Teaser Thursday

Talk of NaNoWriMo is popping up everywhere lately. This post was going to be about that very topic, but I'm switching it up with a Teaser THURSDAY. I'm also tired and my brain is too preoccupied for writing an actual NaNoWriMo post.

So despite my distraction, I've been working on that new short (it's not very horror-ish) and finally making good use of my moleskine notebook. It was within those sporadically used pages that I found a snippet of a poem or something that I scribbled last year. If I recall correctly, I think it has something to do with the in-universe folklore of my NaNo project from last year.

So for your viewing pleasure, some lines:


She sits upon her sliver of moon,
tossing comets that trail...
Golden dust
from her hands.

Hoping to catch celestial fish,
she casts these
Glittering lines and
in the dark
It rains stars.


Have you found any interesting snippets lately? What random side things do you do to world-build? Can you rec me some good poetry?

See you lovely peeps on Friday for Randomosity. Stay warm and dry (it's cold and rainy here)!

I don't read much poetry but I love the imagery in this! It makes me wish it was dark right now so I could revel in it!

Love the imagery of the celestial fish. And the rhythm is so soft and delicate, just like the words... I don't know much about poetry, but I like this.

I really love the imagery here - it's lovely and I really feel the scene.

Just happened across your blog. It's nice to meet you - your blog looks really interesting. :) I also blog about writing and books (and will be participating in the craziness that is NaNo!)
