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...

Blog Sabbatical Continues

So what have I been up to?
Well, life here has been disrupted by the fitting of a new downstairs WC. Told it would be a 2 day job it's now rolling into its 4th week...

Not much writing has been happening I'm afraid, as sharing a small study with hubby is not conducive to concentrating on blog posts and creative writing. Still no sign of my published piece in Writing magazine yet, unless I missed it. The thuthpenth!

Does anyone have an April 2012 issue of Writing magazine?

However, I read the sequel to Joanne Harris' Chocolat called The Lollipop Shoes, which I found immensely enjoyable (on the whole) though I couldn't get my head around the idea that while Chocolat seemed to be set in the late 1950's, the sequel was set in modern day with mobile phones and Internet.

Have you read it? What did you think?

As always, while reading about confectionery, I craved some decent chocolate, but the weather was gale force winds up to 70mph and hammering rain, so venturing out wasn't an option. In the end I ate one of hubby's toffees and broke a tooth! Then I recalled being warned not to eat toffees for that very reason. Now I need a crown...

I would like to thank all those who took part in my Giving Voice Blogfest.
I enjoyed reading the varied entries, with their imaginative and thought-provoking scenarios. Congratulations to one and all.

I have decided to extend my blog sabbatical for a couple of months
and hope that you, my lovely supporters, remain as followers, while I'm taking a break, though I'll be visiting you all when I get a spare moment here and there.
Thank you.
