Lauren Bird Horowitz I'm a big fan of having several projects going at once, so if I'm stuck on something, I can work on something else and give my brain a little break.…more I'm a big fan of having several projects going at once, so if I'm stuck on something, I can work on something else and give my brain a little break. For me what is most helpful is working in different forms at the same time. I'll be working on the third novel for example and get stuck, and decide to transition to write some poetry. Sometimes poetry inspires me in the next turn in the novel, and sometimes the novel will inspire me to write poetry. I also do screenwriting, which is a completely different process altogether and much more collaborative, especially in television. I do try to make sure I'm working on something every day, otherwise I find that I become too precious about my work, and get frustrated when it doesn't come out perfectly. By making a daily habit, I feel much freer to experiment.(less)

“How can you live without everything touching you?”
Lauren Bird Horowitz, Shattered Blue

“The Lost Girls

Nomad girls are Lost Ones too,
With leaves at foot and crown;
They too seek shelter in the tress,
Drink Red and Gold and Brown.

Their circlets made of steam and rain,
Their lashes powdered ash,
They're firelight, they're fox's kill,
They're blood and sweat and scratch.

Lost Boys fly forever, and crow the rising sun.
They play all day in Neverland, their laughter mermaid-spun.
But Lost Girls live underground:
They steal from hole to hole.
They drink the shadows, wear the night,
And paint their cheeks with coal.

And when the wind turns colder,
They split a doe and climb inside.
Still-warm sinew wraps their hands,
Dead muscle soaks the light.

You'll never tell what's girl, what's beast,
Once bloody fur's been trussed-
So think your happy thoughts, Lost Boy,
Wish on your Fairy Dust.”
Lauren Bird Horowitz, Shattered Blue

“Judah knew Noa hadn't said it was good-bye. She'd done it as he would have done it, if he'd had the chance: with just an ordinary moment. Unremarkable moments were the ones you missed the most- the ones you didn't realize were precious at the time, and so later could not remember. The moments you lost, when you lost a sister.”
Lauren Bird Horowitz, Shattered Blue
