Happy Poetry!

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

It is the beginning of 2015 and a time to start a fresh and plan my writing and poetry year! And this is ever more complicated as I am now having to keep a two year diary for bookings! Anyway, one of the keys is to be able to keep writing, I sometimes get far […]

Rejections, Nice Rejections and Acceptance

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

We all get rejections, it is however a harsh thing when you get your first, even worse when you do not hear anything and you are wondering how long you should be waiting, hoping, fearing… They say older poets and researchers tend to get more things published and more grants and funding but when you […]

Finished! And News.

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Yep I have 30 new shiny poems written this month – although they are not all narratives or stories as I had intended, which is the reason I will still be writing until the end of the month! I feel quiet chuffed to be at this point considering it is about half way through the […]

One Week Over

I am rocking the poetry writing now – I am well a head of schedule and beginning to think about how I am going to spend the rest of my poetry allocated time I have a lot of poems to type up, with last months efforts too I now have almost a reporters note book […]

Rhyming Stories

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

I got the bones of a general story introduction poem and the start of Cinderella written last night (after midnight), they are going to take a lot of tweaking to make story and poetry work. My general aim is to work through the fairy tales and legends, I already have a few rhyming stories like […]

WoPoWriMo 2014

Friday, January 31st, 2014

I’m taking part in the WoPo challenge to write a poem a day in February, though I’ll be doing my standard of changing it slightly so that I am spending 30 hrs on poetry stuff instead. I know there are only 28 days in Feb but the 30 hrs suits me really well I’m thinking […]

Done and Dusted

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

I’ve finished the 30 hrs of poetry for this month, and have started thinking about next month. I am hoping to have the Monster Muse Poetry Pack for sale soon, they are on order so and I will probably set up a pint on demand version too. Next month I am thinking about maybe doing […]

Being the Judge

Friday, January 17th, 2014

I am very excited to have been asked to judge the regional part of a national schools poetry competition this year in March. This was a lovely event last year and the children where amazing. I will also once more be running the World Poetry Writing Month challenge in February. This is a month of […]

Happy New Year 2014

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

It’s a poetical new year and I am formulating plans, plans and more plans. This year the Monster Blogs on average are five years old so I am planning on lots of stuff to do with that. Resolution wise – I would like to take part in the poetry writing challenges once more and set […]
