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

Misinterpretation,

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.”

Those Voices – Poem

Those Voices

By Diana Arco

I’ve shared farewell tears

For those amazing voices

No longer alive.

But I listen to their music,

I read their poetry,

I read their fantasy books,

Their classic horror novels,

And among other adventures.

So it’s their legacy

Always present

The one I enjoy,

And others,

Who are younger,

Take the chance

To discover

And learn from.

So within my own world,

I take the freedom to wish

For one day to arrive

When I’ll join

Those voices myself.

Me, another poet

From a long list of authors,

With humble knowledge

Of love

It’s waiting in line

For her turn.

But this is just a wish,

For my voice is strong today

And enjoying the list

Of authors

Working their way through

This vast literary land.

Words “The Plea” – Poem

Words “The Plea”
By Diana Arco

And here is the amazement,
Also the concern:
Words from the poet,
The author, the writer…
All those places
Where everyone
And everything
To a destiny arrives.

So all those moments of joy,
Where we celebrate love
In poetry,
Lyrics, and songs.
So all the feelings
From the hearts and souls
Finds a place
To call home.

Then for such precious moments
We have peace
With the ones we love,
And we respect each other
Sharing ourselves
In a blessed conjunction…
In our embrace
We rest an awaken smile.

But what about that writer
That only spread lies?
Oh, ignorant intersection,
Prisoner of darken roads.
You dare to twist words
To your own convenience,
And like an ocean of misery,
You take the ones who heard.

Manipulative of texts
Where rivers of sadness flow,
And thunders created
By human hands
Explode in chaos
Contaminating the gifts
That were trusted to us
From the beginning of all times.

Then this plea:
Poet, writer, author:
Take action
And share love
No violence.
Share knowledge
No ignorance.
We all write alfter all…

My Winter’s Poem About Writing

white owl and quill

Just a few days before Christmas,
I let my heart and soul
To wonder once more.
I know I do this very often.
oh, blessed me.
I can give myself this joy.

I feel it and I write it down;
I may use it some day,
Or maybe not.
Who knows, but me,
While I’am making a dream come true
With every word that comes out from my own source.

I do not seek perfection
When that comes naturally.
Every single thought that arise from the soul,
And with a strong will,
Cannot ask for more
When it is already what it should be.

So, I’am here now,
Writing this message to you.
Don’t fear your words,
Even those that don’t need to be spoken,
While life opens its signs
For your own knowledge.

Sincerely,
Diana.

Hush… #amwriting

Greetings Everyone! 🙂

I’m just here to share a picture that my mom found on the internet and she sent it to me.
This is how I look when I’am seated on the floor of my room to write…. lol.
Somehow I just can’t stay still when I write and, yes, sometimes I end up myself on the floor.

Well, as you can see… I’am very concentrated!

Cat with a keyboard

Have an amazing week and happy writing!

Sincerely,
Me.

Books Are Magic

Flying Books

Greetings everyone!

Today I feel the need to share with you why “books are magic”… So I found such amazing quotes.

Enjoy!

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
― Jorge Luis Borges

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
― Oscar Wilde

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
― Madeleine L’Engle

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
― Stephen King, On Writing

“I cannot live without books.”
― Thomas Jefferson

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
― Augustine of Hippo

“Books should go where they will be most appreciated, and not sit unread, gathering dust on a forgotten shelf, don’t you agree?”
― Christopher Paolini

“My Best Friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.”
― Abraham Lincoln

“If you take a book with you on a journey,” Mo had said when he put the first one in her box, “an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it… yes, books are like flypaper—memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.”
― Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

“I don’t believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”
― J.K. Rowling

“Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book.”
― Stéphane Mallarmé

“Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“Sleep is good, he said, And books are better.”
― George R.R. Martin

“He was the crazy one who had painted himself black and defeated the world.

She was the book thief without the words.

Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain.”
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.”
― Garrison Keillor

Open a Book

Sincerely,
Diana.

A Big Hug To All My Fellow Bloggers

BlogMouse

Greetings Everyone!

I just can’t help it and I need to let this out.

I’am sending right now “A Big Hug To All My Fellow Bloggers” for all the writing, reading, inspiration, dedication, and all those etc times where thanks to the internet our blogs bring us together to share, communicate, and express ourselves.

Here some quotes.

A blog is merely a tool that lets you do anything from change the world to share your shopping list.
Unknown

Blogging is a great way to show your talents and interests to prospective employers, while adding an edge to your resume. If you blog consistently it shows your dedication, passions and creativity – all of which are key attributes employers look for in job candidates.
Lauren Conrad

I’ve never done a film before where every single person in the audience knows the ending. I mean suspense, twists are almost impossible these days. People are blogging your endings from their cinema seats.
Danny Boyle

I think of us as journalists; the medium we work in is blogging.
Joshua Micah Marshall

I started blogging in 2006 when I had sold my first novel but it had not yet been published, in those anxious months in between while I learned the whole process.
Laini Taylor

Blogs, social networks, newspapers, any other form of publication – all have social aspects to them. It is a spectrum really, with social networks at one extreme and a 19th century novel at the other. But there’s room for all types of social publishing platforms.
Richard MacManus

Yes, blogging is entertainment. It is performance. Each blog post a show, sometimes an opera, sometimes a 30 second commercial. Like a show, it may start with a bang, lead you along from song to song, have a great climatic moment, then leave the audience wanting more.
Lorelle Van Fossen

As I have repeatedly written in one form or other, blogging is not about writing posts. Heck, that’s the least of your challenges. No, blogging is about cultivating a mutually beneficial relationships with an ever-growing online readership, and that’s hard work.
Alister Cameron

Blogging is good for your career. A well-executed blog sets you apart as an expert in your field. Penelope Trunk

I Love Blogging

Sincerely,
Diana.

PS Please, don’t forget about this…

You’re amazing!
Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

Things that Writers Should Do And Never Do About Writing – Links

writing key words

Greetings, everyone!

I’am a new writer and I’am about to get published this year for first time with my poetry prose fantasy 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 http://www.donnaink.org/#!author-diana-arco/zoom/csi9/image197h
I have a long road to write… I mean to walk, but I woke up this morning with the need to talk to you about “Things that writers should do and should never do” About writing, in general. So, I went into my files and I’m taking the freedom to provide you with the links of the best web pages that I’ve been able to find and that I keep visiting.
My Note: This doesn’t mean you gotta follow all these as the way they are, since life taught me that experience, making mistakes, and have sucess are part of each one of us, but I also found out that it’s good to know things in advance that if you feel them right you could take them to consideration.

So, let’s start with:

“Things That A Writer Should Never Do”

From Writers Digest
http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/there-are-no-rules/15-things-a-writer-should-never-do
Based on interviews with authors over the years, conferences, editing dozens of issues of Writer’s Digest, and my own occasional literary forays and flails, here are some points of consensus and observations: 15 of them, things anyone who lives by the pen (or seeks to) might consider. It is, like most things in the writing world, a list in progress—and if you’ve got your own Dos or Don’ts to add…

“Things That A Writer Should Do And / Or Needs to Know”

From WikiHow
http://www.wikihow.com/Become-a-Writer
The translation of human experience into an artful literary presentation is the art of writing. Writing is a careful craft that follows certain literary techniques and maintains field standards. Most fields in creative writing (from academia and publishing, to grant and technical writing), require a higher degree, including at least a Bachelor’s degree, and, often, an MFA in creative writing or an MA in literature, journalism, or a related field.
My Note: I enjoy reading articles from “WikiHow”… this is an amazing website to explore.

From the New York Times Blog
http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/22/should-we-write-what-we-know/?_r=0
My Note: A very interesting article that to my consideration it’s worth reading.
Should we write what we know? this is a very interesting question… and tricky too.

From Firstwriter.com
http://www.firstwriter.com/writing_tips/
My Comment: The article says “For the aspiring writer” but I find this article very usable for coming back and read it all the times you need, even when you’ve been published.
Firstwriter.com it’s one of my favorites web pages.

Happy Writing, Everyone!

Sincerely,
Diana.
