It Is What It Is

What you’ll see below, and in the future, are a mix of Posts from the original It Is What It Is blog that ran from 2011 to 2017, along with new Posts representing my current life and where I am as a Writer today.

Julia the Dreamer: Return

“Come back. My parents…,” she yelled, but the dragon and rider were already heading away from the clearing. “My parents,” she said softly. The sound of many wings came from the opposite direction. Julia edged back onto the trail where she believed she wouldn’t be noticed and watched the hawks she had seen in her latest vision. In the front was the Red Witch on her bear-hawk. She appeared to be turning to follow the …

Julia the Dreamer: Parents

“No! No! No!” Cordyr stepped in front of Julia, both hands held up to stop the dragon. “She saved my life.” Celestral stared at her rider before returning her attention to Julia. “Are you from the Red Witch?” “Who’s the Red Witch?” Julia stayed glued to Cordyr.

“It’s not my fault,” she complained as she sat back. How could he know?

Julia the Dreamer: Ancient Forest

Light filtered through Julia’s closed eyelids.  She threw a hand up to block the sunlight pouring into her room through the broken slats in the blinds. Her heart beat rapidly and she took several deep breaths to calm herself. The Dream. Julia sighed and shifted her weight to a shadowed spot on her bed. She lay there for a few moments, then exhaled in what sounded almost like a moan. Another day on the farm. …

Julia the Dreamer: Hawks

Beams of moonlight shown through the stained lace curtains and broken shutters. It lit Julia’s face as she lay awake in bed. The taste of the overcooked chicken from supper still stuck in her throat. Is everything in Texas bone-dry? Like most nights, she comforted herself with thoughts of her parents. Not that she really remembered them, just images of a life that flashed into her mind. A time before she came to live with …
