Welcome to Annie’s Texas Musings

This is a site for me to share a little bit of everything. Some of the content will have a Texas flare. Since I am a very eclectic blogger, there is no one theme for this site. My basic Muse is Music, therefore, every blog may have a comment about the music I was listening to during the writing, or music that was my inspiration. Annie’s Texas Musings is a work in progress and so am I. The more I write, the more I discover and uncover about my self and my life as a Texan, the more things will change. Follow me on Twitter Annie @txstarkeeper.

I am currently moving all the posts I have done over a two year period to this site due to posting issues with my original Annie’s Texas Musings site.  This is a work in progress and original posting dates will be added to the bottom of each piece I post. Each piece is copyright protected.

A Little About Me

One of my passions is writing: poetry, micro poetry, flash fiction. Micropoetry containes 140 charaters or less to allow a Twitter post. I find this a challenge to be able to create a poem in just a few words. Below is an example.

Momma said ~ be strong ~ independent ~ and loving ~ always a Southern Lady first ~ but there will be times ~ even a Lady just has to ~ CUSS

I also have an ebook available that is being published in installments.  Here is the information about the first installment.

Stars Fell Down by Annie

My very first ebook publication: Stars Fell Down by Annie
Look for it on – Kindle Store.

Yes…I know, where is the next installment? It is coming as soon as I figure out (Texas term for decide) what to do with a character that just will not behave. I am not a violent person, but killing a character off this early in a book just does not sit well with me!

So, sit back, grab a cup of coffee and take a few minutes to read what has been on my mind today or yesterday!

Update – November 30, 2015

An Echo in Time:  Poetry Across the Ages by Annie

My first poetry chapbook is currently available for Kindle – It will soon be available in print form with some bonuses not included in the Kindle book.

Both formats are available on

Since I began this website, I have become the Contributing Editor for Downtown LA Life. This is along running international online magazine which I am honored to be a part of each month. I have a section for short stories and poetry as well as a food column called Kitchen Poetry. Both may be found at

Look for a cookbook by the end of 2016 from this column … at least that is my plan!

Update – December 29, 2015

I am a bit late in this update. For me, time has a mind of its own these days and before I know it the day is gone without anything planned for the day getting accomplished … so, I begin a new day and hope to get a bit more done!

Not long after the November update, I published a small book of short stories that were featured monthly since I began writing for Downtown LA Life in late 2014. This has been such a wonderful adventure and an amazing community of artists to be included with each month and a place for me to share my writing.

Below is my short story book which can be found at in both paperback and Kindle format. It is my plan to publish a volume of my short stories each year after they have been published … so about this time next year there will be another small short story book. At some point, I will publish a volume of the poems posted each month as well … perhaps when the next short story volume is completed toward the end of 2016.
