A brothel’s ceiling fan


As my memory rests

I never forget why I loved

They told me innocence will never last

I am 40 something, needing to be hugged

Once drenched in pain

Choked back in childhood

When I would dip my right hand

In that gray flour and its gravity

Love is so rare

A handful of ash holds

The entire worlds weight

I belong a long way from here

Will you plunge through my home door

Announce by dance you are here

Get me tied in a love knot, bitten free

Let’s still get stoned

Show me your veined hands

We’ll play and slumber in my life boat

Only to wake, feeling your breath

On my neck. Don’t tell me I am beautiful, show me

Let me learn from your animistic release

Depend on this breeze, as we do our chemicals

To cease my fear your embrace that seeks to still me

Truth is I need to be inspired and dream of you

It’s true there must be an angel smiling on her face

When she thought up ways to put one on mine

Only in tears though do I speak in the dark

Keep your predatory clench in your powerful jaw

It hurts to eat, so you surrender my needs

Inspiring me, releasing me, strengthening me

Now gathering up moms clothes for the poor

A litter of souls, I love as I was protected

Dreadlocks or crew cuts, i spend with my life

Pleasing up my men, only one broke

Blown open, a girl again for the first time

I listened to the earths heartbeat, finally

I am inspired, everyone I miss left hurt

Some have claimed my heart as theirs

When my last love came, he slid a palm

Across my eyes and lent me his mouth

Laid his head in the middle of me

Bent me, and my face rests on the

Meadow of his chest, again to listen

To the earths heartbeat

I see many windows vacant

No one keeps the brothel‘s ceiling fan

Or the infants mouth sewn shut

Suppose none of us stay in one place long

Last night my dream was so deep

My bed came UNroped from it’s actions

My father in the doorway, dead

Just home from the graveyard shift

Inspired as I possess that brothel’s ceiling fan

It has seen all that I do

It is silent and wicked

I find comport as it has seen worse

It’s blue

My brothel’s ceiling fan

My favorite toy and rhythm

Count its turns, as it drills a new hole

Tragic

Tricks of magic

Mix it

Or magic in tricks

Depending on the gift of its breeze

While doing chemicals

Expired

Piles of condoms

Blue.

My magic brothel fan.


eBook Authors Anonymous, kinda


I would like to venture off here and suggest an Authors eLetter.  This newsletter would only be or could only be created by pooling our resources in a professional, attractive and informative way.  I see it mailed out on every Tuesday  first thing in the morning.

Here’s how it could work; First we are not spamming rather emailing a defined list of potential readers by featuring a cover to our eBook and a blurb with where they can find it.  I believe the price is also important.  The recipients are those readers emails you supply me [never to be shared] and one mailing on Tuesdays would go out.

NOT WITHOUT AUTHORS FIRST!

I am working on the graphics and it’s header would be eBooks weekly eLetter.  Clearly this has to be tasteful and I would gather your information by email.  The eLetter would also be posted here-which we could use as a trial basis for our first run.  If there was to be any feedback via email, I would ensure you would receive it.  I think it could only build to a great informative means of kindly promoting and growth of a good database.

Also featuring a different author on cover each week.

If you think this is way to overdone or to intrusive please let me know, I’m posting today for your opinions and can also be contacted directly at www.kimberlyswritings@gmail.com

 

Thanks, looking forward to your feedback.

How to become a writer


Kid Rock – Roll On (Full Version) (Video)

How to become a writer has one critical step in doing so.  How to remain a writer has certain criteria at least that I must live by, to sustain being a writer.

http://hubpages.com/embed/video.php?vid=553&w=640

Firstly I was taught this and it changed my life.  Just as I loved writing my whole life I easily labelled myself as a broadcast producer for Advertising given my full time career.  Not that I didn’t love it just inside I dreamt of being a writer.  Another producer was concerned and kind enough to ask me what is on my mind.  I expressed my wish to be a writer.

She told me to repeat after me “I Kmberly Gray am a writer”  Three times.  She paused and asked me if I believed it.  I responded ‘absolutely’  Guess what she said, “your a writer, now take pride in your dream and never let anyone tell you otherwise.”  I asked her what to do next, feeling vulnerable and she simply said “that’s the beauty of being a writer.  What happens next is up to you.”

So there I was supposedly a writer, and as you know looking into a black hole wondering your worth the experience or good enough to share it.  Regardless, I was a writer.

I quickly and fearlessly learned how to sustain a writers career; accept being broke, cherish the writing community that is so supportive and apparently every moment possible, write,  YAHOO!


I have no job, and keep odd hours


Well, it’s just occurred to me now after all these years I really do not have a job and have kept odd hours just as long.  Like most writers I work alone and at night (almost 4am now)

I was told successful writers, write and that in order to sell books, I need to write them.  I chuckle at the simplest of things that are important and I loose sight off in my frenzy rush to accomplish little.  I am glad I write for me and not money but the exposure I am spending each opportunity to increase.

My longwinded point, rather request is to ask you in your opinion could you please help me with something. 

I am certainly not asking you to find my novels audience, and it has been weeks of posting and I am absolutely sure I have not hit it yet.  My question is do you have any advice or suggestions as to how I can tighten down my target to a specific 1 or 2 groups?

Oh Boy!  :0)

 

Thank you

Kimberly
