Hi All!!

    I don't know if sewing is a lost art, but I don't know too many people who sew. I learned how to sew in junior high.  At first we made a sewn by hand stuffed animal.  I made a panda out of 8 circles of various sizes.  It had 2 large circles for the head and body, along with 6 small circles for the ears and paws.  It took me no time at all because it was fun and also because I was very focused....

A Break in Her Day: An Ode to Rae
                                        by Darcey Anne

She swings on a swing
At a local pretty park
Wearing her new outfit
A nice skirt and shirt
Handmade with love
No cares in the world
She is as happy as a lark
Without any meadow.

She climbs up a little ladder
To slide down a small slide
Her hair blows in the breeze
As she lands at the bottom
The trees bend and sway
As the...

Here is my latest poem. This is in dedication to my sister Jenny.  This was started a few weeks ago before the rain started coming to California.

Ode to Jenny
by Darcey Anne

California dreaming there is no rain in sight
The ground is very dry, the flowers are too
Tell us whatever are we supposed to do
To make the clouds with water droplets

Hi everyone!!  Happy New Year!!

Santa brought me a gift in the way of a blank book.  The idea is to use the words given along with the theme to create a one shot short story.  A one shot short story is a story done in one page. I wrote a couple of fanfic short stories that way.  I've not used the book yet, but I plan on seeing what I can do.  Once I'm able to write one, I can post...

Hi All,

I have been involved in a writing challenge for the past month.  It is to write a novel of 50,000 words or more during the month of November.  I have 38,000 at the moment and 2 days to do 12,000 words.  I have been using my dragon dictator program to do this for the most part.  I have included some of my poetry and a short story in the novel as well.
