He Sweeps

Enzo Stephens

A cold night
A dark night
An unforgiving wind
A merciless city
A vast expanse of fresh asphalt
Black on black
Crisp, white painted lines
Split the ebon of night and asphalt
And the man
With his broom
Pushing, sweeping
Endlessly
To cleanse the filth
Of the merciless city
Every night
Rain, shine, snow or calm
He sweeps
The push broom worn to nubs
Yet he sweeps
Cleansing filth
The filth of sin
That accumulates in the light of day
To be cleansed in the night
He sweeps
As he has done before it was paved
As he has done before it had packed dirt
As he has done beyond memory
Beyond time
He sweeps
The suns weaves light into the tapestry of night
His work for the night is almost complete
His sweeping comes to an end
Their sins are forgiven
Salvation is at hand
The asphalt is pristine
He faces east
And fades from the light
Until the next nightfall
When he will sweep again

LYNN MICLEA: SUCCESS AS AN AUTHOR

SUCCESS AS AN AUTHOR

Lynn Miclea

Many new writers and authors often wonder what it takes to be considered a successful author. How many books do they need to sell before they are considered successful? How much money do they need to make in royalties before they can say they’ve really made it? How is success measured?

In our society, and for many of us, success is often defined as money, fame, and power. But I think we do ourselves a big disservice when we define it that way, or base it on specific numbers reached, whether it’s book sales or income.

What about an author who has only published a few books, but they are well-written, filled with heart, humor, and gut-wrenching honesty? What about a new author’s book that opens up unique and fascinating worlds to explore? Or an author’s story that shares the overcoming of a huge difficulty in life that can inspire and help others? Or a new author’s book that touches the lives of others in powerful and profound ways? Would you say they are not successful?

I used to think of success in terms of a huge number of books sold, a steady income from royalties, and being on the best-seller list. However, those goals may be fleeting, arbitrary, unrealistic, and self-defeating – using those as criteria for success can discourage or undermine talented writers, stop them from doing their best, or cause them to give up too soon. You can be successful without reaching those typically out-of-reach goals for most writers – so don’t sell yourself short. And don’t give up.

To me, success is measured in the fulfillment of publishing the ideas and stories within me. It is in producing well-written and memorable books, stories, and articles that I can be proud of. It is in touching the lives of others through my words. It is putting my creative thoughts and imagination into a cohesive and powerful story, and getting that on paper in a way that is touching, heart-felt, and powerful.

Success is not a destination – success is a living, breathing, shifting journey of discovery and creativity that you can choose to be part of.

If you have done your best with as much integrity as possible, are proud of your work, and are happy with who you are and where you are, then you are successful. That is the success we should strive for.  And that is in your hands, within your grasp.

Success is the expression of and explosion of creativity, heart, and imagination, all coming together in powerful and moving stories. It is exciting and fulfilling and continues to unfold in spectacular new ways and in glorious wonder.

Number of books sold? That doesn’t even come close.

Go for real success – the fulfillment of a dream. And that is something all of us can do.

CAPITONYMS

capitonym is a word that changes its meaning, and sometimes its pronunciation as well, when it is capitalized. These words generally mean one thing with a lower case letter, and another thing when they are capitalized.

For example, rich (lower case) usually means wealthy. However, Rich (with a capital “R”) refers to a man’s name. Below are a few more examples.

Examples:

  • Bill — a name short for William / bill — an amount to be paid
  • Carol — a woman’s name / carol — a hymn or Christmas song
  • March — the third month of the year / march — a style of walking
  • Nice — a city in France / nice — kind or pleasant
  • Turkey — a country / turkey — a North American bird

***

Please look at the chart for many more capitonyms.

Here’s the plan:

  • You write a story of 3000 words or less (minimum 500 words) or poem (minimum 50 words) based on and referring to the image provided and post it on the author site you wish to promote. Don’t forget to give your story a title. (Note: You do not have to have a website/blog/FB author page to participate, your FB profile or WordPress link is fine.)
  • Please edit these stories. We will do minor editing, but WU! reserves the right to reject publishing the story if poorly written.
  • The story must have a title and author name and must include the link to the site you wish to promote.
  • Send the story and link to the site via Facebook Messenger to Deborah Ratliff or email to writersunite16@gmail.com. Put “Write the Story” in the first line of the message.

Tower of Possibilities

Lynn Miclea

Diane’s breath came in fast, raspy gasps, and she stopped for a few minutes to rest and look around. The spiral staircase went up a long way, and her footsteps echoed in the tall, empty chamber. She shook her head and tears stung her eyes. Grief threatened to overwhelm her again.

She had just lost Robbie yesterday. He had been shot and killed in front of her, and it was her fault. How could she not have seen that coming? She should have prevented it. Damn!

They had been crouched behind the sofa during the agency’s operation, hidden for the moment. The bad guy had entered the room from the left side. She knew the snipers would get him. Finally. This was the moment they had all prepared for. She held her breath.

And then Robbie started getting up. She grabbed for him, but he got up too quickly. The sniper fired. The bullet hit Robbie.

She gasped again at the memory, a deep aching wave of grief flooding her as she choked on a sob. No!

Diane resumed running up the stairs. It was a great place for both exercise and working off emotions, but it was not helping today. Would anything help? She doubted it. Not only had she been there to protect Robbie, but she had fallen in love with him, and he had recently moved in with her. He was the world to her. And now he … he …

She picked up the pace and continued up the stairs. As she ran, she noticed doors every now and then along the stairwell. Where did they lead? From what she knew, there were no rooms off this tower.

Glancing as she continued up, she noticed numbers on the doors: 1952 … 1964 … 1975 … The numbers struck her as years, but that made no sense. What was happening?

Stopping at the next closest door, she looked at the number — 1989. After hesitating for a few moments, she slowly opened the door. She found herself in a round chamber with twelve doors arranged around the circular wall. Each door had the name of a month on it. Confused, she stared at them as a shiver ran up her spine. She slowly backed out, entering the stairwell again. What was that room for?

Shaking her head, she continued up the stairs, and the doors kept appearing. 1996 … 2004 … 2012 …

Finally reaching the top, panting and out of breath, she saw one last door. The current year. Why?

She opened it and entered the round chamber. Peering around the room, she saw twelve doors, each with the name of a month on it, just like the previous chamber.

Feeling drawn to the current month, she slowly opened the door, hearing it creak as it opened into another round chamber. This room contained numbered doors — the days of the month. She rushed to yesterday’s door. Maybe she could change what had happened. Is that what the doors were for? Was she being given that chance to change what had occurred? Was that even possible?

Opening the door with yesterday’s date led to another round chamber containing rooms with the hours on their doors. Her heart pounding in her chest, she raced to the door with the hour before Robbie was shot.

Slowly opening the door, she peered inside. The room where it had all taken place opened before her. The sofa. Robbie. And there she was as well, crouched behind the sofa next to Robbie, her back toward her. Sweat broke out over her scalp.

Without thinking, she felt herself pulled into the room. She now felt whisper-light and floated toward her crouched body. She felt herself gliding through her back, drifting into her body.

She put her hand on Robbie’s back, feeling the warmth of his body. She focused, alert and vigilant. Footsteps sounded in the room. The smell of an old cigar. She immediately knew the bad guy had entered from the side. It was going to happen. She knew the sniper was ready. It was about to go down.

Robbie shuffled and started to rise. No! She grabbed him and pulled him back. He fell against her with a thud.

The bad guy’s voice rang out. “What —”

A shot pierced the air. A gasp and then something thumped to the floor. She peeked around the sofa — the bad guy lay on the floor, eyes open in shock, a red stain widening on his shirt in the middle of his chest. He had been hit by the sniper’s bullet.

And Robbie was safe. Baffled, but safe. Relief flooded her system. She did it!

She felt herself drifting out from the back of her body. Looking back, she saw her body still holding Robbie. The bad guy was there sprawled on the floor …

And then she was back in the stairwell. Did that actually happen? Had she saved him? Was this just a wild fantasy? Was she hallucinating?

Her mind ran through her recent memories … This morning he had made scrambled eggs for her. But no, that couldn’t have happened — she remembered making cold cereal by herself, and she was all alone … what was going on? Nothing made sense.

Excited and hopeful, she turned and ran back down the stairs, trying not to go too fast. Nervous and jittery, she rushed and suddenly missed one step. Skidding, she fell hard on the next step. She stood, brushed herself off, and then continued down the stairs a bit slower, careful not to trip again.

New feelings flooded her. Fullness … love … mixed with a tinge of grief. She no longer knew what was real or what to believe.

Tears streamed down her cheeks. This was impossible. It could not have happened. She was delusional. It all had to have been a figment of her overactive imagination.

As she rounded a curve in the staircase, a wispy white cloud floated in the stairwell. Thoughts immediately filled her mind. We have allowed you to make this one change, as it was needed to save thousands of lives in the near future.

The cloud dissipated. What was that? Another idle fantasy? None of this was possible.

Her muscles straining, feeling sore and fatigued, she continued down the stairs and finally reached the bottom of the tower. Sweat beaded on her skin and she gasped for breath. Exiting the tower, she blinked in the bright sunlight. How could any of this have possibly happened? She must be simply having a wild fantasy. There was no way any of that could be true. It was all a wishful illusion, nothing more.

Shaking her head at her absurd fantasies, she rushed home. She had to get a better grip on what was real. She needed to face reality and what actually happened. She had lost Robbie yesterday. That was a fact. She refused to be lost in a delusion.

She slowed as she approached her house and hesitated at the front door. Her hand shaking, she opened the door slowly, as fear, desperation, and hope warred inside her.

Entering the house, she froze and then looked around. Her heart pounded and her throat constricted. It was quiet. He must not be …

“Diane?” Robbie’s voice called out.

“Robbie?” Her voice was barely a whisper.

“Hi, honey, how was your run?” He came out of the kitchen and his arms opened to embrace her.

Gasping and sobbing, she fell into his arms, feeling his warm body against hers. She buried her head in his neck, inhaling his familiar scent. He was here!

“I love you,” she murmured into his chest.

Robbie laughed. “Hey, I love you too. And that must have been some run today.”

“You have no idea,” she whispered, tightly hugging him.

***

ASSENT versus ASCENT

People often mix up the words assent and ascent. Although these words sound the same and there is only one letter different, they have different meanings and uses. This should help to use them properly.

***

Assent is a verb meaning to agree to or to approve of something, and a noun meaning approval. If you mean to agree to or approve of something, use assent.

Examples:

  • He gave his assent to the boss and then started the work.
  • She assented to all the terms and conditions.
  • He smiled and nodded in assent.
  • She would not assent to the extra work and told him no.
  • He wanted to assent to it but changed his mind and turned it down.
  • At first she said no, but then she finally gave her assent.
  • The doctor asked for the patient’s assent before scheduling surgery.
  • When asked, he murmured his assent.
  • He wanted her assent, but he had to ask again before getting it.
  • She signed the paper, giving her assent.

***

Ascent is a noun meaning a rise or climb upward, and it can also mean an upward slope. The verb would be to ascend. If you mean a climb upward, use ascent.

Examples:

  • He began the ascent up the rocky mountain.
  • She thought twice about making such a steep ascent.
  • He loved climbing and found the ascent invigorating.
  • She worried that the ascent was too steep.
  • The elevator began its ascent to the tenth floor.

  • His quick ascent up the corporate ladder raised some questions.
  • He was surprised by his quick ascent to stardom.
  • She found the ascent up the mountain quite dangerous.
  • The ascent of the mountain took five hours.

***

Hint: Ascent has a C in it for climb.

If you mean to agree to or approve, use assent.

If you mean to climb or move upward, use ascent.

He assented to make the steep ascent up the mountain.

WRITING TIPS, TOOLS, AND TIDBITS!: DESSERT versus DESERT

DESSERT versus DESERT

People often mix up the words dessert and desert. To make it more difficult and confusing, dessert has only one meaning and pronunciation, while desert has multiple meanings, parts of speech, and pronunciation. This should help clarify things and help you use them properly

Dessertspelled with two S’s (and accent on the second syllable), is a noun that means a sweet treat eaten after a meal. If you are referring to a sweet treat after a meal, then use dessert.

Examples:

  • The best part of the meal for me is always dessert.
  • She made a banana cream pie for dessert.
  • My favorite dessert is anything with chocolate.
  • I need to make sure I don’t eat too many desserts.
  • For dessert, she brought a strawberry shortcake.
  • He always preferred ice cream for dessert.

Desertspelled with one S, and with an accent on the first syllable, is a noun that means a dry, barren region with little or no rain and little or no vegetation. If you are referring to a dry, barren, sandy area, then use desert.

Examples:

  • A desert might appear barren, but there is still some life there.
  • It’s so hot, dry, and sandy here that it looks like a desert.
  • The Sahara is the largest desert.
  • It was a difficult trek across the dry desert.
  • They had a hard time finding shelter in the vast desert.
  • The Gobi and Mojave are well-known deserts.

Additional meanings and uses

Desert, spelled with one S, and with the accent on the second syllable (pronounced the same as dessert), is a verb meaning to leave or abandon someone or something. It can also mean a suitable punishment as in just deserts. If you are referring to leaving or abandoning something, then use desert.

Examples:

  • She chose to desert her job and she left without any notice.
  • He deserted his apartment but left his belongings behind.
  • She looked around and saw the whole place was deserted.
  • He deserted her when she was sick and needed him the most.
  • She deserted her family and moved to another state.
  • He was mean but finally got his just deserts.

A hint to help you remember:

Two S’s in dessert is for something sweet, strawberry shortcake, or because it’s so good you want two. If you mean a sweet end to the meal, use dessert.

One S in desert is for sand. If you mean a dry, sandy area, use desert.

One S in desert is for sayonara.If you mean to leave or abandon something, use desert.

Please look at the chart for an easy summary and helpful reminder.

BREATH versus BREATHE

People often mix up the words breath and breathe. Although they may look similar, they are different parts of speech and are used differently. Breath is a noun, and breathe is a verb. The information shown here should help people use the words properly.

Breath is a noun that rhymes with death. It means the air that is inhaled and exhaled, respiration, or time to rest. If you are using a noun, use breath.

Examples:

  • She paused and took a deep breath.
  • He had chest pain and shortness of breath.
  • She slowly let out her breath.
  • He took a break and sat down to regain his breath.
  • She went outside for a breath of fresh air.
  • His breath was visible in the cold air.
  • She swam to the surface and took a huge breath.
  • He stopped running so he could catch his breath.
  • She had a hard time holding her breath.
  • He muttered under his breath as he left.

Breathe is a verb that rhymes with seethe. It means to take in air, to inhale and exhale, to pause or rest, or to blow lightly. If you are using a verb, use breathe.

Examples:

  • He tried to relax and breathe normally.
  • The air she was breathing was toxic.
  • He found it increasingly hard to breathe.
  • She breathed a sigh of relief after her medical exam.
  • His shirt was made of a material that breathes.
  • Her boss was always breathing down her neck.
  • She let the wine breathe before serving it.
  • He lives and breathes for hiking.
  • Breathe in through your nose.
  • Let’s breathe new life into this game.

Basically, if you want a noun, use breath.

If you want a verb, use breathe.

Hint: Breathe has an “e” at the end and a long “ee” sound.

If it’s cold, you can see your breath when you breathe.

Please look at the chart for an easy summary and helpful reminder.
