I've written bits and pieces-- nothing, really. Early this month I addressed how being sick made it difficult to write anything. It remains. A mere handful of new, rough works are all I have to show for months of existence. Well, besides this blog and Twitter posts.
However, I ran across a fun contest recently from http://www.everywritersresource.com on haiku with a Halloween theme. Now, anyone who knows me at all knows Halloween is my beyond-favorite holiday. The fact that it involves poetry is just a huge bonus. I find myself with eight pieces, currently, with ideas for more. My muse is in love.
The contest has no monetary prize but it doesn't matter. I feverishly scribble, even in the middle of the night like I used to. It's so nice that I have this part of me back, even if I'm still not well.
I don't think I'm going to enter any of my poems. If not, I won't regret it because, for now, the fire is back and I'm just glad... to feel the burn again.
