The Voices in My Head

The clamor
The noise
It is never ending
As they fight for dominance

The heated exchange
The harsh words
The hold out of cookies
As you strive to win
Against the voices in your head

The pouting
The silence
It is never ending
As you fight for dominance

The standoff at ten paces
The silent treatment
The battle for the words
As you strive to write
For the voices in your head

What Kind of Book Are You?

KB put this on her blog, so I decided to try it. Imagine my surprise when I am the type of books I write... :)

You Are Fantasy / Sci Fi
You have an amazing imagination, and in your mind, all things are possible.
You are open minded, and you find the future exciting. You crave novelty and progress.

Compared to most people, you are quirky and even a bit eccentric. You have some wacky ideas.
And while you may be a bit off the wall, there's no denying how insightful and creative you are.

Tuned Up Tuesdays: Flash Fiction

The air rushed through her lungs as she fell through the sky. What would happen when she hit the ground? Would she bounce? Would she survive or just break all the bones in her body? There had to be a way to survive this fall. She just had to think of a way. Every time she jumped on the trampoline these thoughts went through her head. Let's see if I can jump higher next time, she giggled as she bounced back into the air.

Flash Fiction: Family Conflict

KB has said I should try my hand at this, so here is my first attempt at flash fiction. Let me know what you think:

The sound of flesh hitting flesh echoed through the house. A scream followed, high-pitched, hurting the ears, then shuffling footsteps. A screen door squeaked open and an old man shuffled out. He said over his shoulder, “I am going to tell the nurse you hit me.” An old woman stood in the doorway with a smile on her face, “Then you shouldn’t have smacked my buttocks.”

Poetry: A Blank Page

I wrote a poem, let me know what you think:

A blank page stares back at me
The words not there for me to see
The voices are loud in my mind
But refuse to be refined

A blank page stares back at me
The characters wanting to be free
They play around in my brain
But refuse to be restrained

A blank page stares back at me
Until finally a word will be
The voices want to be heard
Until the characters sing like a bird
