My Quotes

Quote Left As a fiction writer, I allow jerks to think they have the last word. Eventually, aspects of their vapid personalities are sprinkled into my work... my villains sound more true to life, thanks to them. I have deep gratitude to the petty, mean and ugly people I've met. They have allowed me to develop petty, mean and ugly antagonists. I get the last word in every story I write and have published. Success always speaks louder than angry babble. Quote Right

Quote Left Sentiment is NOT a synonym for poetry; though a short piece of writing may tug at the heart, poetry requires figurative language, ambiguity, wordplay or a unique perspective of the very familiar. Quote Right

Quote Left The difference between a poet and a published poet is just one revision. A single word can change an entire verse. Never discourage any poet who says, 'I want to do better.' Telling a poet to stay status quo is to tell them to stop growing. It is sabotage. Quote Right

Quote Left Careful, there. If you cheese off a fiction writer, she just may immortalize you. And then you'd be a jerk for all time. Quote Right

Bloggers Photo

Cyndi MacMillan poetry has been published in The Fieldstone Review, Issue 2015 http://www.fieldstonereview.usask.ca/article.php?article=167, Grain Magazine, issue 42.4, Summer 2015, Passed Signs/New Fields  http://www.grainmagazine.ca/current-issue/  , The Steel Chisel, April 2016, http://www.thesteelchisel.ca/april2016_07.html.  She has poems forthcoming in ROOM and the Centrifugal Eye. She participated in the 20 Poem Challenge at The Ekphrastic Review: Writing and Art on Art and Writing, and twelve of her poems have been published by the journal.http://www.ekphrastic.net/apps/search?q=Cyndi+MacMillan.

Her fiction has appeared in local newspapers and has won contests. Her short story, Missed Steps, is forthcoming in the Windsor Review. She enjoys reading literary journals, and she is actively pursuing further publication within their glossy covers.

Verse is both magnetic and kinetic. She attempts - madly- to give equal attention to her poetry, short stories, and a novel-in-progress, the Trim of Wicks.  Regardless of genre, she focuses on language. One word has the power to repel or pull. She never forgets the reader and does her best to make their ride interesting.

Poetry soup is a friendly forum which enables people from around the world to share their writing. It has some great resources and provides a nice space for people to connect.

Cyndi lives in a small town in Ontario with her husband, young daughter and far too many books.
