morning pages

I’m up early & writing,
laying down words
like laying fresh bricks:
one word in front of the other, rapid-firing on my keyboard

I’m up early & writing,
creating with the right side of my brain,
writing with my left hand
splaying out the pages on my desk,
getting ink smudges on my wrist

I’m writing to give my characters life,
to solidify their world swirling around in my mind:
a paper apple becomes a juicy, fresh-off-the-tree-limb Granny Smith

I’m up early & writing,
because if I get the words down—
flowing from my head to my wrist,
a conduit like electricity through my synapses—
I will feel fully alive

Hello there! I'm Meghan. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Although I'm almost 30, I haven't lost my sense of child-like wonder for the world around me. I've been making up stories my whole life: My imaginative play with toys as a child has grown up with me, maturing into my imaginative wordplay with fantasy and sci-fi novels, as well as free-verse poetry. I thrive on creating something with my hands and with my mind, using my pen or my keyboard.

When I'm not working, I'm reading, writing, or knitting, I'm sleeping. I also enjoy watching Netflix, occasionally playing open-world video games, or hanging out with my family, my two golden girl retrievers Bentley and Charlie, my friends, or my boyfriend Rory.

Happy blogging!
