in response to the daily post Handwriting
I like writing – poetry or prose – it doesn’t matter
its the process of writing that does it for me.
My handwriting’s evolved over the years. It used to be quite illegible – to the point i’d be given an Amstrad Word processor to do my coursework at school, but then I found changing pens worked – pen grips assisted – and eventually – people could read my stuff!!!
The key ??? let the pen take the strain.
Regular readers of my blog will already know I contribute articles for two poetry sites, one in the UK, and one in the US. Some of my work finds its way into their publications – and these are happily displayed on my bookshelf. The latest edition – an allpoetry.com book – extreme perception – arrived a few days ago – and contains my story poem on a sunflower. its all nicely printed and comes in a lovely bound paperback with pieces from other authors
But look below the bookshelf – and you’ll find a box of wonders – brimming with my notebooks – and full of my poems stories and thoughts
When I need to be away from the laptop , you’ll find me either nibbling on a HB pencil or twiddling with my parker pen, coming up with a scribble or three…and as the scribbles come together – and the stories or verses start to form – as the ink or graphite flows onto the paper.
The best stuff (sometimes) finds its way onto this blog….take a look here – you might recognise the scribble At the Zoo (Edinburgh)
