JUNE IS BLOOMING!

Decided to change the appearance of my blog with this new theme, new for me that is.

2014 ORANGE POPPIES
2014 ORANGE POPPIES

I used a photo of coreopsis blooms from last year’s perennial garden. I am looking forward to more of these pretty flowers again this year. For now, these orange poppies are a highlight in the perennial garden!

The weather has been picture perfect for a few days now. There is so much more outdoor activity going on with lawns and gardens and just plain old walking in the neighbourhood. Wonderful days!

Meanwhile, I having been trying to work on a special blog post for next week as part of a virtual blog tour about writing.

I was invited to participate in this event by a poet, Pamela Smyk Cleary, who I met through an online poetry prompt site. If you want to know more about this poet and the blog tour, you can visit the link at http://wanponpopix.blogspot.ca/2014/06/the-writers-blog-tour-my-writing-process.html.

Time for me to go to vote here in Ontario. Back next week with that virtual blog tour post!

Have a great weekend!

 

 

2013 SHORT STORY MONTH!

Just a quick post here to celebrate Short Story Month!

2013 SPRING--MAY SKY!
2013 SPRING–MAY SKY!

Brian Henry’s Quick Brown Fox  is one of my favourite websites to follow. Brian Henry has a connection with all things writing from editing to workshops to teaching at Ryerson University.

Most especially, Brian provides a wealth of information for writers at his Quick Brown Fox site with current links, postings of written works such as this story, and sharing of correspondence from aspiring writers who have found recent success with an acceptance or publication of their writing.

Today’s posting of a short story is one of the reasons why I chose to follow the site.

Mistress Maggie , written by Carol Roots, contains all the elements of an entertaining brief fiction read–interesting characters, setting and, of course, the quintessential short story ending. 

For a quick spring read, I recommend this story and, for ongoing updates in writing, check out this site, frequently!

Best to all on this special weekend!
