Milky Aurora, Gospel Poems and Fiery Redheads

Posted on Updated on

I have for the first time submitted a poem for potential publication in an anthology The Gospel According to Poetry. Today is the deadline, so keep reading to find out if it’s accepted or not. I haven’t quite decided what else I will do with the poem in question, Reasons to Sing; I will decide after I find out.

I’ve added some images to my website pages, including banners on the Projects page. I will be adding them to the individual pages as well, and once I have named my ‘verses I will have a re-organise and make new, better banners.

So this year I’m going to take steps to improve my blog.

I think I’m doing pretty well on the posting regularly front, especially considering my track record with past blogs, diaries, fan fiction and, well, everything. But I’ve read blog posts about writing the best blogs, and the words ‘multi media’, or words to that effect I can’t remember precisely now, have been mentioned.

I’ve recently started using Pinterest, so I’ll put a good pin on here now and again. Maybe sometime in the future I’ll move onto other things. (But not likely the virtual hopscotch. Sorry if you got excited when I wrote that. I’m sure you can find it on the internet somewhere.)

So my Pic Of The (insert period of time here) is …
