The Élance Newsletter 07
2nd Half of December 2021
Welcome to the seventh newsletter of The Élance!
2021 has come and gone, and we’ve survived. I also unexpectedly got a few poems published in some online literary journals and in a printed anthology which were both a big deal for me, personally. Last year helped me see more clearly that I have a lot of work to do to become a much greater and profitable writer and that there is no better time as they say than now to pursue it. Time doesn’t wait.
It is the time to charge further ahead — in my writing, in my personal goals, and in achieving more things that would make myself proud. Maybe this past year or so was a recharge because most of the world has been reeling indoors from this pandemic. Maybe having been able to stay indoors for extended periods of time got me thinking about how much time I do have left on this earth. Maybe just having a few acceptances for publishing into some of those literary journals after so many rejections has finally given me the shred of evidence I needed to prove to myself that I could do this if I keep working on it and trying harder.
So these past few weeks, I have been writing from prompts to keep myself writing and thinking about writing. I’ve written poems, micro fictions, and haikus. I can do this!
Well, below are links of some of the product of this year’s writing. Please take a read and let me know your thoughts.

Here are a few year-end seasonal and celebratory poems you might still enjoy:
“Privileges are often taken-for-granted when unrealized until you are forced to live without them.”
“At the same time, it’s also a word I associate with giving power (rightfully or wrongfully) to anything that can use it for ill or for good.”
“When perfection or expectations are unmet; when the unexpected but natural occurrences emerge from living life, can’t life still be lived in the imperfect?”
“…this is a fiction stringing consecutive Twitter prompts between 31 October to 12 November 2021”.
“Fairytales have this magical quality because they allow you to put yourself in a dream state and follow the narratives to wherever they take you.”
“There has always been an internal debate between writing in a journey by traditional pen and paper and jotting down on my digital phone when a fleeting moment arises…”
