Stories , Poems, and More By A.M. Moscoso

Obstacle Course
Think about what you wanted to accomplish last week. Did you? What are the things that hold you back from doing everything you’d like to do?


Last week I was determined, committed , deadly serious about returning to my writing. Actually it’s been a few more weeks then that but the point is I started posting something on my blog every single day and working on stories for Halloween and some new short stories.

I haven’t been able to do this for awhile, so I started this project called Blogging 101 at WordPress and I’ve been living and breathing what am I going to write about today.

So to keep myself focused ( that’s my way of saying goofing off and  not concentrating) I hung two of my voodoo dolls where I can see them when I write.






Ok. I’m not relying on Voodoo to keep me writing.

And I don’t stick pins in these dolls ( one is actually to scare away bad spirits and the other is to attract good ones)

 But when my mind wanders and I feel the urge to play on facebook or channel surf or otherwise get distracted  I look up at them…

and sometimes I would swear they maybe moved a little…or maybe not and I’m pretty sure I was the one who moved them around a bit, maybe when I was dusting (its been so hot and the air here in Terrace is sort of ick right now )

on the other hand.

No sense in taking chances.

No reason to let them think that I am the one who is bringing the bad Mojo into our space.

And I go straight back to writing.
