Scream: Poem

woman-3802311_1280

Deep down there is a well bubbling,

it is threatening to overflow.

Whirling round and round picking up more strength

at it goes.

My mind can hardly contain my angst,

my lungs aching as a scream bursts from my body,

the echo of which can be heard around the world.

And I would give the world for

silence, peace and serenity.

Silence, peace and serenity.

I like the sound of that.

 

 

 

Until next time,

Happy writing, S

Write Away: Poem

 

happy-new-year-1063797__340

To write is to express

To write is to shine a light on all that is unseen

Or misunderstood

To give hope

To illuminate all that is hidden

Within you

To write is to bring joy

Forever more!

 

Thank you everyone for your continued support during 2018 and before that. All your likes and comments are gratefully received and appreciated.

May 2019 bring you everything you could possibly want and more…

Happy New Year!

See you on the other side!

Calling all Fiction Writers!

cat-3842408_640

I came across this in Writers’ Forum magazine (Dec 2018). A novel-writing competition, sponsored by Your Cat magazine. The first prize is a three-book deal. The genres can be romance, fantasy, historical, thriller or a Christmas story! But get this, there has to be a cat in your story! Yes, you have read right, be sure your novel features a feline to qualify for the competition!

The competition is open to new writers only (unpublished), however your manuscript must be assessed by an editorial service first.

The deadline for this competition is 28 February 2019! Not a great deal of time, would obviously suit someone whose manuscript is READY!

More details can be obtained here: https://www.choc-lit.com/

All the best of luck!
