Baltimore Comic-Con Reconaissance

I went to my first convention on Sunday! I knew that fellow author and blogger MLS Weech was going to be there, so I wanted to take the opportunity to stop by his table.

Friday Write-Day: Sleep is for Sane People

I left work at 4:30 yesterday because I was just too tired to deal with anything. I almost couldn’t deal with the awful commute home, but I made it.

Misplaced Missive #201 – Lady Luck

Lady Luck, fickle and cruel,
Who will sleep with any fool,
But only for a short time.
Choosing lovers with divine randomness,
In her arms, there's bliss;
Fortune given with every kiss,
But not for long.
'Til the next is chosen,
And you're dismissed.

Lady Luck, you uncaring whore,
Who will you next bless,
With your attention and caress?
How can I earn more?
How can I earn less?
I'm always waiting for,
My turn to be selected, by fate.

So Lady Luck, please.
Leave me be.
I'd rather court
The hardworking sort.
One to inspire and motivate,
Not one to make me wait, and wait,
For something that may never come.
