A new chapbook of poetry, short fiction, and essays.
My writing process is tempestuous at best. Ideas for novels and song lyrics have been born on bar napkins and in notebooks, on a lazy Sunday afternoon and on the crushing Monday morning commute. Poetry has been composed under the mesmerizing heat of the Arizona sun and in the depths of a sullen Minnesota midwinter night.
Each time, the heady buzz of inspiration mingles with the electric rush of capturing a moment, putting words to a vision before it escapes. Possibilities are boundless, “wordsparks” are infinite. Some fizzle out before they can ignite to flame. But the point isn’t necessarily to see the ideas go anywhere. The point isn’t that they’re even any good. The point is that they were written. This is a collection of the sparks that caught.
