October

Can you believe it’s already October? The leaves are going to start changing colors. There’s a chilly nip in the air. Mornings are growing darker. Honestly, I’m not ready for cold. I don’t like cold. I wish it was still summer, but you know what? I am excited about October. October is Halloween. You startContinue reading “October”

Character Dilemma

“I don’t see why we have to do this.” I’m straightening my notes as the lieutenant sits across from me. He folds his arms and crosses his legs and pointedly stares at the wall. I smile at him. As annoying as he can be, I love the sharp features I gave him. I’ve been puttingContinue reading “Character Dilemma”

Dwarf Crocodiles

If you don’t know by now, I work at a zoo. This month, my team gets the exciting opportunity to welcome a new animal to our care: a West African Dwarf Crocodile. My manager asked me to create a fact sheet about dwarf crocodiles, so I thought I’d share my findings with you! There isContinue reading “Dwarf Crocodiles”

Everyone has those random thoughts you have throughout the day. Something might be stuck on your chest that you just can’t shake off. Writing helps me shake things off and maybe checking out these random thoughts might help you? Sometimes, we don’t realize that other people can think or feel the same way about a topic that we might think is off the wall.

To the Sunflowers

To the sunflowers on the side of the roadBrightening the land and lightening the loadsOf those headed to work, or leaving homeGoing somewhere with a sour toneA dreary drive day after dayBut your sunshine keeps the misery awayJust a simple flower in the highwayYellow petals on shades of grayHere for a season and gone againToContinue reading “To the Sunflowers”

Mwezi Hu

My dungeons and dragons group began a new campaign a couple weeks ago. I thought I’d share the tale with you. We’re following the storyline of “Dungeons and Dragons; The Curse of Strahd.” A dead scent trails through the luscious forest. With it, I feel the faintest of a chill that conflicts with the noonContinue reading “Mwezi Hu”

Personal Writer’s Block

How many times have you find yourself staring at your computer screen or journal and you just can’t figure out what to put on the page? Maybe you have a deadline, but you’ve lost motivation. You find yourself scrolling through the internet instead of getting done the things you need to get done. That’s whereContinue reading “Personal Writer’s Block”

Silver Lining

When all is dark and treacherous A light does shine throughIt creates a silver lining For us to hold onto You see it in the cloudsOn a dark and stormy dayYou see it on the horizonThe sun beats shadows away Everyone’s silver liningMeans one thing or anotherIt can be in different formsBut to us itContinue reading “Silver Lining”

I’m so excited to celebrate the fact that this is my 200th post! For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been posting on this website twice a week since October 14th, 2020. It’s been an incredible ride and I plan on keeping it going. All the poems, animal facts, stories, victories and defeats. There’sContinue reading “200!!!”

What Color Are You?

Have you ever done any of those Facebook surveys where it’s like: “Answer these questions and we’ll tell you what color you are!” Or “Answer these questions and find out what Hogwarts you belong in!” Which celebrity would be your sweety or what tattoo you should get. Some of them are probably spam, but othersContinue reading “What Color Are You?”

About Me

Hey, I’m Nikki! I am a nerdy geek who has a passion for writing, drawing, painting, and many other art media.

Over ten years ago, I started writing a novel and developing my skills as a writer, and, now, that novel is near completion! I do consider myself a Christian writer, but most of my stories are all fantasy and sci-fi based. Read more...
