“Are you going to put me in one of your books?”

"If you wou’d not be forgottenAs soon as you are dead and rotten,Either write things worth reading,or do things worth the writing." The quote above is credited by many sources to Benjamin Franklin. Did he say it? Most likely, or he may have derived his own interpretation of it from someone else who came before … Continue reading “Are you going to put me in one of your books?”

“What Is It You #Fear?” – A #Halloween #Poem

Author P.S. Bartlett

scary Sleepy Hollow

“What is it you fear?”
He asked, “My dear sir…”
As he coiled his finger to the sky.

“Is it the Devil, or Me?”
He asked, with a nod,
as if affirming an “Aye.”

“Is it darkness? Death?”
He asked leaning in
As his eyes grew brighter and wide.

“Is it the manner of death?
He asked with a smirk.
“For to know, you’d need only confide.”

“I fear nothing!”
I cried, as I pushed him away.
“Not, you, not death nor the manner!”

“But here you have come,”
He stated appalled,
at my angry assertion and banter.

“I’m here for your blood,”
I stated quite plain.
“Yes, yours–for you’re nothing to fear.”

“You think you are brave,
But you’re simple—a fool whose feet should

have tread far from here.”

“You mistake me kind sir,”
He said with a hiss.
“Your head shall be mine, wait and see!”

How long did it take you to write your first book?

If I remember correctly, all in
all about three months. The actual writing took about a month but add in all
the research, editing, rewrites etc. and three months sounds about right.

What inspired you to start writing?

The voices!

Yes, the voices is what I tell
people but as writers, we know what that means. It isn’t like we hear actual
voices but more like our imagination is speaking to us in the voice of a
character. Mine was Ennis, a little boy who had a story he wants me to tell
about his life. I was on a treadmill at Planet Fitness and he wouldn’t stop
“telling” me his story. I finally agreed and FIREFLIES was born.

How many drafts did you do before you felt it was ready to publish?

About three—four if…
