Move Over Shakespeare by Billy J. Barnum

Have you seen The Greatest Showman? Well, Billy Barnum is a direct descendant of Phineas Taylor Barnum, and he wrote a poetry book!  Move Over Shakespeare was a delight to read. The poems were raw, honest, uplifting, and thought-provoking. “One by One” inspired me to get writing. “My Hair” had me laugh out loud. “Sycamore …

The Book That Changed My Life

I started writing novels in third grade. My first story was about two twenty-somethings from a small Montana town who went to New York City in search of love. I wrote only a few chapters. A year later, I started writing my next story, Haunted House on Halloween Street. Like the first story, I never …

Writing Community Support

Most people in my life think I love writing. Ha! I don’t love writing; I love having written, though. Writing is hard. It’s difficult to get in the writing zone and to stay in the zone. There are too many distractions! I procrastinate and I’ll do just about anything to avoid writing. There’s a dirty …

Have you seen The Duff movie? If so, what did you think? I only recently found out the movie is based on a novel by the same name. I loved the movie, so why not read the book? To be honest, I was a little hesitant to read it; I thought the movie would’ve ruined …

A Writer’s Questionnaire

Chilly weather, football, leaves falling, pumpkins—Yes, fall is here! *Sigh* I don’t know about you, but I’m glad the hot weather is gone. A couple months ago I got a library card! You would think that I, a major bookworm, would already have had a library card, but I did not. Now I have access …

2019: A New Chapter

Goodbye 2018 and hello 2019! I remember sitting in this exact spot a year ago and writing about the year ahead. I said this and that would happen in 2018, and you know what? I was right. For the most part, the year went how I predicted it would go. The only thing I was …

Dear Lucky

Dear Lucky, I never would have thought a month after writing a letter to Cappie I would have to write a letter to you. I meant to write sooner, but I needed time. I probably shouldn’t be writing this when I’m emotional. There will likely be a lot of errors, but I don’t care. I …
