Not a Word ~ Haiku ~Limericks

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


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.


  1. Well, you did get a haiku written. :))

    Looking forward to reading people's entries for the Did I Notice Your Book blogfest. Neat idea.

  2. LoL, nice haiku! I hope the chores are done so you get to write this week!

  3. That is such a Monday haiku!! LOL! Take care

  4. I didn't write much, but I did write. Today was the first I've heard about this blogfest. Sounds very cool :)

  5. I haven't been writing, but I am waiting on my critique partners, so good excuse.
    Thanks for mentioning our blogfest!

  6. I've started writing again and need to start getting sections off to my editor. Just started a new job last month and its really cramping my style.

  7. The only writing is for blog posts or blogfests. I'm looking to my two month blog break during Nov and Dec.

    Cool limricks.


  8. I love those limericks, and they are both so true :)

  9. Your wrote a haiku which is better than my excuses for inactivity.

  10. Hey Madeleine,
    Yes, I'm here so you can relax now! :)
    Oh, I'm loving those limericks on dining out.
    I'd better not put up my limerick about dining out....it goes something like this...
    There was a young fella' named Skinner
    Who took a young lady to dinner
    Take care and happy writing.
    Gary :)

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

    Love the haiku and limericks!

  12. I love the two limericks. Glad to see them back :)

  13. At least you can say that this week already has 2 limericks and a haiku to your writing credit...
    Love the limericks!

  14. Lovely Haiku. Yes, life and chores have an annoying way of getting in the way of writing.

  15. Bless you all for your lovely comments. I'll catch up with you later. Hugs x

  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?
