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...

Why I Write Blogfest


Writing is very much in my blood. My mother was a Librarian, my Dad a Clergyman and Teacher who wrote great sermons. I have always been drawn to this medium ever since I could put pen to paper. I used to write letters and stories, poems and make my own books from the age of 5 yrs old.

I write because I love composing delicious pieces of prose.
I like the reaction I get when I move someone to cry or laugh or feel angry on a character's behalf.

I like how the writing appears on the page hence my websites, my blog and the magazine and book I produced.


I write because it is cathartic and helps me see things in a different perspective. I can play around with our rich language.

Why do I write?  Because I love it!

Most recently I enjoy writing haiku 

and Limericks for Madeleine Kane's Blog prompt.

A woman was playing with fire
When her foot was then caught in a tyre
She screamed for some help
Though none heard her yelp
As her body became flame and then pyre

Why do you write?
