Nightshiftster is my personal writing blog that consists of short stories, memoirs and poetry that I’ve amassed over the last 15 years or so. When I first started this blog, I was just typing up poems that I had on looseleaf, in notebooks, and scrap pieces of paper. Now I try to post at least once or twice a day, or when someone or something moves me. This space has become a sort of habitual sacred haven for me, and I honor it to the best of my ability.
It’s also always been my dream to write or self-publish my own book of poetry. I have had a few poems published and have created a zine, but alas, no book as of yet. I plan on doing so in the near future and for now, wordpress will do. 😉 On a side note, I am happy to say I run a high school literary arts magazine called Epic Toast and we are in our third year of publishing.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading my poetry. Please don’t be afraid or too shy to like posts or leave comments! I really like to hear from people that read my blog. I’m also open to following your blog, so please stay in touch.
Wondering where I get all my awesome photos? Check out my husband’s photography blog: bvolunuev.wordpress.com
I have a few other blogs that I use on other platforms. If you’re on this site, you are probably on the other ones too, so please follow me there as well! Check these out:
Hi! I’m so pleased that you recently visited and decided to follow my blog on:
“Randa Lane…” is now devoted almost entirely to haiku, tanka, other short verse forms.
I’ve just been reading your poetry and have been absolutely blown away by its power, beauty, and maturity of poetic expression!! With joy I now “follow” you! If you have written a book of poetry, I would love to purchase a copy. Please let me know? 🙂
Thank you so much for following back. I really like your poetry as well and love all the links you have to other poets. I am finding some really good stuff to read and inspire me.
I WISH I could publish a book. That has been a dream of mine. I will get to it some day. Thank you for your kind words.
Nice and interesting blog! Thanks for following “Known is a drop, Unknown is an Ocean”. 🙂
Thank you. Yours is great also!
First, thank you for the follow. I appreciate that. I self-published a book of my poetry a couple years ago. It’s not hard, and I loved the process. I used iUniverse, but there are many indie publishers out there. Do the research and choose the one that fits your needs. I decided to just go for it, and how glad I am that I did. I want to do another one now and have the idea and title. Now I need to get everything organized and I’ll be on it. I’ll be glad to be support for you if you decide to do this.
Thank you so much for your comment. I will definitely look into it and contact you if I need some help. 🙂
I absolutely love your poetry! I am an aspiring writer as well. I mostly write poetry and short stories, and hopefully may write a whole novel one day. Glad to have found this lovely space of yours 🙂
Aw! Thanks! That is very kind of you. I appreciate the compliment very much!
Hi, I wanted to thank you for the follow! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers 😉
Keep up the good work.
Hi! You’re welcome. I noticed that your poems are in Italian, but I really like the ones in English, so I followed anyway. 🙂
Hi there! Thank you for visiting and following HoB. Much appreciated!
I really like your poems and can connect with them. I recently started a blog and am slowly building it up and I really hope you can find the time to read it. I’ve posted a poem ‘ A Woman’s Prayer’ on it… I took Literature in the university but this is my novice attempt at writing poetry. I would really appreciate your feedback on my writing. Thanks.
