redwriter's world

I am an advertising copywriter, wanna be literature writer, trying to figure out what I want and how to get there. Welcome to my blog, and my world.

December night

There's nothing quite like a winter night and candles lit all over the house. No matter what's going on in your life, it's impossible to feel too lonely walking into a room with candles flickering all around it. Strange how flame can keep you company.

An other good day

The company I work for operates several different websites. I wrote an article and submitted it to one of them, and it was accepted! An other of my pieces is going to published! IT's so exciting that other people are reading my work and liking it. I had started to believe I was never going to get to this point.

Finally published

Two of my poems just got accepted to be published on a new poetry web site. I know, I know, a new site isn't always picky about what they put out there. But this is the first time in my life that someone who didn't know me and has no reason to give a shit about any of my work has said, "I like this. I would like to share it with other people."

I immediately sent the link to, well, pretty much everyone I know who has an email address. Oddly enough, it didn't occur to me until after I'd sent it that no one had really seen my stuff. Usually I'm too shy to share it. (I have a tendency to take my work way too seriously.)

Anyway, maybe this is a start for me. A start of good things to come, or a start for me and my work, which I've never really had the guts to do much with.

The beginning

Welcome to my world. Not sure how interesting other people will find it, but it keeps me entertained, hope it does for some of you too.
