Power of Words

I feel I spend way too much time watching television or video-chatting with my girlfriend or tweeting or Facebooking to be able to create enough content for the next few months of blogging. Frankly, I’ve fallen off the blogging wagon, giving away to work and worrying about work, working to try to stop worrying about bills…well, you get the picture. I find so many other things that keep my mind cluttered so I cannot write. Well that stops here. It is a Wednesday evening and Criminal Minds is playing low in the background on the TV in the living room. My excuse tonight is that I need the company and the sound of voices in the next room is somehow comforting. However, the voices are not calling me to watch television tonight—at least not yet.

Nevertheless, I am a serious poet, not the couch-potato you might imagine. I devote much time to the art and craft of writing. Recently it paid off with the publication of several of my poems in the 2014 Durham Editing and E-books poetry anthology, Words of Fire and Ice. I’m excited to share these pieces with the world. The power of words and the purpose of poetry is evident with the publication of this anthology. Shortly after the release of the anthology, Words of Fire and Ice took the #1 Bestseller status on both the Poetry Multi-Author Anthologies and Poetry Anthologies via Smashwords!! Who says poetry is dead???? Woohoo!!

I invite you to lose yourself in the full range of human emotions. Happy, sad, up, down: you will soar through the sky and plummet into theWOFI Google Plus Cover-IRF deepest despair, all through the words of fire and ice contained in these pages. As you read, you will become wrapped in the magic that is poetry. Breathe in the words, and share the raw emotion captured on paper, written in blood, sweat, and tears.

Finally, I appeal to all my fellow writers, to keep on writing, submitting, entering contests, attending open mic nights at your church or synagogue, being rejected. Your ship will come in—I’m sure of it. This website is all about persistence and perseverance. It never goes out of style and it always pays off. It’s all good stuff. The editors at Durham have a simple motto “Let us help you publish your masterpiece.” They did it for me—perhaps they can do it for you.
