About Me

My Photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

August Goals

Has anyone made any goals for August in terms of their writing? 

My goals are to continue not to spread myself as thinly as I have been, while I concentrate on getting through the next few months with family stuff and then there will be time to return to writing and blogging properly in due course.

Until then, I read, knit, crochet and visit my ailing parents.

Voice and Genre

I picked up this novel Murder Most Unladylike by Robin Stevens, when browsing the local bookstore and read the first page to see if it was something that was worth purchasing. I was hooked and decided to buy a copy.

I'm only just getting into it and so far I am enjoying this teen novel with its age and genre appropriate voice; that of a young girl confiding her exploits to the reader, as though she were reporting it in her diary or a letter.

Excellent! 



I just read that she completed the first draft as a Nanowrimo in 2011!! Impressive.

Sharing Through Authorship

They say 'Write what you know', which makes me think about the book I have recently been listening to, the audio version of 
At Knit's End by Stephanie Pearl -McPhee. 

As a fellow knitter and having become quite addicted, I can relate to so many things she says about being an avid knitter. 

However, there are some things I can only marvel at and others that make me feel glad that I now know that I'm not the only one who thinks or does whatever she has described. 

So if you ever doubt that what you are writing might not be worth the effort, I would suggest that you think of your potential readership and all the the shared gems and joys your writing may bring.

Sabbatical

I am away from my blog for a while 

searching for my muse. 

In the meantime, if you happen to find it, 
please give it some encouragement, 
and then some 
Pulitzer ,
Costa, 
Guardian, 
Gold Dagger 
or any other prize-winning tips
and then return it to me.
Thank you

HAPPY EASTER 2014 ~ haiku

A cross or an egg
His sacrifice and re-birth
For our redemption

Bank Holiday fun
Chocolate egg-shaped cheer
Its true meaning foiled

Spring is in the air with glorious bird song, sunshine and crisp dry days.


Keep writing...

Unbelieveable! ~ A Song of Lunch

Many of you may remember my post entitled Did you see this?
about a BBC UK production of the amazingly brilliant poem / play entitled
 'A Song of Lunch' 
starring Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson. 

When I looked it up as a DVD purchase I discovered that it is only available as a US import!
I emailed the BBC shop and they effectively replied: 

Can't help you!...  

My response: Unbelievable!


Have you read A Song of Lunch by Christopher Reid?
