A Brave Friend.

I have a friend who has PD. It makes him shake constantly. I feel he has it worse than me. His bravery is plain to see. I feel a fraud without such shakes. Ashamed of any fuss I make. His body suffers seismic quakes. I admire him for all he takes. My friend is young…

How to Plan to Write Right?

I have come to sit at my desk, to write, and I find myself facing what so many writers have described on their own social media and blog sites; an overwhelming sense of wanting to do everything all at once!  I have so many projects in mind and then there is social media to update! …

Writing Newsflash!

I have been dabbling with short stories and this week, I published three of them onto Amazon Kindle. If you are an Amazon Kindle Unlimited member, you will be able to download my e-books for free.  If not, then they are just £2.30. I hope you enjoy them.     (C) Dean Parsons. 2019.

Performance or Print?

As I sit here, at my desk, I am wondering about a short story that I have written.  It consists of less than two thousand words and yet it is as complete as any lengthy novel.  The story is rich with drama, intrigue and tension.  The interplay between the characters is one of increasing tension…

Construct Obstruct

Nothing.  Nascent note-maker’s nemesis. Scant.  Seeking stark symbolism somewhere. Without.  Where words wander while we wonder. Devoid.  Daydream’s dance distances details. Block. Blinding badlands build bold barriers. Absent.  Available art avoiding. Fix.  Finding features for focused forethought. Method.  Mindfully meet missing meaning. Outcome.  Overcome obtuse obstructions. Create.  Commission considered constructs. (C) Dean Parsons. 2019.    

Onwards

“Only those who attempt the absurd, can achieve the impossible.” – Albert Einstein. Today, I received something very pleasing, through the post. It was a certificate. I now have a Diploma in Creative Writing!  I am delighted.  My joy comes not just from achieving something that was always on my bucket-list and which opens up…

Beneath a Mexican Sky

When Paradise Calls.     It was May 1996.  I was twenty-four going on twenty-five years of age.  John Major was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and I felt like I had my whole life ahead of me.  I had spent half of January and pretty much all of February in Australia.  That was…

Words Causing Chaos

” Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with.  This is why it is given a bad name.  It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.” – Terence McKenna. In my work as a psychotherapist, I am also a Clinical…

Critical Meeting Places

I’m sitting at my desk and contemplating social media and how it fits into my writing career.  I have been doing research on how best to build the best online structures into place to support my writing career.  With my initial focus on social media, I have made a number of changes to my existing…

Final Submission

Today, I have submitted my final assignment for the course I have been studying.  I started the course in September 2017.  I had been writing since childhood, for my own pleasure.  I had never shown my writing to others with any regularity.  Writing was my guilty pleasure but, in my heart, I longed to feel…
