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...

Not a Word ~ Haiku ~Limericks

Not a word have I
Written or composed last week
Life and chores prevail


freedigitalimages.net

How about you?


Here's some Limericks on Dining Out:

The waitress, when prompted to say:
“Is everything to your liking - Okay?”
You politely assent
That you’re feeling content
But you wish you could growl “Go away!”
A pub lunch or rest’rant meal
Can be served with incredible zeal
But when tongues are not licking
As fine bones start pricking
One is left with an unpleasant feel




Oh and check out this Blogfest:
The Ninjas and Knights are joining forces!

Did I Notice Your Book? Blogfest
October 17th 2012

Post about a book you’ve noticed.
You can choose a book that you’ve read,
something you saw on a blog or social media site, Goodreads, or a sales website.
Anything that caught your eye because of a great cover, blurb or reviews, but DON’T tell the author that their book has been noticed. Instead, shout out on social media sites, and encourage others to do the same, until the author finds his/her book. 
Let’s blow up the blogsphere with great new reads!

Only two rules:
1) You can’t post about your own book.
2) The book shouldn’t be on the New York Times or USA Today bestseller list.

This is your chance to shout out about a book that might not have been noticed by others.

  11. I haven't written, either. Though I've been stewing over a possible NaNoWriMo idea.

    Love the haiku and limericks!

  16. I've had weeks like that.

    I'm finishing up a book to get ready for that blogfest.

  17. That first dining out limerick really hits home with me. Why do they always have to ask when my mouth is full or I'm in the middle of a particularly intersting conversation?
