Lonely Author Stockings Stuffers

Ugh. Not another fiasco. Last year it was my failed Christmas venture – The Lonely Author Glow in the Dark Yo-Yo (No Strings Attached).

Now my special toy for this holiday season won’t make the Kmart shelves. Yes, I am sorry to announce you won’t be finding The Lonely Author Action figures in your stockings this year.

To make it up to you, I will make a few recommendations.

Everything I Never Told You – Many of you already know Tosha Michelle, in case you don’t you, have to read her work. Ever since Lonely Author was a little boy he rooted for the underdog. Here is a brave, poetic Little Engine That Could entitled The Poem That Wanted to be a Rock Anthem. http://laliterati.com/2015/12/13/the-poem-that-wanted-to-be-a-rock-anthem/

Christina Strigas – Chrissy has a unique writing style; delightful feminine tough girl. Her words jump off the page. Being the King of my castle I have little affinity from strong female voices (Excuse me one second. Yes, dear.  Uh-huh. Can I do the breakfast dishes after I finish this post please? Thanks Snookums).  Here is a post from yesterday entitled Never. https://christinastrigas.wordpress.com/2015/12/21/never/

Love Letters Lost At Sea – I accidentally discovered this blog Saturday evening. She recently started re-blogging. She doesn’t have many poems posted yet, but they are all good. Here is a link to a small paragraph she wrote entitled Flaw. It is well worth your time. https://loveletterslostatsea.wordpress.com/2015/12/19/flawed/

Moonskittles – This is the most versatile writer I have ever met. She can write anything (and do it well). Her writing is brilliant and then surprise; this school teacher is one of the funniest person I have ever met. She’s made me cry more than the IRS. Do yourself a favor, you need to meet her. https://moonskittles.wordpress.com/

I hope you enjoy my suggestions.

Happy holidays

Keep smiling

Keep writing

    1. Not true. Your writing comes straight from the heart. You already have a heart that’s ten times a normal sized heart. Be well my friend. I read a post that saddened me. Try your best to have a very Merry Christmas. I will be getting to that link you sent me today or tomorrow. Its been a crazy week.

  2. Well you know I had to follow that Poem That Wanted to Be A Rock Anthem woman. I’ll have to check out the rest as well. And by the way, what is up with that no action figures thing? They told me mine was coming out in 2012 for God’s sake!

      1. Well, it’s actually a very sad story but it had a string attached and when you pulled it it was supposed to say “What do you want to write about today” but mine just said “f*** off” so, yeah, they had to pull it off the shelves as well.

  3. Ohhh, I feel special to be sharing the same stocking-space with these fine women! Your supporting hand and words of praise are going to keep me forget about claustrophobia.. 😀

  4. Wonderful suggestions. I especially liked the piece entitled, Flaw. It was quite moving. I am certain she has had some difficult experiences that have given her the opportunity to let the words naturally flow from her heart and soul. Sometimes I wonder if it’s a gift or a curse.
    Thank you for sharing her work.

        1. i doubt you would be leaving little guy behind.
          I know you wouldn’t
          even with me in your life
          he must come first.

          in fact here is the order of importance

          1- little guy
          2- Amani
          3- Lonely Author and his raging hard ons

          fuck that make Lonely Author number 4

          1. I would never leave him anywhere. You know me

            how did Amani get bumped up.to second place? I mean I DO heart him very tenderly so maybe…

            I’d put your raging hard ons 4th because they’re not much use to me without you attached to them

                      You
                      Loving whispered in my ear
                      passions making me so weak
                      kisses igniting my lonely heart
                      gentle fingers grazed my cheek
                      Sweaty bodies entwined as one
                      no I never wanted to let you go
                      gentle fingers caressed my soul
                      need you more than you can know
                      My body groans as I see your face
                      I knew it was too good to be true
                      yes tonight I made love to another
                      another night pretending it was you

                      god my poetry sucked more than the hoes in old Soho

                    4. It’s hard to explain. I try to write about how it makes me.feel and even that doesn’t do it justice.

                      Mostly I am beyond happy because I feel like I never tell.you how to write or what to write or when to write lol. It just all. comes to you because I love you the way you should have been loved for so long.

                      so.
                      It fills me with an emotion that has no word in the English language.
                      But it makes me feel like my heart is trying to escape my chest and come find you.

                      That’s the best way I can explain it

            1. so, when I was singing in the duo a few years ago, the guitarist liked the way I sang in Spanish so he suggested I sing besame mucho . I love that song so much.
              But.

              In cypriot dialect (it’s Greek but there are a lot of different words) mucho actually means jerking off. It’s a crude way of saying it lol. And besame if you pronounce it with a z sound instead of an s sound means we were playing.
              And so when you put them.together you have the whole cypriot phrase basically meaning “We were jerking off.”
              I sang it for a couple.of weeks then we removed it from the set because I couldn’t keep a straight face and all the Greek hotel staff were laughing their heads off.

              so funny

              but i seriously adore that song. except when I over think it lol

              Like

                    1. No, the name of the song! as if I would write like that lol

                      but yeah.

                      you could play death metal and/or trance music which I CANT STAND and I’d be happy if I was in your crib lol
