“An opening line should invite the reader to begin the story. It should say: Listen. Come in here. You want to know about this.”—Stephen King

Summer 2018: I want to remember this summer as the one where I daringly opened a file on my computer desktop and labeled it: BOOK.

I don’t know how long it will take me, but the important part with any dream is to BEGIN. Just start, jump in, cast away the fear and see what happens. It feels scary and more real to write about it here, but also exciting. It means waking up before the sun or staying up with the stars, but in the end I feel proud to know that the words are spilling. I’m writing in the margins of motherhood and life. Here it is guys: the new hope, the new project, and we’ll see where it leads.

What’s your latest dream? Have you leaped into it yet?

I am all things fire and water -
a burn rippling through their skin
they only wish for me to settle.

And after the first inferno
there's still a burning in my chest
the smoke has cleared
the embers coated with ash
but the burning persists
slow and numbing
the eternal flame
no amount of water can extinguish
it grows and spreads
rages for days
for miles and miles
burning entire towns to the ground
molten hot lava runs from my lips
dripping down my chin
only to reach the earth
in Cadillac sized drops
suffocating all the living
leaving only charred shells
remnants of the devastation
to tell the tale
of a women burned.
