Magical Writing – Poem

Magical Writing

By Diana Arco

Magical writing

Where such illogical

Fantasy places

Are hiding a secret truth,

Within its tale sentences

Time is frozen

Into this capsule of virtue.

There’s clarity and expectation

To reach the last chapter,

While you read

You enjoy a nice cup of tea

And delight yourself

With your favorite sweet.

Magical writing,

Dancing words

To your eyes

And music’s beating

Of your heart

Right into your being.

There’s no philosophical


Either a labyrinth

To get lost.

It’s such an amazing structure

That takes you

Where your reading belongs,

And time it’s not a waste

When you’re enjoying yourself

While you treasure

Inside its sentences

Such life’s experiences

Of light, life, love,

And freedom.

So In every turn

The magical writing

Takes you aboard.

“All The Light, Life, Love, And Freedom From The Heart And Soul.”

Pink Lemonade – Poem

Pink Lemonade –

By Diana Arco

Searching for some memories of the past

Navigating the thoughts of my own time

Embracing the understanding

Of my own energy and its doubts

I let the rain of my own love

To bath me from hair to toes.

So I drink to my health

Savoring a pink lemonade,

Ice cubes refreshing me plenty

Losing myself in its sweetness.

Then I nod my head gently

And I breath out my hopes.

This is me

Within and out from my own truth.

So I declare firm :

“I’m here, I’m there, I’am nowhere..

I belong, I’am free, I’am love…

I do, I did, I didn’t,  I do…

I listen, I speak, I shout, I’am mute…

I think, I wonder, I know, I’m ignorant…

I’am Myself…”

And the days don’t go by themselves.

The Writer In Us! Where to go?

How writers are

Greetings, everyone!

Happy monday and starting of the week!

I felt the need to come here to you and talk about ourselves, the “writers” that we are.
Some of us are accomplished and successful writers, or we are just starting the adventure, while others only write for themselves and their loved ones. There it is the writer in us, and we are in the need to express ourselves, to create a whole new world, to follow all the rules, to break them all, to create new rules, to follow our own consciouness in our master pieces.
We enjoy this freedom to sit ourselves in a confortable place or a noisy one, and there we are listening to music or the noise, drinking our favorite beverage, and getting in touch with our spark of inspiration. Our fingers fly holding the pen that writes on that notebook when we feel ourselves oldfashion. Our hands fly all over the keyboard of our laptops. We are just creating, giving form to that love letter with all our soul, or to that poem, or that chapter of your manuscript, or that article for your blog, or for that famous magazine, journal. It’s like breathing, eating, walking, running… it’s part of each one of us in our daily lives.
Every single day a master piece is born and it’s on its way into the light. I strongly believe each word created was meat to go out and reach where it must. How this happens? It is you, my dear writer, the one, the owner of your own writing’s destiny. I bet you have experienced that a weak writing is not going anywhere. I strongly believe that when you write with all your might, all your intentions, your affirmations, all that love and positive ways within yourself there is no way that you can go wrong. You must believe you are going to get there someday where you really wish to be, even when you’re not aware about it today, even when you are in doubts sometimes and have fears, you gotta stand up for yourself to find answers and continue your journey… to continue writing. You are the one who gives to yourself the green and / or the red light in your road when you must need it.

Remember, there is someone outside that needs to read you and your creations. They are waiting for you… my dear writer.


All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul.

The journey of my first manuscript. Sharing the experience!


Greetings, everyone!

Well, like my father told me some time ago. If you are afraid, why don’t you stay under the bed and live your life from there? and I went…”Oh, oh, oh!” “That’s rude, dad!”
Then he said, firm and kind: “When you really wish something in your life, you just go for it.”

Dad came up with the following words that really made an impact in my life: If you want to be an astronaut, what are you going to do? Of course, send a letter to the NASA. And what the NASA is going to answer to you? – if you get an answer in first place. You have 3 options in here… you could receive a “No” or “Thank you for your interest, maybe we’ll get in contact with you later.” or “Welcome! Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to participate in our project” My Dad uses the astronaut’s example because they are the ones who, literary speaking and technologically achieved, have been able to travel beyond the earth.

So, I received and understood this knowledge, and I said… “My astronaut is to be a writer! and I’m going for it!”
It took me some weeks to make up my mind and choose “my tale” from all those ideas I’ve been writing for years in pieces of paper and in my journals. It’s my first shout, my introduction letter, my #1, my unborn baby inside my belly… the doubt got inside my head, the fear to be judged too… I really got confused. But I took a deep breath, and I said to myself “No worries, I free myself from them, and I’m going to enjoy this process… my own writing process.” I chose what my own inspiration, love, and feelings asked me to. So, it took me months to write my first draft, then it took me some other time to edit it. I spend days and nights in my room and in my favorite restaurants, writing, creating, describing, placing and deleting words. Enjoying, excited, the process of making my dream come true. Then finally I had my manuscript ready “The Composer and The Flycatcher” my fantasy tale written in poetry prose. “It’s time to find a home to my tale – my first manuscript.” I said with hope, knowing how competitive it’s the field of the writing world.
What came next? I’ve experienced “rejections” from publishers and agents… Oh My! Should I go under the bed now? -I asked to myself. Of course not! Don’t you dare to quit now, you’re just starting! And then, finally, I was able to find my other half, my publisher.
I thought to say to my father “Dad, The NASA has accepted me and I’m going to sign the contract.” “I’m going to the moon!” lol, but no… Me and my family celebrated at home that night with wine, cheese, and bread.

Miss Quesinberry, you’re such an amazing lady who gave me the welcome into your publishing house. I’m so grateful with you for believing in my talent, in what I wrote… my first manuscript, my poetry, my fantasy tale. http://www.prlog.org/12144423-donnaink-publications-signs-author-diana-arco-and-her-title-the-composer-and-the-flycatcher.html My home!

So, the journey continues… I’m coming back later as I continue living my writer’s experience.


🙂 All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul. ❤

Your writing flavors – Experiencing your attitudes when you write.

1 WHITE CAT colored-cat-ice-cream

Greetings, everyone!

Yep, it’s such a cute picture the one with the kitty and that yummy sweet and cold ice… I feel myself mouthwatering now.. lol.
This gave me the idea to talk to you about us- Writers – and our writing attitude, which I’am taking the freedom to call it “Flavors”.

I wonder if you ever thought about this before. Writing it’s like food that we all writers taste when we write. It’s our attitude the one we are tasting -experiencing- when we are sharing our emotions through words in a love letter, or when we are narrating an important event in our lives, also when you write a fantasy tale, a novel, etc. Everything we write has its right moment to manifest itself from inside to take it outside of each one of us.

In my own experience, I always enjoy my sweet flavors. It’s when the inspiration arrives and I’m so happy that I write for hours and hours because I’am loving, enjoying, the piece I’am working on. It’s my sweet cotton candy, my vanilla ice cream, my cherry lollipop, my hot chocolate time.
But, what to do when my attitude is “Bitter”, “Sour”, or “Salty”? Sometimes I can even use these attitudes in my writings. I write fantasy poetry, I know exactly what I want. When I get the idea for a tale, I see it all in my mind, like a movie, and I write my synopsis, the biography of each one of my characters, and a list of possible chapters and its descriptions. It’s what I call “The Skeleton” of my tale.
So, if my attitude is bitter, I can jump right away to my villain and continue writing my piece. Directing this bitterness right into my character… but when sometimes I can’t do that, I just stop writing my piece and I open my personal journal. I ask myself “Why -in my ignorance – I’am letting the bitterness get into my heart?” “How this started?” “Who else is involved?” I write, I experience, and I let all that bitterness out…I find my answers in myself…It’s just me the one dealing with this moment. I also talk to my loved ones and friends (especially the ones involved in my present situation to get answers from them and writen them down too) Sometimes I listen to my favorite music, watch inspiring movies on tv, or videos in http://www.youtube.com/… it’s a treasure to search for me; reminders about all the blessings we have in life. I can go outside to walk…of course with paper and pen with me (no matter where I’am, what I’am doing…paper and pen are a must have) while I’am waiting for the inspiration to arrive again to continue enjoying my sweet flavors.

To be that “goose”!


Greetings, everyone!

When I found this picture on the internet I knew I had to share it with you here in my blog.
It’s so funny, but at the same time it gave me the freedom to think “I wish to be that “goose”! It seems he is the successful one, the soul of the party, the leader, and all the rest of the gooses are on their way to meet him! lol. He is the one who thought “outside the box” and he is enjoying his sucess. You can look at his big smile and how he is posing to the camera.
Let’s say this goose it’s that successful writer we all wish to be, ( yes, and I include myself since I’am a debut author about to get published late fall this year with my fantasy poetry prose tale “The Composer and The Flycatcher” http://www.prlog.org/12144423-donnaink-publications-signs-author-diana-arco-and-her-title-the-composer-and-the-flycatcher.html ) and all those gooses are his readers.
This goose is J.k Rowling ,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._K._Rowling, Dan Brown http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Brown, Stephen King http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_King, he represents all those famous bestseller authors that you enjoy to read, and now that you are writing, that you have decided this is what you wish to do with your life, that you are on your way to get published, that you experienced publishers’ manuscripts rejections – like they did- (if you haven’t experienced rejections yet – get ready – https://authordianaarco.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/my-poem-mr-rejection-about-manuscript-rejections-of-course/) Then you finally found a publisher, and you signed the contract, and you are working with the editors, the cover artists, and you are coopeating, working with all the publisher’s team… Meanwhile, you are meeting fellow writers with years of experience, also people who are starting to write, you are paying attention to what book lovers are reading, you are thinking also about to join writer’s organizations, and you have the support of family and friends thanks to the social media (Facebook, twitter, linkedIn, Pinterest, Glooge+…) and there you are sharing, giving, “Promoting” yourself as a writer and your title…your title and you as one. And I say “Whoa!!! It’s a whole and long adventure in here! There is too much to do and to be done!” But in my experience I’m so happy for doing this, I’m grateful, and I’am opened myself to what’s next, for all the surprises that are on my way and also the challenges, because in any life’s situation to get to the top it’s not a piece of cake, it’s hard work from all people involved, patience, and to be “sure” this is what you really wish to do because at the moment of doubts you’re building walls in your way that are blocking you to get yourself to be “That Goose.” Yep, this one that’s smiling and telling you “Look at me, I did it… now it’s your turn!”

“Believe” – Poem


Greetings, Everyone!
I’m back to you with a poem that I wrote about this amazing word “Believe”. I’m sharing my own experience in here. I’ve been able to enjoy such blessings in my life, and those didn’t arrived to me from “out of the blue”, neither by a “coincidence.” I chose to “believe” I deserve these gifts, blessings, and I sent away all my fears and doubts, my ignorance.

by Diana Arco

There is an explosion from the heart.
The choice of such powerful light,
It’s the one that is telling you
To believe anything is possible now.

It’s the inspiration that it’s alive
When the right time arrives,
Waking you up from that dream of ignorance.
Be love – be smart – believe in yourself.

Under the clear sky of your own treasures,
The trees of your dancing winds,
And the sun and the moon of your ideals…
believe, believe, and believe.

There is no room for doubts and fears,
Those walls are falling down from the existance
Of that reality of pain and misunderstandings.
Believe is picking up the broken pieces from the past.

The sparkling dots of awareness,
Going up and down, and everywhere.
Today the difference is dancing
To the rhythm believing song from the heart and soul.


*** So, what are you waiting for? Start to believe in yourself “now” ***

My Dear Journal – Thouths and Poem.

Writing journal

Hi, Everyone! 🙂

I’m here with you today with this need that I have to talk to you – with my poetry style, of course -about how important it is (at least it is for me) to have a journal close where I can write ideas, thoughts, quotes, even dreams. Also where if I see an article that I like from a magazine, newspaper, or if I get a written message from a relative or a friend, and a concert ticket… I just glue it right away on my journal’s pages to read them all over again.
I even have a journal where I write my all time favorite poems from my favorite writers.
I must say that I’am a journal collector and I haven’t used them all, but I know someday I’ll pick one and I’ll use it the best way I can… it’s just not writing on it, it’s enjoying the discovering of a new land, a new character, a new tale, now that I’am an author about to get published, I’am taking out all my journals and making choices for my next title.
And now, in a deep personal way, writing on a journal it’s having one on one communication with your own soul and heart…I’ve been able to find “practicaly myself” “what I really want in my life to manifest, to achieve” in the pages I write. Each journal it’s just an amazing adventure for me, not an itimidating white page that frustrates me and don’t let me be. Writing it’s one of my all time life’s pleasures.
I feel the need and the love to share with you that I write every single day to the man I love..it’s something that I really have the need to do because I’am also sending him all my love within my words. Even if I write the same words “I Love You” and “Thank You” over and over again…”trust me”…there are words that we always need to express and to listen to. It doesn’t matter how many times we write them, we are never “full” to keep eating them, savouring them, and always wanting more and more because those are not empty words, those are the life of the one who wrote them… at least is what I’ve been experiencing myself.

My Dear Journal.
By Diana Arco.

I saw you one day and I couldn’t help it,
I felt that sparkle need to take you home with me.
I saw your inviting cover and your temptimg white pages.
My soul’s inspiration would give a good use to your existence.

I took you home and I only made it to the kitchen.
I didn’t bothered to get a coffee or tea.
I found my pen and I started to write right away on you.
My name, my initials, and your arrival’s date first.

My hand was flying free on you.
I was enjoying the moment,
Me…such a passionate writer
That cannn’t live without expression.

The ink of the pen will always run out
but never the writer’s imagination.
The pencil will disappear
but never the writer’s love.

My dear journal.
You’re always waiting for me.
Alive, so full of my knowledge
and also with my ignorance.

Yes, it’s all mine…
It’s my right choice and my fault.
I’m an angel and a devil,
but I’am always at home.

Thank you for staying in touch!

🙂 “All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul.” ❤
