Current StatusPerplexed so much happening in publishing industry (poetry),don't know which route to take such a maze and have pulled out of first contract as not in list of acceptable in Writers Digest and making no headway 18 months in. Live and learn, at least now
What genre do you primarily write in?PoetryAre your reading habits ...?OtherWhat are your working habits when you write?Perfectly balancedAre you the edit-every-sentence-ten-times type, or do you prefer to let rip?Some self-editingYour ultimate writing ambition?To write to my hearts content and hopefully get an antholgy of poems out, that is easy on the eye, easy to read and yet touches on issues, taking the reader slowly through on a journey of learning with me.Your worst habit?typing too fast and hittiing the wrong key, or letting the mind rush off way before the fingers get there....lol.Your opinion on the books industry?Too much celebrity and hype, but good books still get throughWhat else do you want Word Clouders to know? eg: do you have 9 cats / like paragliding / eat nothing but tinned fish / work in the bath / live in Kettering?Live in Pembrokeshire, South Wales; UK. If I'm ill in bed I can often still read/write to occupy the mind... I've a devoted husband and 2 grown up boys who have their own lives now... and one healthy happy little grandson!

I've been writing for a little over 12 months, having not written since school. Disability and being unable to hold down a conventional job due to chronic pain and high medications combined with mobility issues, led me on a journey to find new things I can rather than can't do.. Thus I started writing,

by Jill 1 year agoCloud says it is your birthday, but is often wrong of late! If it is, have a lovely day. Think I deleted you from my 'Friends' by mistake some while back and so sending a new request. How is your poetry progressing and how are you? Jill x:)
by Weens 2 years agoHello stranger, how are you? Haven't seen you on here for ages. What have you been up to?
Hi, nice to see you on here. How is your lovely grandson?
by Tony 3 years agoCongratulations, Nana Anna! (Didn't you used to lead the Mexican army that attacked The Alamo?)
by Kit 3 years agoHow glorious! There's nothing so good at reminding us of what is most important in the world than a beautiful newborn baby. Congratulations!
Congratulations. How fabulous. Nana Ana will be easy for a little one to say. 9lb 4ozs. What did she eat whilst pregnant. Must have been fertiliser. lol. I'm very happy for you. May you have much pleasure from him.
by EJ 3 years agoThank you : )
by Spangles 3 years agoI'm so sorry to hear about your frail condition. I imagine it's very difficult to come to terms with.
Yes, I will definitely sign up for updates about your book. Good luck again with it!
Hi, haven't seen you on here for a bit. How are you? I've seen your news about becoming a grandmother. How fantastic. You know, they say having grandkids is better than having children, you can give them back when you've had enough. There's a car sticker that says, If I had known what it was like to have grandchildren, I would have had them a lot earlier. Congrats.
by Spangles 3 years agoThanks for your message. Surely you're much too young to be a grandmother? But congrats anyway - I hope it all goes smoothly. Are you practising all that cooing?!
Your anthology of poetry sounds wonderful. You're quite right - we can all find time to read short poems, and I think it's often the long ones that put people off poetry. I hope your agent finds the right publisher for you. I would imagine that the recent BBC poetry season turned a lot of people on to poetry for the first time. I shall have my fingers crossed on your behalf!
Thanks for asking about my mother. She's now out of hospital and in a really good convalescent home where they concentrate on physio, to get her ready to return home.
