…
I have been so sick for nearly a week now; the only good thing my sleepless nights seem to yield is journaling. Here are a few new poems I’ve written while under the weather (also added to my Poetry page)…
Sending you healthful wishes!
All of my online poetry can be found on this page. There’s a wide range of material, from personal to fantasy, political to spiritual, contest entries, and even homages to some of my favorite media–such as Full Metal Jacket, Mystic River, The Silence of the Lambs, CSI, The Illusionist, and Harry Potter. I hope you enjoy them.
Also, the site that I’ve been working on for the past couple of months is now live and I encourage you to check it out. OnePinky.com is a very loving, supportive community that will hold you during your journey of self-love, acceptance and care. Check it out!
Coming Soon: All of my YouthNoise pieces will be listed together (something I’ve always wanted/needed to do!) in the articles section.
Have a fantastic day,
