finding the fool

I have been somewhat lost as of late, whimsy has left the comforting frontal lobes of my mind and tucked itself away to recesses unknown. It pops out every once in a while, allowing me to know that my fool is still lurking.

On the writing front, stories have been sprinkling their sparkles over my brain when I sleep -- there is a lot of dancing and I just happened to write two poems last week (thanks for the faith, Aaron, Bea and Tony).

On the short story front, I still have some in the editing pool, some that have been waiting, patiently for me to do something with them. It might be time to delve back in with a scalpel and see how long it would take for the blood to stain my elbows.

And then, I will search for a home for all of them.

But, speaking of finding the fool, while I won't be looking for it, I will certainly keep my arms open for its return.

YAY! Nice to hear about the poems.

You'll come along, Kara--all in good time.

The fool? I'm right here! :-)

Your fingertips will dance, I know it.

Get those subs out. I always feel better knowing my stories are working for me.

Thanks Tony! But if you have my fool, I'd like it back:P

Angel, I know you posted here, but with the Blogger problems the other day I lost em. I'll pop over to your blog soon to see what's the who with the subtastic extravaganza..

Bea, same goes for Angel, I saw your comments and then Blogger got dumb and I lost them. Thanks for reading my post!! Hope you're doing well!
