New Online Class

On StoryWrite.com, I’ve finished the Editing and Proofreading class and now I’m taking the Poetic Prose (How to Make Your Narratives Sing) class. We’re learning to understand poetic prose and how to write better narratives. It’s very interesting. There’s a lot of analyzing and critical thinking involved. I’ll admit that it’s a challenging class, but I like it. I’m learning about different writing styles and structures.

Happy Birthday Steven!


Looking in the sky,
I smile and remember;
I laugh and recall.
Not too long ago,
you were here,
Telling me jokes,
Being on my side,
when no one was there.
You were my friend;
the piece of my heart,
my everything.
Now, you’re watching over me,
Now, you’re the angel dancing upon the stars;
the angel drinking from the Milky Way.
Even though you flew away,
My love for you still lives on;
your memory will always be here to stay.

I wrote this poem called "Angel Upon the Stars" especially for my friend Steven Zaitz, who passed away 3 years ago. Today is his birthday. Every year since his passing, I post this poem on my blog to remember my awesome friend. Happy birthday Stevie Wevie! I love you and always will.
