What did I miss? – A recap.

I have seen other blogs do this and thought, what the hell, let’s have a go and see if it works out.

I don’t, however, commit to doing this every week, but if it’s useful, then I might.

Something that I hadn’t considered before is that looking back over what you’ve done over the past week can identify certain trends. For example, I seem to have written much more poetry this week than usual. I have always written more stories than poems in the past. Also, a lot of the poems are comedy ones, supposed to be funny. Of course, when you write comedy, you do so without any real knowledge if it is going to work. It isn’t funny until someone else laughs.

Also, being the week of Valentines, there are quite a few Valentines related poetry (but not of the soppy kind).







Non-Valentines related poems:




I also discovered a new poetry form – The Elfchen:

So, tell me, Do you find it useful having the links put in one place?

Did you like any of them in particular?

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

    1. Bless you, Helene, thank you so much. IT is lovely comments like yours that make it all worth while. If ever i feel like giving up, I’ll just reread this and it will make me smile. 🙂

  2. I liked the links purely for selfish reasons: to discover which pieces were missing from my feed. Turned out there were several! The second part of Lighthouse and quite a few poems were new to me. I quite enjoyed them, especially the serious love poem. I did enjoy rereading the macabre one too…it’s probably my favorite of this bunch. So clever! And I agree this is a great photo. 🙂

  3. Letter From Beryl was my favourite too!
    This is a good idea Kristian, but I always look for your posts in my WP Reader anyhows and try not to miss a thing.
    You look very happy in your photo! Keep smiling 🙂

    1. Thanks Mel. I know a few blogs that do a recap and I thought I would give it a go. The reaction has been quite positive so I will probably do the odd recap post again in the future, but probably not every week though.
      I always smile when I have a nice glass of Gin in my hand. 😉

    2. Ha ha! That explains it! I only found out Goldfinch is a gin drinker just before he left. He was always driving so never drank alcohol. But he said when he has the opportunity it is a G&T for him.
