I really like the creative things I’ve written on this blog, but there’s one thing I don’t like because I’ve changed since I’ve been away. I don’t like Marlene and I don’t like anything that confines me as a writer or confines my writing identity. My writing comes from me and my own thoughts and observations that inspire me. There is no muse. There are also no rules. What. so. ever.
That’s why ellie azure is my pen name.
Rambled down an old road, red clay, dust. Sure looked like the gas station was sprung out of 1950 something. Green pumps, an old Coke sign hanging out front, dog lying near a chair the attendant was fast asleep in. I took my gas and left him the right amount and then some, tucking it in his shirt pocket. Dog barely paid me any mind. Too hot. I took a Coke. Popped the cap off. Drew out a mouthful, let the icy carbonation hit the back of my throat and snake its way down. Cans don’t have nothing on bottles. Way it was meant to be drunk.
Headed out on that road again. No idea where to. Been following it for days and it just never ends, wrapping its way around pine. Pretty. But I’m about to lose my mind. Where the hell did the rest of civilization go?
Publishing, writing, writing…working out some things and will start October 1. Aiming to publish in 2014. 🙂
Quiet day on the writing front. Will see what Ms. Marlene has up her sleeve for me this evening when I get off work. Just listening to some good music, job hunting and getting a few things lined up to write (story ideas, outlines), catching up on email.
Really inspired by these authors today: Jillian Holmes, Dawn Pendleton, Sean Platt
The two latest things I got this excited about were getting Borderlands2 and creating this blog with ideas to write.
The sun is my luxury. Can’t live without it. Will really miss it in the winter and will have to make it a point to get outside and lift my face to it every day.
