The Fae Story Aray
by Jennifer Elliott
Some flit and play
Some walk and say what a gorgeous day
All the fae come to the Corps
They share their stories
They share their poems
Pieces of their lives
Pieces of their souls
Some fileted on display
Some in sunshine and glowing
Does anyone outside the Corps
know how much these stories are worth ?
Can they see the starlight that each author gave?
Jennifer Elliott is a nerd, mom, wife, and avid book collector. She loves learning new things and reading new stories with her three little munchkins. Her goal is to write a good haunted house story and then become a better writer as she goes. She recently has been published in both of the Darkness Screams Anthologies. (Howling Deep & Whisper Quiet)
Lorraine is a blind Author. She writes poetry, short stories and maintains a blog. She swears that she was born holding a pen. We have had Lorraine now in two of our anthologies, Fae Dreams and Faery Playground.
Lorraine is based in the UK where she lives with her husband and a rough collie she has named hope. Wheelchair bound, Lorraine is limited to what she is capable of. What she writes is amazing. Her blog, Blindwilderness.wordpress.com is fun and enjoyable to read.
Today we are looking at https://thesoulwhispersblog.com A beautiful blog filled with poetry and self reflection. She says that “Blogging has provided me with a creative outlet and opportunity to connect with other indie authors. I love being a part of the indie writing community.”
When we asked what or who got you started? She responded “I started writing a blog 5 years ago with the hopes of feeling heard. I’m an introvert with a very busy mind. Writing is a creative expression of my inner reflections on experiences, emotional health and spiritual understanding.”
A Canadian blogger who enjoys nature, strong coffee and time with her pup (A Yorkie named Winston). She also loves traveling and experiencing the world through different culture, architecture, food and landscapes. Her creative husband has toured with multiple musicians.
She says of getting writer’s block : “Writer’s block is part of the process. When I experience writer’s block I give myself the time I need to ‘not write.’ At the same time, I also charge through the feelings of self-doubt and questioning by writing in my journal – knowing that I am free to write non-sense, make mistakes, and that a gem may appear in the mess.”
Write. however you need to, just write. dream then put those dreams to paper.
If the topic of the dying flower bothers, you…Then write about change. Did you cause the change? Did someone else? Write about the change, what is the result?
Or if you cannot see how this would be, write about the masks that you wear to keep the peace, and keep moving forward yourself.
This is such a broad topic. For me music is a span. I listen to multiple genres and a huge host of artists. some people are genre loyal or have a favorite artist above all. Whichever you are, write a poem about it. Form is up to you.
