Tessa’s Haiku # 2 – November 9, 2017


 

So I let my mind wander and it envisioned a white doctor’s coat. Care to join me? Just leave yours in the message area if you do.

There is no deadline as I write as the feeling strikes me. I even get out of bed and write when the spirit moves me. My only requirement is that it deals with a train somewhere. I may write more than one a day or skip a day or two. Join me if you wish.

One liner Wednesday – back and neck pain – November 8, 2017

7 years ago I went through this same procedure, back and neck pain, pinched nerves and steroid shots.

Tessa’s Haiku # 1 – November 8, 2017


I woke up early today and my mind switched into creative mode as it usually does and though I still have a prompt or two available I decided to start my own.

So I let my mind wander and it envisioned a train coming around the hill. Care to join me? Just leave yours in the message area if you do.

There is no deadline as I write as the feeling strikes me. I even get out of bed and write when the spirit moves me. My only requirement is that it deals with a train somewhere. I may write more than one a day or skip a day or two. Join me if you wish.

the train emerged fast

high up on the hill, then gone

gliding into sight

Surviving NaNoWriMo; a Guide to the Late Starter


There is still hope according to this blog writer.

The Merry Writer

So it’s day two or three, and you haven’t written a single god-damn word.

What do you do;

A) Cry

B) Give Up

C) Cry and then Give Up

OR

D) Follow these Five Tips for Surviving NaNoWriMo when you have no time to spare?

Well, it’s up to you… but I’d try D id you’re really keen on the idea of participating. 1)

First of all, and this one’s on the house, take a deep breath; I get it (every writer does) as we speak it’s nearly day three and I have not written a word. Why? Because I’m moving house, I have two jobs, and I have to keep my family and dogs more or less alive. I’m stressed about one hundred things, but NaNo ain’t one; I can write, of this I’m sure, and it may shock you to learn that I’m equally certain that YOU can…

One liner Wednesday – One Sentence? – November 1, 2017

Why is it that this is called 1 liner Wednesday and everyone it seems like but me, writes more than one line/sentence?

Reblogging


Reblogging a post on reblogging. Something I wasn’t aware of about reblogging photo blogs. I deleted the picture on this one just to see if it was deletable and it was. I also am not allowing comments on this blog. Please discuss on original post.

HarsH ReaLiTy

When you reblog a photo blog or photo blog template it places almost all their photos into your reblog. You then have to go back and remove their content or you are now hosting their photos. Even though I remove the comments from reblogs so people have to visit the original to discuss it, this has still posed a problem for me since I started using WordPress.

I’ve been blogging since 2013, started reblogging people in 2015 – now I do it to share the love and share some posts. I don’t want to host your content, like all of us that reblog we are sharing things we find interest in to our own reader list and Reader.

I am going to start deleting the photos connected to the reblog even if it leaves an ugly black box. This will probably decrease the amount I reblog, but I’ve decided against…
