It happened yesterday – this blog crossed the 500 follower mark.  I’d like to thank everyone who’s stopped by to read this blog, liked a post and especially those who’ve found enough here, to click the follow button.

It means a lot to me that there are people who make the time to see what I am up to.  This isn’t one of those world stunningly good blogs, but still a few of you keep looking at what I am doing.

This is one of those weeks where I feel a bit creatively drained.  I don’t have a new poem or any stunning writing to share. It’s been a busy week for me with other things.

One highlight of this week was going to a local poetry group.  They had a featured speaker who read some of his work followed by an open mic session.  I plucked up the courage to put my name on the list and read my poem, I Must Go to the Sea.  There were a lot of readers there with some great poetry so I was a little nervous to read, but I forged ahead.  It’s hard to judge, but I think they liked it.

Editing on the book continues – mostly by others and I’ve started to look at my publishing options.  Well, a tiny bit.  I’ve looked at the cost of Publishing through CreateSpace (Amazon’s self-publishing company) and it’s still an option.  This is a very niche book so finding a publisher isn’t going to be easy.  Likely it will need to be a small press looking for new authors.  Well, the googling will continue as I search around the various options.

That’s it for this week.

Till next time,

  12. Congratulation on crossing your 500th follower. I’m happy for you. Your poem is wonderful and creative – For me I write for myself. If I get some likes and comments I’m fortunate but If I don’t get any I don’t put my mind around why they didn’t and like you forge ahead. Congratulations again.
