My NaNoWriMo Month





If you are here and I am not
Let me assure you that
I will return,
I sit with story and plot
pulsing inside my feverish brow
as fingers move, often too fast
across keys that unfold
a novel before my eyes

poetry is the whisper of the wind in my ear.
a novel is giving birth.
That is the truth my writing friends.

  2. Yippee! 32,000 words! You're almost there. There's a light at the end of that tunnel. You can do it and I love your poem for it. :)

  8. Hello Audrey,

    What a lovely thought. And poem.
    I would love to write a book, but don't fancy the giving birth part. :)
