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...

Writerly Doldrums Haiku

Life has somewhat taken over recently...

I've been busy sorting out a few things work wise.

Hubby's been  laid up with a badly sprained ankle.

The cat needed taking to the vets... 

and I've had no car for a whole week, as it required lots of repairs just when the mechanic took sick... thankfully it's back now.

So writing/blogging has been on the back burner.

I had a story rejection a couple of days ago, which sent me into those inevitable writerly doldrums...

While I try to remember that I must not dwell on the rejections and to take my example from those amazing writing bloggers like Milo who just keep sending out their stories for years until they get accepted, which helps...

and then two days later an email saying that a Flash Fiction piece had been accepted,  so that was a boost!

Writerly Doldrums
My masterpiece rejected
I must not give up!

Waiting for my muse
I'm in a short story slump
Need a writing boost

Feeling somewhat low
I need some blogging solace
Thank you, one and all

How about you?
