via Daily Prompt: Horizon
The first thing that came to mind when I read this prompt was the song “I Can See Clearly Now” by Johnny Nash. Here is the first stanza:
“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
If you don’t know the song, go listen to it here.
It’s a beautiful song that makes me think of brighter days and brighter horizons. Since I’ve started this Daily Prompt journey, I’ve written more than I have in years. I know most of it is not what I used to write (fiction verses non-fiction) but I’ll take it in the hopes that in between the non-fiction ramblings, stories and poems will emerge more and more.
Here’s to new days, new horizons and new stories. Go listen to the song. It might make your day.
I hate to admit it, but my depression is back, which means that though it is not as bad as it has been, it is there and affecting my desire to be creative. I have not written anything in my new book for a while, and have had little desire to post anything new to this site.
But, that happens. I will post a poem as well tonight, but it has been difficult to keep up. Sometimes, I just have to be silent. I thank those of you who know me to keep your jokes/comments to yourself on that one. (smirk)
Also, by March 31st (deadline clock will be added to this site soon) I would like to have my first novel published through Amazon. I want to concentrate my efforts there, and get that finished. I will be rereading the novel, entitled “The Elven Prince”, writing the synopsis (which I hate doing) and posting said synopsis here. Once that synopsis is done, I’ll probably have one or two people read the novel over to get opinions.
It will be people I know reviewing the novel, but once I post the synopsis, if you think it sounds readable, or not, let me know! I really love hearing stuff like that, even if it’s bad.
At any rate, thanks for reading and as always, go forth and create!
