“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.” —Franz Kafka Wind had alchemized the Lake Ontario shore ice into chunks of sapphire and cobalt. I looked out at the January gray lake beyond. I knew I looked into the landscape within me. I imagine you know your own frozen sea. You may have not known that you carry an ice-axe sharpened for the work. Your words and intention are your double-bladed axe. Bring your words and intention to the edge of your frozen sea and begin. Write for at least twenty minutes.
I offer a free half-hour writing consultation to one of you. Send a page of your writing to my web mail. I’ll assign a number to each submission, put the numbers in a hat and draw one. Please include your email when you send me your writing. Thank you, ms
