Season Nuptials…November Poetry, of Course!

  November Poetry, of course! If you follow me, you know I am overly inspired by fall. I apologize to my fiction writers out there, story-writing is also a passion of mine. But here we are in the heart of the season (and the first Sunday of a new month), thus I am sharing my poetry page (https://stepsinbetween.com/poetry/). I’ve even written a new poem for my readers…it’s at the bottom […]

Writing In The Almost Utter Darkness

It’s that time of year again when the moon takes on an eerie glow, much brighter above darker autumn evenings. This strange little season starts in the grocery stores, far too early, in September. Although candy sales aren’t the greatest of deals when you down every morsel before the first ding-dong of trick-or-treaters. But, nearer than a roaming spirit, the holiday is upon is. And as much as I dislike […]

Writing With the Rain

  I am writing with the rain this morning. The house is quiet, as still as the cup of coffee steaming at my side. At the moment, it’s a calmness quite far from the workings in my mind. As a writer of poetry and fiction, a teacher of young students, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend…I feel overwhelmed today. Tranquil time is hard to come by […]

CC’s October Interview: Ann Christine Tabaka, 2019

I am thrilled to kick off my new “CC’s Interview Series” with poet friend and 2017 Pushcart nominee, Ann Christine Tabaka. Although she lives across the nation from me, in Delaware, it feels as if we are sitting together in a warm and cozy coffee shop. The scent of cappuccino fills the air as our poet’s inspiration and experience weave an intricate story. Please, pull up a chair, fill your […]

September Slips into October ~ Poetry Celebration

https://stepsinbetween.com/poetry/ (Wednesday Whims of Poetry) September sunsets strike my soul, but not because the other months lack in opportunity to produce gorgeous sunsets. Rather, I believe it’s the heart’s way of gathering warm hues before the season shifts and Summer’s gone. A quiet way to remember the gifts of frolic and abandon. Gratefulness for the extra hours of daylight; our touché to time. This year, instead of sadness and mourning, […]

Happy Two Years, Writers!

Steps In Between is celebrating two years! This number may not sound as impressive as twelve or twenty, but to say I’ve posted 208 times is a huge accomplishment (personally). I’ve posted writing-journey articles every Sunday, and I’ve shared a poem to my Wednesday Whims of Poetry page every Wednesday for the last two years. That’s 104 articles and 104 poems! In addition, I’m thrilled and amazed (and exhausted) yet […]

Writing Feels Like An Ocean Today

Writing feels like an ocean today. Currants forcing deep swells instead of the gentle spume of a slow tide. Long past are the beachy days of writing to my heart’s content, although I will vacation again, intentionality is now my emphasis. And that’s okay. It’s time for me to focus on the author realities I’ve been dreaming about. I wrote a book. A story that wriggled its way from my […]

Writing Conference Hurrahs!

A few hours ago, with exhaustion pooling at my ankles, I arrived home from the PNWA Writing Conference. My mind is still swimming with information, inspiration, and a little apprehension (although not enough to pull me under). Just last week I posted the good, the bad, and the ugly of this anticipated event, yet happily I can report it was all positive and worthwhile. First of all, I had a […]

My Upcoming Writing Conference (the good, the bad, and the ugly)

My Upcoming Writing Conference (the good, the bad, and the ugly): The PNWA Writing Conference happens in less than a week in Seattle. This is a good news-bad news event for me. As eager as I am to soak in all the learning presented and meet other authors and writers, I still consider myself new in this writing world, and to be honest, I’m intimidated. Thankfully, my whole writing class […]
