April 2011 – A new plan

firstly , A HUGE thanks to SIS [ for feb haiku challenge ] and Cloaked Monk [ for March Challenge ] to keep me writing daily in the past two months. It has been quite a busy time on my blog for me and the usual readers [ 3 posts in 2 days is as difficult to write as to read and comment 😉 ]

April is the National Poetry Month in USA and Canada. And so many of my fellow poet friends would be writing “A poem A day” [ As part of NaPoWriMo ]

I have decided to trace a different path. I am not going to check any prompts all the month [ I swear I will not, unless I notice on some one’s blog 😉] but only read your wonderful poems. And If any image / poem / line on your blog inspires my grey [ or whatever color they are ] cells to work , I will post it on my blog with due link back to the inspiration.

And I also hope to finish the personal poetry project I started a month back [Wish me luck for that please].

And with this I rest my pen [ metaphorically ! I rarely write on paper otherwise ] for a while.

Last [but not the least 😛] I will finally use my time and blog space to share some of the fantabulous words I read . So keep visiting for a ride / dive into poetic seas !

Don’t you be my muse 😉

Stay Blessed and inspired !!

Love and Luck,
Nimue
PS : Maybe I will complie a list of daily challenge for you on my blog till I am not writing in my free time.

 Urban Shots

 

 

 

+ Seperate sections of stories

+ Amazing narration of most stories

Rating : 4.5/5

 

 

 

 

The Treasured One [dreamers book # 2]

(byDavid and Leigh Eddings)

+ considering the background information provided on each character, you dnt need to read book# 1

+ good plot , good narration and some really witty dialogues

– If the repetition of scenes is going to be there, am not too excited to read book # 3.
