Tell Me About Yourself Award

Thank you very much to Resa McConaghy at for nominating mypenandme for this award. Resa is a costume designer and a blogger.  Please check out her wonderful blog.

Seven things about me that I haven’t shared:

1.  My computer technician came over and installed my new HP Printer/Scanner this evening.  Yay.

2.  This evening I finally purchased Final Draft.  I am sooooo excited.  It’s going to be a wonderful writing weekend.

3.  After I transfer my radio play to FINAL DRAFT, I will be submitting it in the BBC’s International Radio Playwriting Competition 2012.

4.  I would love to see more of my WordPress Friends participating in Three Word Wednesday.

5.  I slipped on some water indoors while at the shopping mall this past Saturday and bruised my butt.  No fun!

6.  I’m taking my class swimming tomorrow.  We will be doing this every Friday over the summer.

7.  I recently posted 40 myspace writers/poets as my TOP FRIENDS on myspace.  You can click on them and check out their work by going to and checking out my TOP FRIENDS.

at the college park shopping mall

at the college park shopping mall

an older unkempt male

appears agitated

he stops, turns, ploughs straight ahead

stops, turns, ploughs straight ahead


each time he draws nearer

she leans forward

tapping into his jibberish

like a two-bit thief

in the midst of a good overheard dialogue score


suddenly the man

lunges straight toward her

stops short

makes eye contact


“i went back to the house

last night and those

effing bastards raped

my dead corpse again”


filthy hands shaking

he pulls out a mickey

from brown paper bag

fingers label

puts it back

stares into her eyes

as if peering in through two windows


quite certain

that he’d been the victim

she feels

saddened . . .horrified . . . numb


through slow jittery exhale

she comtemplates a response

but has none


the man shakes his head

pivots lopsidedly

ploughs straight ahead

quickly ascends escalator

he is gone
