Almost – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS #poem #poetry

socs-badge

I almost had it

I could feel it there

Tickling at my brain

Trying to get my attention

Trying to grow into something

And then came the darkness

And the burgeoning thought

The idea that had been forming

Was lost to Dreamland

Like It Spicy?

Just something I was wondering…

After hearing yet another commercial for a spicy food product (sriracha nachos), I started thinking, what’s up with this trend lately for spicy foods? It seems like just about every restaurant has been featuring some sort of special spicy food. For example, Hardee’s has featured burgers with jalapenos recently and Wendy’s now has burgers and fries with ghost peppers. I know there are some others, but those are the first to come to mind.

Is spicy food really that popular lately? If so, why? It’s not that I have anything against spicy food. I like a good, mild spicy item every now and then (though spicy doesn’t seem to agree with me much anymore). I’m just curious as to a reason for the trend and if it really is that popular.

11 Quirky Truths About Being A Writer

101 Books

After a decade or so of doing this writing thing, I’ve decided that writers are a unique lot. We’re kind of weird, wouldn’t you agree?

Recently I noticed some of my own quirks and thought I’d write them down.

But, certainly, these can’t just be truths about me, right? Certainly, you guys who write deal with the same stuff, right? I’m not the only one, am I?

You tell me if you’ve noticed the same things:

How To Survive A Relationship With A Writer

Some good tips to keep in mind 😉

Jack Ronald Cotner

I discovered this list of top ten tips on how to survive a relationship with a writer over at www.writerswrite.co.za

Numbers 4, 5, and 10 are definitely sage advice.

Top Ten Tips

1. Never ever ask when the book will be published.

2. Do not ask a writer if they wished they’d written the latest best seller.

3. Never say you’re writing a book. Never ever say you’d also write a book if you only had the time.

4. Don’t call the police if you happen to see a writer’s browsing history. The average writer is not planning to poison you, hire a hit man, or move to Afghanistan. It’s simply research.

5. Leave the writer alone when the writer is actually writing. You have no idea how difficult it is to enter the zone.

6. Don’t pick unfair fights with a writer. Writers do get their revenge in print.
