Guest Bloggers and a New Look

new-look

After some time away and a fresh return Writings of a Mrs now has a new look and some exciting new ideas.
Oh and did I mention I am now a .com site!

I’m looking for guest bloggers to feature once weekly.

For those of you interested you will also see the return of ‘The Storetry’.  I would like to have at least two more installments before releasing the first ‘Storetry’ Collaboration eBook!

I will also be  continuing and showcasing Friday’s Featured Poet as well.

If any of the above interests you please see the tabs listed at the top of my main page for more information.

Please feel free to share your thoughts with me.

What do you think of the new look?

I walk and wait

My state

Of mind

Blank

Drowning (in my own fears)

Frowning (the lost years)

The birth

Of new life

Crowning

Rooms away

Full of cries of life

Not anguish and strife

Tears pooling my eyes

I dare not blink

I want the tears to dry

For I fear if I cry

Let a single tear drop

My heart may just stop

Along with yours

Technology has advanced us in so many ways it’s almost a given that in a group of people if a question arises someone will jump on their cell phone and find the answer.  (You know those people)

Technology has especially advanced us in regards to learning.  I want to take a closer look at the causes and effects of this new generation.  The new ‘tools’ available to aid us in our search for information.  The new Google generation, the cut and paste generation and I don’t mean with scissors and glue.

Chris McMullen: Read Tuesday, Black Friday

I’d like to introduce those of you haven’t heard about Read Tuesday to this spectacular event!

Image

I’d like to thank Jennifer, Writings of a Mrs., for the opportunity to do this guest post. (*my pleasure Chris*)

The problem with Black Friday for book sales:

Every year when Black Friday arrives, customers do plenty of shopping, buying products for themselves and gifts for others. Stores offer enticing discounts, at least on select products, and shoppers stand in lines for hours before the stores even open. Continue reading

Heart Breaker

Heart Breaker

She pounds the ground

Pounding

Resounding

Shaking the earth

Making it quake

Deeper than her heart break

Her hot lava erupts

Into a burning rage Continue reading
