Poems Of Power – A Poetry Link-Up

Last Monday I threw out the idea for a weekly poetry link-up where you write a poem based on a line from another blogger’s work. I can’t speak for everyone, but I often find inspiration in some of the fantastic pieces here on WordPress and I know we have all probably had that moment where you read something and find yourself thinking ‘I really wish I was the one who’d written that.’ So once again I’m inviting you to go onto your reader, hunt through the poetry tag, and find a line that sparks inspiration in you. Make sure to credit the original writer in your post and revel in the wonder that is the fantastic mass of poetry at our fingertips. For me this week, it’s the following line that’s caught my eye. Viaducts were built by the conquerors Auf Wiedersehen by cirque de la nuit Please make sure to check out the poem it came from in full, it’s a fantastic piece that I fell in love with immediately.

I’ve Broken My Own Writing Rules. Again! #WeekendCoffeeShare

It’s Sunday morning afternoon, and I’m trying to keep a close eye on the weather outside because we’re meant to be having an afternoon of rain and there’s washing on the line. Actually, we’re meant to be having an entire August of rain here in the UK.

I started a new job on the 17th August and it feels like I settling in okay, my writing has been on the upturn, and things around the house seem to be on an even keel. There’s just one thing bugging me, and that’s the fact I’m breaking my own rule when it comes to writing. I’ve …

If We Were Having Coffee

If we were having coffee, well I suppose I’d have to apologise for being late this week. I know it’s a weekend coffee share and I can show up when I want, but I’m also British and feel the need to apologise in most situations, but anyway. This week I have finally got back to my studies and cracked open the books to get on with the next chunk of my AAT Accounting qualification. We’re already in the eighth month of the year and I want to have it tidied away come Christmas so I need to get going if I’m going to meet that deadline. I’ve finished the manual book-keeping section and moved onto the computerised bit so now I just need to keep up the momentum and get this module finished by the end of the month. In more creative news, this weekend has been a fairly good one for writing. I got a little more of Darkened Daughter Shadow Dawn redrafted. [I’ve actually forgotten if I decided on Dawn Shadows or Shadow …
