Fragments by the Book


I keep journals handy to record short fragments and snippets of current topics. Some are gems. Others mere grains of thought. A year-end contest finds me racing through some stacks of them in the hopes that at least three could be entered. 

Your challenge today should be two-fold. Re-read old works. Garner the best and enter a contest by year’s end.   Here’s a fragment I found that intrigues me…

  • What was left of us? You ask
  • As I cast 
  • Oceans of emotion… 
  • Selfsame repetition 
  • Shrouded again 
  • In mystery…
  • Waves of history
  • Dissolved in undertow…

Maybe I can work this into something enter-able.  Feel free to share what  you find in older works. Do you know what you originally meant in older recordings?  Do you have fragments worth keeping?  

Let your work take on new meaning.  Who knows what could find it’s way into print. Cheers.

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!
