Injection Day – a poem

By Tessa Dean June 2020

Injection Day, wrought with fear,

As the doctor readies his gear.

Cleanse the spot to be injected,

We don’t want to become infected.

Anesthesia administered prick by prick,

Ow! Then comes the final stick!

Tessa Dean – Author

This is my new author’s blog. I will be using this as my author platform and I will be posting my short stories, flash fiction, poetry and other types of writing. I also write articles on subjects that I find interesting to me. I spent a year writing articles on Bipolar Disorder for International Bipolar Foundation.

I am also in the process of writing my memoirs and have posted 6 chapters to one of my memoirs on another blog. I am still in the process of writing my memoirs. I started in the middle of my life with my time spent as a military wife. They are a lot harder to write than I originally thought because my memory is failing. Last NANOWRIMO I started my memoir of my childhood years. That needs a lot of work before it is ready for posting on here.

I also have several different books started in the romance, thriller/mystery and horror/paranormal genres. With NANOWRIMO’s camp coming up in July I will be starting a new book and trying to outline it as I am a pantser and have never outlined a book before. We’ll see how that goes in July. I enter NANOWRIMO every time it is offered, which is 3 times a year, and sometimes I finish and sometimes I don’t.
