His carpet is white.
His carpet is white.
Nurse clog prints
stained bus seats.
Shift gone to muck.
Rolled up, cigar style
Rainy days would vaporize
If I had you...
If I had you, rainy

Go check out the latest post on the Late Night Feelings blog, questioning if you should compromise your manuscript. There's a poll so remember to take it! Your input helps!
Day 292 - Should one compromise their manuscript for submissions?
Don't worry, I'll be posting haiku later!
This is a bust.

There are many writers and artists that I admire. Each one inspires me to be bigger and better One of my all-time favorite writers who I would love to be when I grow up (in a writer's sense of course) is Miss Erica "RivaFlowz" Buddington. Her writing knocks the wind out of your heart. It's that powerful. Every time she posts a link from rivaflowz.com on my Facebook wall, I know I'm in for a good read.
Through her blog posts, Riva has helped me see what it really means to be a writer in their 20's, typing away at a keyboard to get to their dreams. Now she needs some help. Riva has the opportunity to go to Callaloo Writing Workshop AND get her book edited by a great editor. She is currently fundraising at Indiegogo. Whether it's by spreading the word or contributing to her fund, I am asking my readers (I know you guys are out there somewhere!) to help out. I'm already doing both because I believe in her dream as much as I believe in my own. If I can't take my opportunities yet, I want to help someone else take theirs. So without further ado, here are the links that will help her get closer to her dream:
Help RivaFlowz Get to Callalloo.
(Her blog post about the campaign)
Help RivaFlowz Get Free Verse Edited and go to Callaloo Writing Workshop!
(Her Indiegogo page)
Share on it Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, whatever you may have. If you have a blog, do a write up about it. Share this blog post if you want. Just SPREAD THE WORD pretty please, my Write Queeners. If you can contribute, even better.
As she always does, Riva has opened up my eyes to something else: Indiegogo. I think I will be looking into starting my own fundraiser for my projects ;)
Have a great Sunday Write Queeners!
And Riva - I hope this helps!
Nude, naked, stripped.
Don't kiss me.
adorned at the base
of her throat,
the lipstick jungle.
Press pause. Freeze your palms
on the source of my demise.
My island is pressed in roses.
