  1. Good morning (well, it is in England). I’ve forgotten the cake & jelly (& it’s too early for wine) but I’ve brought a poem:


    I write both poetry & short stories (& the occasional song). Hoping to pick up some more Followers (current target is 200 of them) & also to find some interesting fiction sites to follow.

    My writing tends to be rather emotional. Sometimes in a romantic, loving way & sometimes in more of a dark way. This reflects the year I had, with my ex-wife denying me contact with my daughter for over 10 months (hence the more negative emotive pieces…thankfully I eventually beat her in Court & got my daughter back but it was painful) but also with meeting the love of my life & getting engaged (her name’s Phoebe & she’s lovely). Some of my more negative emotive writing also draws from previously being trapped in an abusive relationship for years. Much happier nowadays.

    Next year is hopefully going to be more of the positive & less of the negative (getting married then). Interested to see what impact this has on my writing.

  5. With my intro post I mentioned I write both positive & negative emotive pieces. As I opened with a love poem, thought I’d follow it up with a “And now for something completely different” (love Monty Python) moment…a dark murder mystery short story. See https://philipcraddockwriter.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/smoke-and-mirrors/.

    Some people who read it said they found the protagonist to be really endearing. Others said he’s a monster. It may depend on whether you choose to interpret him as the killer or the victim.

    As an aspect of my dyspraxia is having a patchy/unreliable/malfunctioning memory, memory loss and memory in general are recurring themes in my writing. This feeds into this short story.

  6. Great party, Jackie! I had a huge laugh reading the joke though the case really puzzled me. I wonder if the code is a phone number or the code to a safe box.
    Anyway, hailing from the suburb of Salt Lake City, good morning and this is the link to my blog: This is Another Story.

  9. Hello, Jacqui and thank you for the invitation. It has been an interesting and eventful year and it skipped by quite quickly. This is my most recent post, Poppet.


    It was the highlight of my work day on Friday, at a Russian university. The other highlight was forgetting a small bag with souvenir purchases at Starbucks. I was too excited to try out the maple something latte. ‘Twas yummy. Have a great weekend, guys and dolls.

I was looking at your blog page, and hope to read more of your blog post, the link you sent us, I finished reading it, and enjoyed it. good content.

  11. Hi there! Just done the reblog. Did it to drag first-timers with me. I am one. Thanks for the invitation. I am from the Philippines. My blog has been a year old but active only for the past five months. I guess, I could no longer stop writing. My blog is more about inward journeys. So you may opt to read my latest post when you are alone and about to sleep. I write poems too but it’s more on the freestyle. I do not like rules in expressing my thoughts.


    Just happy to be here. Wishing everyone well!

    At my blog, you will find thoughts, mostly poems, about what’s going on in my life through the views of the various roles I assume in any given moment: mom of twins, wife, daughter, friend, manager, woman, spiritual seeker.

  14. Hi Jacqueline! I just wanted to say thank you for hosting another awesome blog party! πŸ™‚ You rock!

    I would also like to wish all the amazing bloggers in attendance a very happy Saturday. πŸ™‚ I’m hoping to visit a few blogs before the day is over. πŸ™‚ I love discovering new blogs and connecting with my fellow bloggers. I host a poetry blog where I write about whatever comes to mind. I only post once a week, preferring to free up some time to read the wonderful blogs in my community. Beneath is a poem that I wrote to celebrate World Peace Day.

  17. Hello, this is my first time joining the party! Looks like fun. Just working my way around looking at all the people on here. I see some of the times on the comments. It’s only 12:30 p.m. here, so hopefully I am not too late.

    I have loved writing poems since I was a child. I am not a professional at all, I just do it for fun for myself and family & friends. I did write a poem a few years ago when I started this blog as an assignment. I realize it’s probably not that great, but it was from my heart on my feelings
    about animals. Here is the link to the poem: https://animalsarefeelingbeingstoo.com/2014/07/19/animals-are-feeling-beings-too/#more-303

    I’m sure you figured out from my title, “Animals Are Feeling Beings Too”, my blog is about animals. My passion is helping abused animals. I am not a radical person that believes in violence towards those hurting animals. I just want to get the word out about what others can do to help, to open their eyes to the truth about what is going on possibly right in your own neighborhood to the dog next door or the elephant at your local festival, and to fight for more laws to protect animals. I believe animals should be treated as God intended. I have other things on my blog such as vegetarian recipes, Tuesday Tales, and pet care tips. I am pretty new so I am still learning and trying to connect with others.

    Here is the link to my blog: https://animalsarefeelingbeingstoo.com/

    I am looking forward to meeting some fellow bloggers through this party! October is such a great month! Fall is so beautiful!

  18. Jackie, what a wonderful party. Sorry, I could not come for the hot breakfast. Was really hungry, so made the short trip to the kitchen. One thing led to another and here I am, few hours late. Trying to savor as many flavors as I can, but impossible to digest such a rich offering. Need to have a late afternoon siesta before attending a dinner invitation. Plan to return tomorrow.

    here is a shortlink to a poem I wrote just a few minutes back : http://wp.me/p73yZZ-2vM
