THE WRITER

To a writer
the empty page
says
fill me up
it's lonely here
let's
build a world
from words and
feelings
and with wings
that fly with
letters.

Poem: About Rights

Voices claim

rights to justice

From streets to stages

they proclaim sources 

of wrongs.

 

Do you

 teach your kin

with words or actions

that's their right

to kill?

 

Then there's

 no safety for

their siblings or parents

For who wins

rights, wrongs?

 

Clean streets 

from immigrants scum

But who's the scum?

You say that's 

the bad. 

 

In cheer 

and pomp citizens 

judge right from wrong

But yours can't 

 be deployed.

 

Does God

 support those who 

in the name of 

country kill to

right wrongs?

Poem: Fear

Fear


In fear-loaded times

Will wearing a mask

That blends with all 

Does not claim sides

Speaks of nothing

Stands for none 

Keep one safe 

To walk into crowds

Or behind closed doors

Doing nothing 

Offending no one

When a voice, fist, bomb

In a corner, school, or mall

Attacks

A site for creative expression: About Marta C Weeks

Marta C. Weeks has always loved writing and research. Her four-book series, On wings Of Immortals aka Elementals, available this year, starts at the onset of humanity and is loosely based on history and myths. 

After a 30+ year career as a Research Analyst and Counselor, she freelanced for CBS-Sacramento and Examiner.com. Is also the author of The Sylph's Tale, a screenplay that received awards, and a short story available on Amazon and Draft2Digital.com   


In childhood, debilitated by polio, Marta read books she found in the attic of her grandparent's store. In high school, she won public speaking awards and, before marriage, was a dancer and fashion model. While a stay-at-home mom, she taught dancing and, in college, hosted a local TV show.

 

Note: The series contains erotic romance and is only recommended for adults.

Paranormal shifter or fantasy?

I wonder if my series On Wings Of Immortals should be a paranormal shifter series instead of fantasy since some of my characters change from eternal beings to humans.

Doing final review

Hi, Ayekah and Haya fans!

I am looking for serious readers to give me honest feedback in exchange for a free pre-publication book!

Those who followed the story know that AYEKAH and HAYA are the main characters of the series ON THE WINGS OF IMMORTALS. I have completed book one, Ayekah The Damned, and book two, Virgins.

Please contact me at mdcmdaw@gmail.com if you want to be considered for the selected group of readers that agree to give me feedback.

ON THE NEWS TODAY

Far away from us

People leave dead loved ones

Spouses and homes

Carry children

And the little they can

From amid the rubble 

Of what once was plenty

To escape death

In the hope of safety

In search of life

In smiles and arms 

Of those who welcome them.

How to manage and or introduce settings.

Settings for a story are as important as the characters. Therefore, an author must learn all about where the story takes place.

Here is an excellent article about settings:
