Welcome to another Friday Favorite! Each week I will bring to you information about a favorite blog/blogger that is a favorite of mine. Please be sure to take a minute to explore their blog and they might just become a favorite of yours too!
This week, I’d like to introduce you to The Stories In Between. River Dixon’s imaginative way of expression is thought provoking, stunning and always a surprise. Some of his pieces are dark & brooding, but their brilliance is clear. THIS is a piece I found quite sad and sweet. River’s poetry will sometimes leave the interpretation up to the reader. But everything makes you ponder… Like THIS POEM.
The Stories In Between will take you on an emotional roller coaster. River writes of love, hate, life, death, darkness and light. Through this journey, you may just find yourself breathless. For you never know for sure which way the coaster will go. THIS piece is touching and sad, but eloquently penned.
River Dixon is an accomplish author, having published several books that are collections of his poetry and short stories. HERE is where you can find information about his books. I’ve purchased 2 of his books, The Stories In Between, which is short stories and Left Waiting, a poetry collection. Both, amazing works. THIS is his Amazon Author page.
So head over to The Stories In Between today. Explore the depth of talent you will find there. I’m going to bet that River’s blog will become a favorite of yours too!

My box of words is hoarded selfishly. Choosing and stockpiling each one carefully. I take inventory. I tuck them away in my little treasure box lined with memories tears and laughter. Yesterday's words are tinged aging and gnarled the edges curling. Today's words fat filled with promise. Choosing the right ones is a challenging feat not always accomplished with elegance.

Peering out from behind the boulder, I could see the plume of it’s breath. The fume, a cloud; glowing. It mixed with the mist off the lake until the entire night air was lit. Soon they’d see. Maybe throwing rocks to wake him wasn’t a good idea. But now, now they would believe me. Dragons do breath fire.

Penny Wilson Writes has gone through several transformations since it’s beginning. At the end of the year, the end of a decade, we all tend to look back and reflect. The last decade has seen the Biggest changes in my life. The. Biggest. My decision to move from Oregon to Texas, was the hardest decision I ever made, and it was the best decision I ever made. Words that come to mind when I think about the life that I have now are Thankful, Grateful and Blessed.
My time here on WordPress is included as one of those Blessings. Writing is an outlet for me, a way to express myself and the events in my life. The community here has been so supportive! Your encouragement gives me the courage to put myself out there, when in the past, I would have never dreamed of publishing anything I’ve written!
Welcome to another post of my Friday Favorites! I’m sorry that I skipped last Friday, but with being smack dab in the middle of the holidays, I suspect you understand. My goal, each Friday, is to bring you a little information about a Favorite Blogger of mine. Check them out and they may just become a favorite of yours too!
Chuck, at The Reluctant Poet is a favorite blogger of mine for several reasons. The reason that I originally connected with Chuck is because he writes some of the most amazing and beautifully romantic poetry! THIS is an example of what I mean. Be sure to browse thru Chuck’s archives, you’ll find a treasure trove from a talented poet!
