let us create

someday #letuscreate


I've been looking for a place to share some ugly poetry, some unfinished stories, a mish-mash of all the things I want to write. And I want you to feel free to join in with me. Don't worry about it being finished or beautiful or published. Be brave. Let us create. Here. I'll go first.



I am an old woman in this young girls body

My flesh and inabilities stretched right across these bones

Your fragile weight precariously placed upon my shoulders

I love you don't you see? and that is our sweet dilemma

My love runs too deep like an ache un-relieving

You ache too and with this your aches become mine

I can see our tapestry once woven

But the seams split apart in the centre now

We ache together but in different rooms separate places worlds away

do you feel this too?

I wonder I wander Often

Wonder if anyone can be further even with this proximity

I long to rub your ache away to feel your withered fingers but you, too, are old

Wise and old and only a boy

You'll sleep soon, I know and when you wake I'll be here

Our stories spread wide our exhaustion worn thin

And you'll know my love my achy, desperate love a love in which I've had for you your whole life long



When you link up you'll be eligible to win a huge Choose Brave print bundle featuring my own hand lettered prints. I'm excited to read your words!

Let us create


I like you people so let me tell you a dream of mine: I want to someday have a fiction book with my name on it. I love fiction.

I love poetry.

I love stories.

And sometimes I find that there isn't really a place for me to share these short fiction stories, or midnight poetry, or scenes of a movie that have danced round my head.

So. Let us make a place.

Let's have a place where we can collide worlds of fantasy and fiction, of poetry and prose, of things we've always longed to write. I have about seventeen unfinished books. I'm pretty good at writing only the first chapter.

The unfinished chapters of the book you're hoping to someday write? That's welcome here.

The scrawled out thoughts on the notes section of your phone? That's welcome here.

The poetry that wakes you up in the middle of the night simply begging to be written? That's welcome here.

The lyrics that appear in your head that have been scrawled down on a receipt or napkin? That's welcome here.

The artwork you've always wanted to show someone? That is welcome here.

Your stories -- your raw, unedited, don't-really-want-anyone-to-see stories -- they are welcome here.

So let us create, with words and imagery and lyrics and poems.

Meet me back here next Tuesday (September 9). Bring your works of fiction, your songs, your rhymes and ballads and we'll link them all up right here. And let us be brave, and let us create, and let us share with one another.

I'll see you here.
