Mini Waves
You won't need your surfboard to ride these ankle bitters. Extremely short poetry and "tweet" length writings I tend to put in my blog ("A Piece Of My Heart 18+: A blog to house my musings, curiosities, and fascinations. ), so feel free to leave a comment or send me an email. I'd love to know what emotion you felt while reading the poems and if I was able to tell a complete story in the tweets. Thank you!

Let's start off small. Grab your sand board or, like me, you can body surf if you prefer! *Delight* I'd love to know your thoughts on the imagery and emotion in the pieces. I'm starting to experiment more with form/structured poetry, so any pointers would be very helpful. Thanks!

Big Waves
I see a heavy set coming in now. We may need a tow in for these suckers. The first folder contains all my writings pertaining to my character, Special Agent Ella Colson. She doesn't know how to hold her tongue, and I have a bit of fun putting her through tough situations just to see how she'll cope, so the rating is a bit higher. Enter at your own discretion. *Smirk* The second folder is the current project I’m working on. It’s in a very rough state still, so any comments you have are appreciated!
