Hello! Happy Canada Day on July 1st, and Independence Day on July 4th! I think Canada Day is one of my favorite holidays! Haven’t decided how I will celebrate yet, but at least the weather’s been beautiful! Working on perfecting the first few chapters of my novel to pitch, if that’s possible! Hope everyone is well 🙂
For November Notes Day 24 the prompt song is “Like the Wind” by Triosence and Sara Gazarek. I’m combining the prompt with Sunday a Photo Fiction held by Alistair Forbes.
I know it’s more than a month since November Notes ended but I only have six prompts left (this one included) and then I can move on to other things and a more regular blogging schedule in regards to prompts.

“Like the Wind” by Triosence Ft. Sara Gazarek
Writing is like the wind,
Spiralling chimes into motion,
It uplifts the tired soul;
As the wind, inspiration can be touched,
It’s ethereal, invisible;
Yet, you sense it as it flies through you — around you;
You can’t say it doesn’t exist as like many things —
It’s a matter of faith;
Supported by first, seemingly tenuous strings that many attempt to ignore —
To dissuade you from;
But although they maybe tenuous, these slender strings are mighty,
Their stout pillars support belief in your God given abilities.
Somehow, talent and imagination swirl and form into the plausible, the possible —
When you close your eyes and write.
Imagination is full of wonder, beauty, joy, and love of creativity flowing —
Winding, spinning as wind chimes sing a chorus.
Faith is the core of everything —
It’s love of God and belief that He guides us,
The symphony director composing, omniscient;
That such as each instrument and voice,
We all have a purpose.
And when our pens and tablets call us,
It doesn’t matter what it’s called;
Just that we know and trust what is greater than us —
The unseen — both in the art of writing and in the vast celestial.
Happy December! I feel I haven’t been around so much blogging but I made sure to prepare the last part of quotes for November 2017. I think I’m behind so I’ll have more quotes this week to catch up. But please enjoy these quotes for now to ponder. Have fun with your holiday celebrations throughout the month, as well.
I’m nearly done my Christmas shopping, a few odds and ends to go. How about you? Life is good. Trying to figure my direction out at the moment but excited for what’s coming this Christmas and in 2018. For now I’ll start with Christmas baking and in-between freelance writing will try to finish November Notes along with doing a few more short fiction prompts.
We leave at dawn, the horses saddled and well rested. The gleaming morning light shines upon us and I feel blissful, as if there’s certain hope that wherever we end up it’s going to be providential; it’ll be a land with milk and honey. There has to be a divine reason we were forced to leave our home, why our friends and neighbors burned it to the ground, and why we must rebuild are life in obscurity; God would not dessert us now amidst the endless wilderness, would He?
For November Notes the Day 9 song is called ” 1-800 – 273 – 8255″ Logic featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid. I reversed the songs for Day 8 and Day 9 so Day 9’s actual song was completed yesterday. As per usual combining prompts with Sarah from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix Prompt of a shadorma form poem about emotion.

“1-800 – 273 – 8255” by Logic featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid
“The Shadorma is a Spanish poetic form made up of a stanza of six lines
(sestet) with no set rhyme scheme.
It is a syllabic poem with a meter of 3/5/3/3/7/5.
Thanks to the ever gracious http://www.spillwords.com for publishing my new poem called “I’ll Fly Away, Oh, Glory.” The chorus lines are borrowed from the song “Fly Away” for by Gillian Welch and sung by Allison Kraus on the Oh Brother, Where Art Though? movie soundtrack. It’s an awesome movie too!
