A Writer's Path
by Teagan Berry
There are countless social media sites out on the internet, each of them offering us different means to share our thoughts and life with other people. For authors, social media can help us out in many different ways. Book promotion, connecting with fans, networking with other authors… and that’s just to name a few.
A little while ago I was introduced to a site called Pinterest by a fellow author and let me tell you, I will be forever grateful to her for it. In this post, along with another one I shall be putting up in a couple days, I hope to give you a few reasons why I believe Pinterest is so useful for authors. Right now, I’m going to focus on the private side of Pinterest, and what it can do for you and your specific writing.

all that remains
when the flame of love burns low
are embers and ash
Terror cut short the French elite
Look over yonder
for there lies your destiny
follow the rainbow
The spawn of Darkness
eager to please their Master
arose from the Deep
as the stars emerge
the algae blooms and rises
from depths of darkness
I think you need your ears syringed dear, I said banana sandwich not sausage
God is demanding entry to my life, one day I will admit him.
