Little Did I Know

What you might see
on the surface
is not necessarily
what is so

Little did I know
when they took
an interest
in my heart
the beat of my heart would become their own
the rhythm of my song
would become their own
the splatter of my paint
would become their own

It was only when
I found out
I didn’t know who I was anymore

The light came on

My heart started a rhythm
to the song I owned
my paint became brilliant
to my own eyes

Little did I know
but I know now
it was the rhythm of the rain
that made me grow

National Poetry Month Day 18 has been penned. Thanks to the prompt from
Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides: “For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Little (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write your poem. Possible titles include: “Little Guy,” “Little Richard,” “Little Mermaid,” “Little Italy,” and “Little Words That Pack a Big Punch.” I think if you think about it for a little bit, you’ll find a big (or little) poem to write.”


Write Now! 2019 Triangle Association of Freelancers Conference – Coming Soon!

Triangle Association of Freelancers is holding their annual Write Now conference on April 27, 2019 at McKimmon Center in beautiful Raleigh, NC. With the setting at the NC State campus, this is a fitting location for learning new skills, sharing, networking and so much more. Where else can you – in just one day – pack in a lot of learning, meet best-selling authors, make new friendships and meet with your old friends? Learning, fellowship, and fun is what I sum up my experience with Write Now. I always come away with more knowledge, practical skills, and an overall feeling of “can do” about my writing.

I cannot say enough about the value I have experienced with Write Now. The comfort level for someone like myself is awesome. There is such a positive energy it’s hard not to catch the good vibes!

Now…the nitty gritty… Here is the list of presenters and keynote speakers:

Write Now Presenters

I have been a TAF member for about three years. Meetings are almost monthly and there is always such warmth with the group. There is a message board where we can share with trouble shooting, successes, challenges, resources and more. Even those who live far away remain TAF members. In the last meeting they made it possible to conduct a Facebook Live event. This is something that will be ongoing. After the meeting a post is posted on the YouTube page. 

Here’s the presentation from the last meeting: YouTube

Recently, I wrote a blog post for the TAF blog. It was about mentorship. So much of what happens at TAF meetings is mentoring. Here’s the LINK to my post.
