NANOWRIMO and Haiku Poetry


I recently mentioned to an editor that I didn’t expect to enter this year. I was simply not in the mood to write stories. Although I am writing daily Haiku’s.

To my surprise she said she saw no reason why I couldn’t write a book of Haiku’s. So I have thought about it and maybe I will take my Haiku’s and put them together as a possible book. 50,000 words  in that form would be harder to accomplish, but even if I didn’t hit the goal, I would have a good size manuscript of poems. I also write Shadormas and a few other types.

I don’t really know how to set something like that up, but November is just to get a rough copy any how so maybe it doesn’t matter for now and I will spend time after it is over perfecting it. Poetry books are fairly popular.

Cooking With Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – By Adrienne Dellwo


When you have fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, cooking poses a lot of challenges—standing in the kitchen can cause pain and wear you out; problems with short-term memory and multi-tasking make it hard to follow the steps of even a simple recipe; and it’s easy to get frustrated and overwhelmed with the whole process.

It can be tempting to avoid it altogether, but that’s not realistic for most of us. Sick or not, we have to eat. Because many of us with these conditions need a specially tailored diet, or at least feel better when we eat healthier, cooking is essential.

Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to simplify cooking and ease its strain on your body.
