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...

Write1 Sub 1 weekly check in

Okay so it's not been the best week writing-wise, though I've not had any rejections, so that's got to be a good thing, right?


I've been feeling flu-ish and lack-a-daisical and while I've felt inspired to write short snippets and scheduled blog posts, the stories themselves just haven't really taken shape enough to submit.

So this week I decided to post off some poems to a magazine, instead.

 I also wrote an enquiry to a magazine that the lovely Ellie told me about called Scribble which seems appropriate for me. This time next week I shall be in Bournemouth on a Writing Workshop. I just hope Della Galton can whip me into shape to get those stories published.

Here's hoping your week has been productive / satisfying.
I'm off to finish the ironing next.

As it is wet and windy outside I'll leave you with this anecdote:

On holiday a couple of years ago I was waiting in the queue at WHSmith to pay for my note book when my umbrella slipped sideways under my arm.
To my horror I realised I had managed to 'goose' the customer waiting in front of me and to my utter mortification realised it was also a man!  I gasped a horrified apology, my cheeks burning. He seemed to notice my embarrassment and said: "And I thought it was my lucky day!"
