Fantasy girl

Her Writing Haven

beauty-2388350_1280I see the way you look at me
With lust in your eyes
No real love to be found there
Underneath your disguise

And I’m tired of being the girl
Who says she doesn’t care
When nobody ever sees her
As if she’s really there

I can fulfill all your fantasies
But my true worth you’ll never see
As long as you keep looking
At the outside of me

Her unspoken words

Confab With Me

And her words smeared all over my soul, though not a syllable was spoken

Spoken Word with Rachel ❤️

Growing Up...

December 10, 2019

The end of the beginning is here and I am honored by our dear friend, the talentedand beautiful Rachel of In Mind and Out who asked me to read her poem, “A Night Full of Subtleties”.

If you have not yet visited Rachel’s blog–you are missing out on so much tenderness and grace–now is your chance.

When Rachel first posted this lovely poem, I read it aloud to my husband–who smiled. 😊

I hope this spoken word piece puts a smile on your face as well. It was a joy for me to create for you, Rachel, and a perfect ending to my own story.

Thank you. 💓🤗💓

Fighting for Balance – Daily Quote

Jo Hawk


They tell us success requires a laser-like focus on a single goal. Then they suggest we create a work-life balance. They say it is necessary to spend equal time on our finances, personal growth, health, career, family, relationships, social activities, spirituality, creativity, attitude, and amusement. The demands are overwhelming, and the wheel of life bumps over us imitating the proverbial bus.

The creatives among us are perhaps more sensitive to the underlying need for harmony. We wrestle with the tension, channeling it into our creations. The stress creates conflict, which we try to harness and incorporate into our work. If we are successful, we convey those feelings to our readers. It allows us to form a connection and tell a story that resonates.

How do you maintain balance in your life?


Keep on writing.

Jo Hawk The Writer
