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...

W1S1 March and IWSG

So did I achieve my  Write1Sub1, goal for March?
Sadly my vignette submitted earlier this year wasn't accepted
and a longer short story is still waiting for a decision...

But, Yes I submitted to an on-line flash fiction competition in which I had to write a 250 word story and it was accepted Yeah!



I'm combining this with IWSG (hosted by Alex J Cavanaughto say that I'm coping with my insecurities by telling myself: 

It will happen. It will take time. 

I'm getting there one step at a time.

I've been through the whole gamut of emotions about people's reactions to my writing over the past 3 yrs and feel I have settled in a better place now. I realise how to handle it better. I did get some really nasty criticism which was very personal when I joined a forum that rated each others' writing. I decided it wasn't for me as the members seemed vindictive and hugely competitive and so I decided to try Blogging. I have had much better feedback and support, which has helped my writing mature enormously, so thank you everyone.

So how about you?

BTW Don't forget the Plotting Blogfest. Have you signed up? It's great for your P word.
I'm actually still on a blog break at the moment. I'm trying to get some non-writing things done that have been haunting me for literally years. I've filled so many rubbish bags I've been worried I'd get charged by the council LOL!  Happy A-Zing.
