Things have been quiet in this blog for too long. The unlit space stretches beyond my imagination, and a chill wind rattles the empty pages like dead leaves. I poke around a bit, a blind search for my muse. “Hey! Wakey-wakey! We’ve got a blog to write,” I called into the void. My voice echoes, but I know he’s there. […]

ON TARGET

by D. D. Falvo on May 23, 2013 | @ddfalvo

Inspired by Setting Sights . . . A weekly blog hop where writers share their inspirations. Please join us! One of the first things I remember is my mom telling me to look where I’m going. I won’t say I learned that lesson quickly, and the varying results of my resistance have caused no small […]
