C&C always appreciated. Let me know what you think in the comments below, and remember to subscribe to the blog!

Salve!

Today’s writing has been brief, but I managed to get to 58,000 words. Today’s writing focused on Aurelia, the princess that everyone loves to hate (or perhaps, just loves). My goal for NaNoWriMo is 80,000 words, so just 22,000 to go. I can do this! Remember to subscribe to the blog if you like getting these snippets, poems, and more! Read the snippet after the break!

Salve! Welcome back just in time for another snippet of today’s writing. As a reminder, be sure to subscribe to the blog for updates and faster-than-the-speed-of-downloads emails whenever I post! Also, I don’t send spam-style emails, so why not subscribe! I’ve reached 56,003 words today on the train as I’m traveling back from NYC. There’s definitely something about a nice train car and the slow rocking to help one type.

Or sleep.

Or both.

But fear not, typing I’ve done! Enjoy the snippet after the break!

Salve!

Today I have another poetry attempt for you. C&C always appreciated.

In other news, I’ll be back on the writing bandwagon for NaNoWriMo2017 this fall. After all, Laurel Emperor won’t write itself! We’ll just have to get it in around all this poetry.

Middle – Project 27

Hi all,
Everyone really seemed to like my last effort at poetry, so I figured, why not try again?
Goal: 27 pieces of poetry
Theme/Topic: Teaching/School
Why? For kicks! Who knows, I may publish a book out of it (He says, jokingly)
Anyways, here’s today’s attempt – C&C always appreciated, especially as I’m new to this part of writing. I find the experience very free flowing, it’s best when I don’t stop for any reason.

Middle

Forever Stuck
In the middle
Always playing
Second fiddle

Smart and sassy
Young and quick
Quick to give those boys a trip
To the nurse’s office they go
When she breaks their ankles on the field
Or the playground
She goes fast
They go slow

Brothers and sisters
Older than she
Have already been through the halls
She graces now.
But new halls they are,
New friends, new places, new problems
World wise at the age of two times five
Desperate, thirsty for knowledge, she…
Strives.

Stuck in the middle
Playing second fiddle
But will her teacher see
A member of the background chorus she will not be
But rather
A soloist
