Writer’s Quote Wednesday – When patience is not your virtue


Writer's Quote Wednesday

Waiting isn’t an in-between time. Instead, this often-hated and underappreciated time has been a silent force that has shaped our social interactions. Waiting isn’t a hurdle keeping us from intimacy and from living our lives to our fullest. Instead, waiting is essential to how we connect as humans through the messages we send.

Jason Farman, Delayed Response: The Art of Waiting from the Ancient to the Instant World

“What to do when you start getting impatient with yourself?”

Today, I found myself turning to Google for answers to this question. For reasons I cannot pinpoint, I started feeling impatient with myself. That I have not — cannot — write creatively. That my books lay unopened. That I’m being lousy in managing my blog/IG/Facebook page. And many more.

It scared me that I’m putting the blame on myself again. I know it’s wrong and I know I keep saying…

If I love You…


We are more than sunlit afternoons 
And carefully crafted love letters,
More than the poetry and the art we create…
But in this moment of playful banter,

I squeeze your hand
my heart still flutters
When you squeeze back.

Seek the Serenity

Savvy Raj

Seek the Serenity in the Silence

Care to tune in
Listen to the intuitive
The meditative, contemplative
The reflective & the restorative voices
There is a connective wisdom
In the sounds of silence
Emanating from you.
It is your precious inner self
Expressing itself.
Be mindful and attentive
Listen if you can,
Every once in a while.”
Embody the peace within.
Seek the Serenity  in the Silence

Savvy Raj

Daily Prompts- That first love

Keep it alive

How to describe that feeling

When I fell in love for the very first time

Memories buried in ancient history

Dim and distant details difficult to recall

The time which I need to go back to

Lies decades ago when I was just five

There was this cute boy in my kindergarten class

Who had stolen the hearts of nearly all the girls

The spirit of romance in little hearts awoke

All in the party were eager to be the one

Now I can’t even recall his name, but I still remember

The feeling, that first crush!

In response to the following prompts;




Cordial, Spirit, Wine






Your first love

The 2020 Daily Writing Challenge – August 18

Jo Hawk

2020 Daily Writing Challenge

Writing is like driving at night in the fog.
You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
– E. L. Doctorow

Today is Day 231 of the 2020 Daily Writing Challenge.

Did you write yesterday? Half of the year is in our rear-view mirror, and I am drawing a line in the sand. The targets I missed, the stories I didn’t compose, they no longer matter. These last six months are history. Done. I won’t lie, 2020 kicked me in the head, leaving me stunned, unsteady, and incapable of completing anything beyond basic tasks. I bet I am not alone, but don’t count me out yet. They say what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, right? I am confident I will discover I am more capable than I have ever been. I dug deep, reevaluated my annual goals, and I decided…
