In Need of Prompts

Now JusJoJan has finished I need some more prompts! I use the WordPress Daily Prompt and Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge on a Monday. I could do with another for each day. Anyone know of any good ones?

New Reader – no Readers!

The new reader? Well I have to admit - I quite like it. It looks very clean and modern. I don't like all the changes WordPress have made lately but I like this one. However - has it got anything to do with the fact that no-one is reading my blog today!

NaPoWriMo, Poem a Day Challenge, Poetry


So having conquered NaNoWriMo last year and done a poem a day for a whole year previous to that I have now signed up for National Poem Writing Month - 30 poems in 30 days. How hard can it be? Gulp! Just two kids to look after as well as a mounting work load -… Continue reading NaPoWriMo!!!!!

About – (blogging101 – day #5)

So I have added a text widget with the updated version of my about page on - a paragraph I hope will draw people in to read the fuller page. In doing this I have also changed back my theme to an earlier one and swapped about the widgets. Most importantly I have removed the… Continue reading About – (blogging101 – day #5)

A whole Year of Poetry – Done!

So that's it! I am done - finished. A whole year of poetry, one per day - posted. 99% were new a couple were old ones re edited. The point was that it forced me to be in creative mode every day.

The End is Nigh

It’s not a doom laden message. In fact a small celebration. I am getting close to the end of my poem a day for a year challenge! To be honest - it's already done. I had a bad night a few weeks ago, couldn’t sleep, all the small niggles of life piling up on me… Continue reading The End is Nigh
