Singular Sensation

If one experience or life change results from you writing your blog, what would you like it to be?

Wow, I don’t even need to think about this one!

mouth vs brain

If, through writing, I could perhaps, one day, far over the horizon, learn to communicate in person the way I can do here, I can do a happy woman!

I seriously fail to understand why my mouth can’t verbalize what is in my head and it is frustrating the living @#$%^&** out of me!  Perhaps I should go look at this list to see which one pertains to me!

My Life, My Book

From a famous writer or celebrity, to a WordPress.com blogger or someone close to you — who would you like to be your biographer?

The poor man would have to return from the grave to accomplish this, or perhaps in the afterlife we can sit down and work out the smaller details, but I want no-one other than Shakespeare himself to write my biography.

Perhaps it is the love I have for the that time period; perhaps it is the love I have for his work – the way he intertwines tragedy and bliss.  I simply love Shakespeare, a love affair which started in Grade 12, when Hamlet was enforced on us as prescribed reading.  I started reading grudgingly, but fell completely in love with the man’s talent.  One of my bucket list items is to, one day, read and own the complete set of Shakespeare’s works.  O my, how fantastic that would be!

Daily Prompt: Earworm

Write whatever you normally write about, and weave in a book quote, film quote, or song lyric that’s been sticking with you this week.

My momma raised me to hold one very important life believe, and it is one of my favorite quotes:

Don’t ever underestimate the power of gratitude!

The second is one that is slightly more difficult, but equally important:

Finally, there are two songs I listen to at least once every day.  Unfortunately I am on the free WordPress, so I can’t upload media other than photo’s, so here are the YouTube links.  Enjoy!!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

 

 

 

I am very excited about the Weekly Photo Challenge!

We are blessed to live in the best place in the word.  Cape Town is any photographer’s dream when it comes to sunset photos.  Every single day offers the opportunity to capture a new scene and no two days are the same.  Here are my two personal favorites.  My fingers itch for the day when I can hold a camera again!

50 Shades of writer’s block

I’m emotional, irritated and annoyed.

writers block

In the span of 4 days I’ve read all three of the 50 Shades and I am utterly shocked at the effect it had on me.  I started reading with a preconceived idea and had, as a matter of fact, already made up my mind about what I wanted to write about the books.  I was so wrong.  I will do another post, a review if you will, during the course of the next couple of days, but for now I just want to rant about the writer’s block, no – void, that it has left me with.

The books have forced me to face certain emotional aspects of myself, which have been buried deep down for obviously far, far too long.  The result, I am unable to string two words together in a coherent sentence.  Bigger result:  5 started but never finished thus unwritten Daily Prompts, unfinished Weekly Photo Challenge and 110 Creative Challenge which is due today.

50 Shades have left me with a mountain of emotions to deal with, bringing with it a very sudden, inexplicably, out-of-control-very-unlike-my-normal-personal-control-freak-self rage, sulking and emotional roller coaster.

The cure?  I intend to just absolutely bury myself in writing today.

Needless to say, my stats have taken a serious nose-dive.  Thanks for sticking around, I’m tackling the block head on today and will be back with a vengeance…
