The Poetry Competition – And The Winner Is ???

 The randomly picked winner of the poetry competition is? 

**** Bea of http://beasbooknook.blogspot.com/ and @BeaCharmed****

Bea is currently thinking about what she would like me to write… I think this could be a fun challenge as I’ve not written poetry ‘on spec’ before. :-)

If  you did not win this time then my commiserations, but who knows? I may find another excuse to do something similar at a later date…

 

Poetry Without Words: Emoti-poetry, The Literary Wave of the Future!

Haiku is a beautiful art form. At its best it is profound, moving, and evocative. All this is achieved with an artful economy of words. But does it go far enough? Is it not simply an expression of yearning; for a higher, purer, more quintessential expression of the poetic art?

The wait for the Transcendent Form is now over! The Muse has come, and a new genre of poetry is born!

I present to you, for your delectation, the world-wide debut of:

Emoti-Poetry: Poetry Without Words.

The Versatile Blogger Award

 

The Versatile Blogger Award.

My obvious greatness has been proven by be me having just been accorded another prestigious award where I had to share with the world some staggeringly interesting facts about yours truly. To be graced with a second accolade so quickly seems entirely appropriate. It gives me the opportunity to share some absolutely true, and previously top secret things about myself which you may have suspected, but been unable to confirm. Today, the rumours will be quelled, and the truth shall be revealed! Continue reading

Seriously Cute Blogger Award

Ah, my first award :) No money, illicit favours or other nefarious activities were undertaken to secure this honour, honestly ;). Instead it was in a rare, and wonderfully heady state of giddy girlish delusion that Angela Addams did consider me worthy to receive this accolade (if you know Angela you will know that neither giddy nor girlish are her usual state-of-mind). Still once given, this award cannot be revoked. It is mine, Mine, MINE I SAY…. HahahahahHAHAHAHA!!!! Continue reading

The Bodacious Bloomers: An Award for Writers and Bloggers.

Recently I discovered that there was such a thing as a blog award when I was kindly nominated for ‘The Cute Blogger Award’ by Angela Addams (which I shall accept officially in a future post). There are other ones, but generally they celebrate achievements like being a ‘Versatile Blogger’, or reaching targets and goals like the ‘CampNaNoWriMo’ awards. Some awards cater for the cooler, darker side of the web, like the ‘Minions of Misery‘ award.

This is all wonderful, and encourages writers to reach for the stars, surpass themselves, and achieve the seemingly impossible. Then they get to brag about it to all their writing mates, whispering, “Nah, Nah!, I’m better than you…loooserrrrs!” behind their backs, but what about the looooserrrs? Is there nothing for them?
