My name is Ayla, but you can call me “Ay.” I grew up in the middle of rural Illinois, surrounded by cats, cornfields, and bright blue skies, raised on science fiction paperbacks, History Channel documentaries, and a healthy dose of dinnertime story-telling. I left my barnyard pond to graduate college three years later with a degree in Communication.

Here you’ll find one of my favorite ways to communicate: writing. I’ve waxed poetic since 6th grade, but didn’t complete NaNoWriMo until 2012. You’ll find me jumping into Twitter micropoetry challenges and #vss (very short stories), writing a poem-a-day in April, or pondering life, the universe, and everything by verse or conversation. My greatest joy is connection, and words are my favorite medium. I hope you find something here that resonates with you.

  1. Hi Ay,
    My name is Mark.
    I saw your Tweet about one of my favorite articles ‘The Small Happy Life’.
    I was hearing from my readers that they wanted some more practical steps to take to encourage happiness so I went ahead and created this post: http://wp.me/p6bNAS-1P
    If you have time I’d love for you to check it out. If you like it, it would be awesome if you’d consider sharing it.
