Hi, I’m Cody McCullough and I enjoy writing. Well, most of the time anyway. This blog began as The Past, Present, and Future: A Compilation of Poetry. Now, though, it is my monthly writing blog. It’s a place for me to share some of my work and to discuss my writing process. Oh, I suppose you want to know about me as well. Mostly, I’m just a neurotic mess wondering if anyone out there likes my work. If you do, please let me know. It may just spare me from another sleepless night.

  1. Hi Cody, thank you for stopping by my blog, following it and liking my posts. Glad to be connected with you!

    1. Your Blood Angel series sounds like an enjoyable read. I’m glad that you are enjoying my poetry. It always makes me feel good when people say they like my poetry.

    1. I’m glad you like my blog, and think it is beautiful. I was just reading today about how everyone has a desire, and need, to feel important. I immediately identified this blog as one of my avenues to that end. That being the case, I would like to say thank you for making me feel important.

  2. Cody, Thank you for taking the time to check out one of my blog posts. This was practice for a business blog I plan and I had fun reliving that first European trip. I admire anyone that writes poetry; it was sometimes difficult in college to see what others saw and when I thought about writing poetry I anticipated the pain it would entail. Am I wrong?

    1. Thank you for your comment. When it comes to poetry, I can honestly say that I never put much thought into it. When I became a teacher, one of my first assignments was to teach a poetry class. Needless to say, I spent a lot of time learning about poetry as a result of that class. Over time, I grew to love poetry. Eventually, I decided that I should try writing poetry too. With regard to pain, it all depends on the writer. Pain may not be your thing, but you’ll never know unless you give it a try. I’m actually writing a new collection of poetry now that focuses on positive themes. When it comes to writing, you’re the one who is in charge. Unless you get an editor. Then it’s all over….

    1. Thank you very much. I’ve been contemplating adding an awards page. I suppose it is about time I took that off the back burner.

    1. Thank you very much. I’m very honored. For some time now, I’ve been meaning to put together an awards page. The longer I put it off, the more daunting the task becomes. I suppose I should stop dragging my feet. Of course, in many ways that is what I am best at…. Thank you for the comment.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog too. Truthfully, I’m not much of an expert when it comes to publishing. Soon I’ll be looking for a publisher for my book, but until then I’ll be on the hunt as well.

    1. Thank you for the encouragement, and for following my blog. I’ve been working on my book a lot lately, and haven’t had much time for this blog. The day is nearing, though, when I’ll publish my “lost” posts….

  3. Your project – so simple, a perfect writing exercise I wish I had thought of…What will you do next? Have you thought about it? Are you inspired to continue with an annual goal themed blog?

    I am most curious so please tell me as soon as you know.


    You have inspired me today.


    1. I’m glad that I was able to inspire you. With regard to what I will do next, well, there are a few things that I have been working on. Check back on February 3rd to find out what I have been up to.

  4. Superb work and poem collection !
    I gladly read them and try to deeply delve into the concepts.Hope one day you see them published !!!
    Doda , ((( hugs ))) and ♥♥♥

    1. I appreciate your support, and I’m glad that you like my poems. I have a feeling that I’ll have some work published before the end of the year. If that doesn’t happen, though, I’ll still be content. My main focus is bringing my poetry, and writing, to life. Everything after that is out of my control. Thank you for your kind words.

  5. Nice to meet you, Cody!
    I love your poem “Lost in Time”…very philosophical.
    We are all wandering through time together, searching for a way to get home to the place we never left. 😉

    1. I’m glad that you like my “Lost in Time” poem. In many ways, it bridges the gap between my early poetry and my present poetry. If your comment is any indication, I’m on the right track. Thank you for visiting my blog, and reading my poetry. I appreciate it very much.

    1. You’re welcome. Thank you for returning the favor and stopping by my blog. I hope that you like what you read here.

  6. Thank you for stopping by Claudias Welt ab 50 (Claudia’s World over 50),I really appreciated that! And thank you that I found your Blog!

    1. You’re welcome. I do like to find interesting blogs. Thank you for stopping by my blog too. I hope you like what you read.

  7. Hi Cody! It’s nice to meet you. You have a nice blog. Thanks for the “Like”. I hope you’ll visit my blog and stay long enough to read one of my stories. I’d really like your opinion on my writing. 😉

    1. So true. Without the reader, though, poetry would just be an unopened present waiting for the day… That being the case, I believe that I need to thank you for reading my work. Thank you very much!

  8. Your WordPress notification is linked to a website that no longer exists. It makes it difficult to visit your site. I’d want to know this if I were you. I tried to Tweet to you, but I figured you’d never see it. Thanks for the likes!
