flax-golden tales: glitter never fades

September 23rd, 2011 by erin

glitter never fades

She was warned, so many times. Cautioned in soft-spoken admonishments and harsh annoyed cries.

It is dangerous to play with such permanent things. Temporary matters make better playthings, providing no long-term damage.

But she was always an impulsive child.

The easily popped soap bubbles held no appeal, nor did water-soluble paints or erasable markers.

Only glitter served her purposes. Shiny, shimmering glitter that sticks and holds and never, ever lets go.

Now she is older and wiser and more conservative in her glitter usage, when she dares use it at all.

It makes one cautious, having a past permanently dusted with sparkling regrets.

    Hello! I just ordered The Night Circus from my library after seeing it on the Barnes and Noble website as I was browsing for a new book to read. The summary really intrigued me, and as I read a bunch of the reviews I instantly knew that it was my kind of book. :) Someone mentioned your blog in a review so I decided to pop on over here! Anywho, I really love your writing; it’s just the style I like. I actually play at writing novels; I have 7 so far, all unfinished, but I hope to finish at least one by the end of the year! I love writing poetry, too. :) Can’t wait to read your book!

  2. Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.
