Not Writing A Book In My Head – Day 29

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Elizabeth Gilbert’s post (link below) gives the most poignant example of “keeping a stiff upper lip” as I’ve ever seen. Come up with words to describe the resolve it takes to accept things as they are and move on. Explore the meanings of resignation. What part does your faith play in overcoming adversity?  Write about courage. Write about cowardice. Explore both sides of the issue – the attacker, the attacked.  National Poetry Month is drawing to a close. Explore your writings this month and find the common thread, the links you discover as you expand your writing string. What twists and knots tangle you up?  What brews…ready to percolate ?

About Taylor Collins

Taylor writes in fragments - journals incessantly – the sea a recurring theme. She blogs and works on three writing projects at the moment. She was selected to read a twitter poem, written during National Poetry month, for the “Tell Me More” NPR program in 2011. A day diary was selected for publication in Water Cooler Diaries published in 2008 (De Capo Press). She recently completed a small chapbook, a 12-part poem entitled Flame. Taylor receives “real” rejection letters now – a sure sign her work is being read. She paints and writes in her studio/gallery -- Parke Green Galleries located on the site where the US Constitution was first ratified. She spends time thinking when deep thoughts surface. Taylor leads a rather dry life on the ocean she's tossed about on. Be sure to visit her if you're ever in the state that started our nation. Cheers!
