Thank you everyone for being such an amazing support. This book means so much to me. It's straight from my heart and I couldn't have done it without you so thank you. The link is in my bio if you would like to purchase your copy. ❤️❤️❤️❤️@ccwrites #cchurchill#ccwrites#notawinston#booklover
Today begins a 3-week trial run with my dream company to see if I have what it takes to be a transcontinental, overland tour leader in Africa!
I've packed my life into two bags and will board a one-way flight to Nairobi to chase my dream of traveling full-time with a heart full of hope and zero guarantees. It's time to see just how far my curiosity and courage will take me. ✨✨
Admittedly, I was kind of a weird kid. One of my favorite past times growing up was going to Claire's and picking out fake glasses. Yes, fake glasses.
Ironically, now I can't see without mine 👓. Resting my eyes this weekend and going off screen. Well, TV doesn't count does it? If so, I'm screwed.
We are thrilled to welcome Elizabeth Flanagan as our newest 3GT resident playwright! 😃🎭✏️ Elizabeth Flanagan is honored to be writing for ReproRights! for the second time, the first being in 2015.

I don't know if this is the same for any of my fellow writer friends on here?
Anyway, I've been struggling to write big time - been in a fuzzy head space that I'm slowly clawing my way out of.
I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend wherever you are. Thank you for the likes and comments. They mean more than you know.

It took me by surprise,
you standing there out in the open,
where I had to acknowledge that you actually exist.
I hadn’t prepared myself
for seeing you so soon.
I raised my hand, tentatively waved,
because I didn’t know what else to do when
you haven’t spoken to someone in years, and
suddenly you see them through a car window.
At a distance like you
keep them in your heart.
I wanted to throw open the car door and run to you.
To ask all of the questions I’ve been saving up.
Are you happy?
Can you believe the state of things?
Were you watching when the Cubs won the series?
Will things ever change?
Do you ever think of me?
Instead, connected by blood,
but distanced by memories,
all I could manage was a wave
through a window.

I'm really, really far behind posting for this prompt, but I wrote this sometime ago and just never cleaned it up enough to share. Since I'm deep in a moment of writer's block, I figured I'd work on some older stuff. I wrote this after seeing my dad in the parking lot of a hotel where I had gone for a family reunion.

Your love was like
Traversing the clouds
I knew I would kiss the dust
Yet until the fall
I preferred being loved.
Your love was like
Losing an already lost gamble
Lead to despair
Carved an abyss full of woe
Yet till my bones turned to ashes
I preferred to play.
Your love was
A misleading labyrinth
Mystery filled to the brim.
Step and you wither.
Yet like an avenue full of green
I preferred to stride.
You were diabolically dark
And I, a faintly glowing firefly.
Burning my flesh
To linger in your love.
Wretched yet divine.
Your heart was rimed
My flames, you froze to death.
Fumes deep buried somewhere inside you,
Seek your lungs.
I certainly have a way out.
Yet I prefer to rest there eternally.
