Must Write

She sits by the window
beneath thin blanket
feeling the wind barge in through the open window
watching the curtain flutter,
and the trees thrash their arms about
and wonders when she might get out
into nature and stir the clouds?!
Then she takes a breath
deep and rich
and turns upon papers clean.
With the wind’s chill waking her soul
she picks up her pen and scrolls
faster and messier
the images tumble through her mind
dialogues and characters changing
faces and voices morphing
and she laughs quietly
that a little bit of nature has inspired
the walls to turn to smoke
and she writes, the tale she had struggled with
and now and again
she glances outside
to the promise of sunshine
upon writing ‘The End’ for once
and thus feels tempted to try
and win that freedom to rejoice.
So she writes with the beckoning wind in her hair
and the land outside.
Soon – but for now, must write.

I'm a writer of stories I'd love to read. I dream of being a best-selling author one day, but don't we all? I'd also love to work as a scriptwriter in Hollywood. Dreams that seem impossible really, but I'm gutsy/dumb enough to try. l love all things paper and pen. Believe me, I collect them. I write novels, poems and scripts. I paint. I have two Kindle novels, In Strange Company, and Charming Mr. Stewart on Follow me and my progress on my blog,, on Twitter @evacharya, Facebook 'Author/Filmmaker- Eva Acharya', and sign up for my email.

    KonfusiusKrew say single minded pursuit of goals excellent as long as one has many many life experiences to draw from when writing!


      1. KonfusiusKrew say will put carrot away if you do not spend enough time at play!

        I play a jolly good game of cricket, mate! KonfusiusKrew at the bat!
