small stones

Here are some small stones I have recently written (somewhat in the style of Fiona Robyn):

clear blue eyes
engaged in a smile
sparkling at river’s edge

tiny forms,
except for
barely discernible
chest heaves
breathe, little ones,

moment captured in time:
four smiles surround
one smile – with no hair above it
she was lovely bald

crescendo rising, rising
closed eyes and a slight smile
appreciation at its finest

a question mark
was most decidedly
out of her head
questionable photography skills

Television Treatments

Well, here is a new one! I have been asked to help develop and write a treatment for an idea for a television show. This is something I have never done. I am doing some research on the process and on what should be included in a treatment (title, logline, synopsis). Have you ever written a treatment? Do you know the process? Do you know anything about registering with the WGA? Any information from my loyal readers would be greatly appreciated!

New Projects

Well, after a bit of a "maternity leave", I'm back on the hunt for new freelance projects. I'm reworking my writing resume a bit and submitting on new fronts. Internet magazines seem to be the up and coming craze. It will be interesting to see the direction that they take. Here are some that I have come across recently:

First and Last Sentence Magazine

and of course the great The Adirondack Review
