Writing Space Within

The labyrinth at Hammonasset State Park, January 2018

I came upon a haiku I wrote while I was working on the Birthmarked trilogy, and it felt like a message to myself across time. It exactly captures the sense of my mind opening up with new space while I’m writing, and the doubleness I feel when my characters come alive.

Where Gaia calls one
side of me to the other
the wasteland opens
