About Me

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...

Leaping into 2012 Haiku

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
It's going to be a leap year.
I'm facinated by those born on 29th February and what it must be like.
I'd like to thank my lovely husband for all his invaluable support over the past year.

To round off 2011, I had 2 pieces of wonderful news.

First, Scifihaiku have accepted 4 of my haiku for their 2013 publication/ website. Yes they are searching that far in advance!
I'm delighted, though having to wait that long will be a challenge.

It's an illustrated quarterly magazine that publishes scifaiku, haibun, senryu and tanka plus articles about these and other poetic art forms.
Do check it out.


These ones didn't make the grade, so I can share them with you:

When dogged by Pluto
All the planets join forces
Celestial Clique

They live among us
The stereotypes abound
Alien Features?

Second, I won an unexpected blog prize at Maria Zannini's DIY Christmas blog with Carina Press: Rulebreaker, plus some smoked salmon!

Meanwhile poor hubster (mentioned above) has a bad cold and throat. It makes me ill just thinking about it!

I hope your New Year starts off with a happy buzz too.
Will you be celebrating or treating it like any other day?
