Looking for Volunteers

I am looking for people who are interested in keeping this site vibrant and lively even when my chronic illness is kicking my butt.

I’m looking to recruit volunteers who would be willing to commit to helping with the site by taking the responsibility for the posts for one day of the week. These posts can be personal writings, prompts, writing exercises, links to useful resources, writing discussion or anything else related to the topic of writing.

If you are interested in helping out, let me know in the comments of this post or send me a private message and I will contact you directly.

WNB Theme 2


Look back at your WNB page from last week. Consider what kinds of things you have collected in association with the theme. Write out a list of things that are in the pictures, the words that show up and the things that are happening in the clips that you have chosen. What kinds of themes does this list suggest to you?

I feel nothing but the empty;
surging, huge inside me,
filling all my spaces
and silencing all my songs.
This world always told me
I can never belong.
Always reaching to reshape me,
pressing me against the mold,
forcing out all the colors.
I look at the mirrored grey
and I imagine the rainbow
and all the ways I was painted
before you had your way.
Looking out this little window
upon the expansive grey,
I wonder: who stole your light
and made you believe in shadows?
All the thieving generations,
blindly, grabbing at what is gone,
hurting all their babies,
snuffing out the little lights,
too painful to look upon.
This angry, raging circle,
cutting as it spins.
But why not
turn the lights back on?
