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...

Origins Blogfest & Limericks

You can see my RFW entry here
Hosted by DLHammons. On Monday, February 13th, you should post your own origin story.  Tell us where your writing dreams began.  It could be anything from how you started making up stories as a child, or writing for the school newspaper, or even what prompted you to start a blog. How about the first time somebody took an interest in your writing, or the teacher/mentor that helped nudge you along and mold your passion, or maybe the singular moment when you first started calling yourself a writer? 
It all started somewhere and we want you to tell us your own, unique, beginnings.

I could sum the origins of how I started making up stories as:
I spent a lot of my formative years creating stuff that my mother would Xerox for me to keep me happy while she worked. I took to letter writing...

...And produced my own books of stories and practical guides on pet keeping,
as I was a gerbil expert(!) and adored dogs and cats...
...and I excelled at English Language at school, which was very encouraging.
One of my stories was even read out as the best example by my teacher in 1979.
though regretfully I do not have a copy of it...

I always knew I'd be an author, though huge inhibitions and self doubts formed barriers to this fulfilment until recently when I decided to rekindle my passion and see where it took me

and with your help I just may even suceed.
Thank you!

MY LATEST LIMERICKS from Ms.Kane's first line prompt

A bimbo who ran a campaign
To save all the forests from rain
Clucked like an old hen
When accosted by men
Jeering “Hey, me Tarzan, you Jane!”

A fellow who ran a campaign
To ensure he could spot every train
Took his anorak and flask
So that, should it steam past
He could take down the numbers, again.
