Deja Vu – A recap of some of my recent posts.

I have to admit, my mind is totally empty of ideas. As Sunday is drawing to an end, now is the hour to relax, have a bath and prepare for the week ahead.

I thought I would put some links together of some recent posts that you may have missed. I did this a while back and it was a great success. There are many bloggers who are busy during the week and so try to catch up with the blogs over the weekend, and as such, you may have a missed a few of mine.

 

Here are some of the poems I wrote recently:

I also wrote a number of short stories that were part of the same collection, the adventures of a little boy named Jeremy. I thought I would put them all together, so here are the links:

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).
