"Jesus Christ has the world's greatest imagination ever, and I seek to emulate Him always"

I'm Britta Kirk. I write about loads of things. Fiction, mostly. Poetry, every so often. Most often about love. My goal as a writer at the moment: to find new and chimerical ways to discover love.

I'm currently writing my first novel which should be coming to e-book stores on your net by the end of the year.

I sing, play ukulele, dabble in song writing, photography, and live an over all chimera filled life. Enjoy, and welcome to the arena. (if you thought this was a Hunger Games allusion, you were right. PEETA!)

Brave Amber Beats: Chrysalis | A fable about Waiting by Britta Kirk

beatsparkpow:

A man placed a ring as old as sand, saturated with every drop of love in his heart, into a pot of golden wax. He fashioned a candle from the wax, and gave it to his love. She came into the market place one fair day, kaleidoscopic ribbons strung through her braids. He glimpsed her in a moment, and…

Working with this awesome grunge setting, and this awesome harp in a scene. I LOVE it when scenes come, and build themselves!

News: So I intern with a Literary Agency, and the Agent I assist has invited me to submit my novel to him once it’s finished!

Of course, this doesn’t mean much…YET! But, dang, really? Can’t tell you how SOUPED I am right now. And it’s my last day here…that’s sad, actually. Thank God for these serendipities!

Evanescence - My Immortal (by EvanescenceVEVO)

Writing to this tonight. 5 years ago, the story came alive to me on a ride to Virginia, while Amy Lee crooned this in my ears.

45141 words thus far on my Exploratory Draft.

Feels great! I feel like I’m getting back into the grind again. I cannot wait to see the final product, but all that matters is I’ve finally moved beyond the fact that first drafts suck pretty hard. They’re wounding, but I thank God I can do all things through Him.

"Tonight, I’m going to write greatly and love greatly and strangle this folly. I’m catching these damnable changes of purpose in the flesh, red-handed, and throwing them to the winds, just like that. I challenge whatever comes into me at times like this to look me in the eye, I challenge the possession of my being:—perhaps for variety’s sake. Oh yes, I know that I should never have been a writer, it’s not in my nature, but we will see this out to the end. 2000-words tonight."

A dream is being realized

I’ve always dreamt of a day where I could ready myself for a photoshoot for the cover of my novel. Well, it’s happening, ladies and gents.

The Jezabels - Easy To Love [OFFICIAL VIDEO] (by TheJezabelsVideos)

I’ve been getting in touch with my character’s first love, and developing the idea that it’s possible to love someone very deeply, be willing to jump in front of a bullet, and still know deep down that you’re only there for a season. It carries a bittersweet note to it. This person only carries what she needs for a time, and likewise she carries what he needs for a moment, but they’ll forever have this special kind of something that lingers between family, friend, and other.

Uke|Affairs Cover: Evergreen Love by Misty Miller (by BrittaKirk)

Thought I’d break up the writing tales and post one of my vintage ukulele covers. I was thrilled to discover Misty Miller, and some other artists who really elevate the ukulele into an art form!
