Dancing the Flame

Dancing the FlameI suppose he is that all consuming passionate affair where dancing too close to the sun is the folly of the heart. Everyone should at least have one of those. He was not my great love. True love demands nothing, is worn so comfortably one only misses it when it is gone. Nor can I simply call this lust for there is more here than flesh and bone. This desire stokes the flames, searing the edges and burning memories into your brain. Such passion can lead one astray. Perhaps that is its magic as you dance a misstep, creating a new rhythm and spin off into the unknown.

All I know is without him my life would not have been the same and with him I glimpsed what could be.

  1. First off I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

    • Hello.
      Thanks for the comment. As to writing, the best advice I can offer is to simply write. Like anything, practice will hone your skill. Also some writers don’t worry about spelling/editing their work until the 2nd draft so they can focus just on getting the story. For clearing my mind, I used to play a game of solitaire before writing. It helped me. Good luck!

Thanks for reading. I'd love to know your thoughts.
