Happy Anniversary to ME!!!!!


FullSizeRender


They say time flies when you’re having fun and I’ve been having so much that my WP anniversary passed me by!

YES!

Last year, on April 18th, I posted my very first blog entry on KittyKatBitsandBobs!

I am kicking myself for not marking the date by doing something special on here… I must think up something über fast and try to post it tomorrow. Bear with!

I have had a simply amazing year here.

I have shared myself entirely here with you guys and gals. You know all about my life, my loves, my peeves, my passions and my faults. I offered you me, warts and all, and, (thank you all so much), you didn’t run away in horror!

I have read articles, stories and poetry that has entertained and inspired me.

I have met fascinating new people and made many new friends, not least of which is my absolute bestie Felicity. Thank you WP!

I have gained new followers and readers and have expanded my audience.

I bravely ventured into the world of erotica writing, which has become my passion.

I have stepped outside my comfort zone by posting #SinfulSunday photographs, which in all honesty has only boosted my self-esteem, thanks to the kind and generous comments I received in response to them.

I have tried out poetry and haiku, which have been well received.

I have enjoyed taking WP courses, and learned so much from them.

I have linked to Tumblr, Pinterest and Twitter and made even more new friends!

I have recently been accepted as a Huffington Post blogger, so watch out for more news on that front!

So far, my blogging experience has been nothing but positive, enriching and rewarding. I am delighted I took that first step last year and plunged in. Anyone reading this today who is toying with the idea of writing or blogging, I say… DO IT! You might surprise yourself with what pours out once you begin typing. I have certainly found that I have learned a  lot about myself this past year. Writing is free therapy… why not have a go?

I want to say a very big, very sincere thank you to everyone to has ever took the time to read anything I have written, whether it was my rants, my silly ideas, my filth or my verse… and if you took time to comment? even more gratitude flows in your direction!

I am excited to see what this second year of blogging brings. I am sure it is going to be a wonderful adventure. I do hope you will stay with me as I journey into it.

Much love…

Ciao!

One last request… Please do tell me what you would like more of from me… erotica, poetry, serious stuff, silly stuff? I am thinking of including some photography of mine, so let me know if that would interest you.

Ask, and I will do my best to deliver whatever you want. I always aim to please!

Writing 201: Poetry… Fog


Day 5 of my WP poetry course and I am suffering badly with the mother of all flus and a cough that won’t quit.

My head is a mess of jumbled gibberish. I can barely form a coherent thought. I want to go back to bed and die.

But, I click to see my assignment for today is to compose an elegy, using elegiac couplets, incorporating a metaphor, all inspired by the prompt word fog.

No worries then! (yep sarcasm rears its ugly head!)

I thought I might as well embrace the fact my poor little brain is muddled and write about the fog inside my flu-filled head. Elegy is definitely not my usual style and I did find this exercise a challenging one…  but that is why I signed up, to be stretched out of my comfort zone!

I have to say, kudos to Ben Huberman, this course has been some of the best fun I’ve had in a while!

Here we go, I offer you my very, very humble elegy to brain fog!

Fog

Murky muddled mess of mixed up emotions

Ideas, thoughts, confusions and notions,

I struggle to make any sense from this smog,

I cannot find my way through this fucking brain fog!

Thick, sticky peasoup, brainstew, in my head…

I fear that all hope for mental clarity… is dead.

As usual, I am not very pleased with my result, but as I feel so dreadful today I went with the “fuck it, it’ll do!” philosophy…

Feedback people… always welcome!

Ciao!

Writing 201: Poetry… Animal


Oh dear lord! I swear @benhuberman! You will be the death of me!

Our prompt today was animal, our form was concrete or shape poetry, and our device was enjambment, which, handily enough, is one I that already use frequently, although I had no idea it had a name! So, yes I learned something new again today!

I am clueless when it comes to anything HTML related, but I did try to format my offering into a picture, as instructed… with dismal results!

So… I adapted today’s task a little… Rather than not join in, I thought tweaking it was perhaps forgivable?

This has been the most challenging, and the least fun, assignment yet, simply because I got too caught up in the technical side instead of the creative side. Also, a personal dislike for the concrete form threw me off. With the exception of e.e.cummings, I dislike the pretentiousness it implies. Just a personal feeling!

Anyhoo… here is my sad little offering for today…

Lily…

Yeah… it’s very, very far from great! But I’m no quitter so I, with a red face, publish it regardless!

Ciao!

Writing 201: Poetry… Trust


I am loving the Writing 201 assignment today and can’t stop scribbling little snippets down!

Here’s the latest!

Broken

Because you lied, I cried all night

Reading the messages you left

Open on your phone, I sat alone and

Knew we were done

Everything we ever had reduced to

Nothing

Writing 201: Limerick Hell!


Ok this is not in my comfort zone remotely! Thanks @benhuberman!

I had a go… and in my opinion failed miserably but hey! Can’t win every time, right?

He tells me to write down a limerick

and add to it something alliterate

I sit here and type

tip tap at my table

and find that I’m simply unable!

Hangs her head in shame…
