Dana Rice's Writing Collection

Yes, this is finally some of my original work on my website. :-} I hope you enjoy it. Be forewarned, most of it came unconsciously out of my morning pages exercise while I was doing the creativity course based on the book The Artist's Way. If you're unfamiliar with the course, a portion of it is getting up in the morning and doing a "scandisk" function on your brain, writing three pages of whatever comes out, to clear your brain for creativity. So, many of these works came out in serial snippets over several weeks of gook in a notebook. I didn't know some of them existed until the exercise in the course told me to go read the gook. I was surprised to find them. Really. ::chuckle:: I'm not a morning person. I guess that's why the course says to go back and read the gook, eh? Anyway, I enjoyed these particular ones, and they were the best-formed. I'm working on some more. The Laden Shoes and Wings piece has three more sections. I'm wading through the gook to piece them together. :-} Thanks for reading, and thanks to those of you who've seen me perform the poems and songs and wanted this site to happen. :-} You rock. I appreciate you very much. Peace, dear ones.
