Getting Creative with The New Royalty

Guess what? We got to play with words again today but in a different way. Today’s challenge is to get creative with Blackout Poetry. Until today, I had never tried this, other than highlighting college textboks, but somehow I don’t think that counts. Blackout poetry is when you get a book,...

Once Upon a Time There Was Silence

World Mental Health Day

Today is World Mental Health Day. I learned this from the subscription email I received this morning from OctPoWriMo. You can read the post here.   I have a niece who has anxiety attacks. These are debilitating to her when they happen. Her best friend suffers from OCD and Mysophobia (commonly...

A Poem A Day for 31 Days

My friend CJ, whom I reference often, has decided to do a challenge: write 31 poems in 31 days. It’s called OctPoWriMo. She tweeted me and thought I’d be interested, but I really thought it would be too much for me to do this month. October is terribly busy with kids...
