prose, blogging & life {it gets in the way a lot}

.
i’m afraid life is getting in the way of  my being able to do all that i would like to be doing here at the blog because of  worsening laptop problems and a flood in my apartment. i apologize to the featured poets who are still waiting for me to post about them. i will do my best to have everyone’s done before April 30th when National Poetry Month ends. thank you for your patience. stay tuned April 29th and 30th for special poet posts. i am also behind in approving and replying to the kind comments being left but hope to get them caught up by Tuesday. Oh, and it’s impossible for me to visit other blogs for a few days. i will miss you all.

if  you like the featured poet posts, please leave a comment. i plan on continuing this feature after National Poetry Month is over if  there is interest in it. not every day to be sure, but at least twice a month, if  not weekly. what do you think?

i have recently begun attempting to write prose, as frightening as that is to me. one site where i have had prose posted is  .  Photograph Prose  .  if  you are a writer and/or photographer, you might want to register to participate.  even if  you’re not, please visit them to see the wonderful works by many writers you know plus writers and photographers you haven’t met yet.

my post for Sunday, 24 April 2011 is actually on the Photograph Prose site. it won’t qualify for NaPoWriMo since it is not a poem, but i write more than one poem a day fairly often so will have the 30 poems in 30 days completed in just one more week. i am going to reblog both of  my pieces with the links back to the stories at Photograph Prose so that you can see the wonderful photographs which were the inspirations for the stories. i hope you like them.
