New year, Not so new thoughts

January 6, 2012

Hello everyone.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and new year.  It was a busy and a rather quiet new year for me, and I’m hoping to get back to blogging soon.  New poems have been posted on The King’s Poetry and I’m hoping to get back to writing in the others too.

Speaking of writing, it has been suggested that I blog my novel.  How do I do that?  Do I do it a chapter at a time and allow people to view it and promote it?  Do I just write short stories and put it together as a novel later?  I’m totally at a loss here.  What I would like to do is put my first maybe 3 drafts online, and then take it “underground.”  What I mean is, then get local readers to read it, maybe an editor…etc.  Then it would change enough that I hopefully could publish it formally. Of course, I would get a creative Commons License at MyFreeCopyright.com, so it would be protected just as The King’s Poetry.

So, I’m looking for ideas.  If anyone has any, I’m open to them.  I’d like to give up this frustrating research and actually DO something!

Happy 2012 everyone!

From Frolic to Finnin’

March 15, 2011

This post, from Frolic to Finnin’ deals with the rest of my birthday week and some decisions I need to make. First of all, my husband took me out for pizza with some family and friends on Thursday to Royal Pizza. I chose a novelty pizza which is called “The Boss has Gone Mad.” It’s your pasta dinner in pizza form! You have your pizza dough, your filling is spaghetti and meat sauce with your mozzarella cheese. It was different…I liked it, especially the second time around. Yes, the second time around. I couldn’t finish half of it because we had a starter, so we were full. I had the second half the next day and the flavors were magnificent!

Secondly, thanks to some friends of ours, on Sunday, we went to see Steve Bell. His knack of storytelling and humor are a real class act. We had wonderful seats and a wonderful time.

Thirdly…you’re probably thinking, “What? More? Does she ever stay at home?” Yes I do, but this week has been a real blessing to me. Some ladies and I went to the Girl’s Night out. It was a hoot. You can see pictures of it by going here.

So, what am I “finnin'” about? I am thinking about doing an ebook of my Blog called the King’s Poetry. Subscribers would get a discount (and that would also include subscribers to this blog) and it would have pictures of paintings and photographs. So, what do you think? What would you pay for an ebook of poetry? Would you even buy an ebook of poetry? Please feel free to give your comments.
