It is wonderful how the things that we love tend to influence our art, even when they're not directly linked to it. I was talking to an old friend recently who studied classics with me at university. She is now a fashion designer but said that her work constantly brings her back to the ancient stories, architecture and aesthetics of the Greeks and Romans. So much of what she creates is influenced by her passion for classical civilisations.
Talking to her I realised I'm the same, even when I have no intention of writing about myth I found it has woven itself through the text.
Other loves of mine like fairy tales, Pre-Raphaelite art, coffee, violins and countries I've called home all are part of the 'compost' (thanks @rosiesmithltd for the metaphor) that make up what I write.
I don't pretend to be an expert in any of these things but they are always there, pushing up new shoots.
What are the things on your compost heap? I'd love to hear the passions that appear in your creative work.
I finished the first draft of a new short story!!! It took about eight weeks and has been difficult, but I'm excited. The story is called "Door in the Air" and it concerns a female Marine veteran and amputee struggling to adjust to life in the states after experiencing devastating losses in combat. There's not even that much data or info out there about what these women are going through, and the subject fascinates me. I probably mangled it but it felt like a noble attempt and I'm proud of the effort....probably wont feel that way after I start to edit it though.....ha!!!! #shortstories#writinglife#femalevets

I have written millions of words by now,
but you know, i can't find one proper word to describe her completely.
Maybe she is indefinable.
Those fancy words are not enough to define her.
They are not enough
to define how fiercely she loves,
how contagious her weirdness is,
and how she blows up my demons through her humour everytime I lost my way, along with my mind.
Yes,words are not enough.
You need to let her in to know what I am talking about,
once she's in - you need to feel her,
and damn she feels like nirvana!
Like that sweet fragrance of mud that surrounds you during rain,
like all the great things in the world,
she has essence of all of them.
and she likes to spread it all to me. .
She's the romance that you'll find mixed in the air of Paris,
She's the tsunami raging over the ocean of my heart,
She is poetry, I want to listen till I die.
She is poetry that melts in my ear and reaches my heart.
Just stay there.
