Steve Robison

I love writing. Writing excites me, moves me, fulfills me. It’s my passion and my purpose.

If you love reading, I hope you’ll find something worthy here. As Ben Franklin said in Poor Richard’s Almanac:

“If you would not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten
Either write things worth reading
Or do things worth the writing.”

I write because I love writing. And I write so people might cry at my funeral.


P.S. If you love my writing, please consider buying one or more of my books, writing a review, and reaching out and letting me know. Thanks a million.

Silver-grey strands
Silky heavens woven through
A vixen in lambs’ wool
Happy to be lost
In the glassy reflections
Of your bright new eyes

Lost in each step
One foot fallen in line
Behind the other
One step
One day
One ancient gaze

Feeling the sucking chill
Icy cold awakenings
Dive into the thrill

Frenetic waters rage
Pulled toward the valley dim
Wracked and rocked and thrown
As the speed of life grows thin

A river of tenuous trust
Through jarring and... Read More »

Life is, in large part, as I think it is.

While I know this to be true, I sometimes get stuck.

I get caught up sometimes in the concept of shared reality, of “one plurality.” We are one and we are many. I affect the universe but am but one of many co-creators. Some of what I see, I have created directly, and much of what I see was created by others.

Other times I get confused because I create not only by conscious but by subconscious thoughts and feelings. (Feelings are thoughts, too, much like news and poetry both express and communicate, but at opposite ends... Read More »

I have three writing modes.

1. Disciplined
2. Intentional
3. Inspired

I’m not sure those are the perfect adjectives, but they’re in the ball park. I spend most of my time in the middle, as it flows easily enough and I rarely feel the need to force myself. And when I feel I can’t write, I just start, and that feeling falls away soon enough. Once I start writing I can pretty much always write. I’ve proved that hundreds of times at free writes and the last eight weeks writing my weekly assignments which all turned out quite good.

But I don’t feel I spend a... Read More »
