Hello, I am Damien, the head blogger of our family blog The Shade of Writing. We are a home-school family of writers that love to travel. We write on various topics such as education, philosophy, poetry and history. We also have a Twitter, an Instagram and a YouTube.
I write poetry and share drafts of my novel when I am not in classes at the local university. My kids post their writing assignments from their books and papers on topics that interest them. My spouse travels for his job and most of our travel and food reviews are from him. We all are open to questions so ask away.
Her face is almond, her eyes are emerald. She is all I dream all I keep wishing for, I try to think of her story, our story but I am in a rut. I need 80,000 words according to the publishers for scifi and fantasy novels. I only have aprox 40,000. YIKES.
Spiraling down the writers abyss
wondering if it’s my life I miss
hoping one day to be realized
I want to dazzel others eyes
with my talent, with my gifts
but here I find my spirit doesn’t lift
and down down down I go
to where, only a writer knows
