"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!)
Unless otherwise noted, all writings, videos, photographs, and music are my original work.
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…

"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."
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.
