#QUOTE – The Writers’ Bugbear

Someone recently asked me why many writers are struggling to get their work noticed and I came up with this little quip.  Writers are still being successful and people are still reading, but in this “electronically digital” age, videos are the in thing. People want fast fixes, they haven’t got time to read and their brains are too engaged to hold the attention of what the writer is trying to tell them.

#QUOTE – Life Stinks

This quote reflects the saying ‘you get out of life what you put into it’. If you’re surrounding yourself with negative people that do bad things and/or treat you badly, then you’ve got to expect crap things will happen in your life. If you’re willingly leading a life of sin and destruction, if your actions don’t catch up with you, Karma certainly will.

Borderline Hoarder Or Just Overly Sentimental

I had some major repairs carried out in my home this week, which meant clearing out rooms so the workmen could carry out their duties. Whist moving boxes and bags of stuff that I’ve accumulated over the years from one room to the next, I concluded that a majority of it is mainly junk, but sentimental junk. A promise to myself to de-clutter and get rid is aimed to be completed before 2015 is over… Seriously!

3rd Ear Girl Isn’t This Bad But Given The Chance She Could Be

My eldest daughter is always calling me a hoarder but I never realised how much unusable stuff I kept hold off until last week when I had workmen coming to work in my home. As a sentimental fool, I have greetings cards, special items of clothing, artwork the kids created at school, gifts I’ll never use, books I’ll never read, all stashed away in cupboards. As a writer I have boxes, folders and bags of half finished stories and poems, magazine and newspaper cuttings that I intended to use 10 years ago but are too nostalgic to throw away now and books and scraps of paper noted with a catalogue of brainstorming ideas that I need to fulfil. Diaries that date way back to my school days revealing embarrassing crushes and disturbingly dark intimate thoughts of a hormonal teen, right up to the present, dealing with motherhood, deafness and life’s drama’s. I can’t just throw everything away but I’ve got to cleanse things up a bit, for the sake of my sanity and much needed storage.

So… the de-cluttering project starts, and as it goes on I will be sharing the journey with you. Hopefully I might be able to revive a few written pieces or ideas that will inspire or entertain somebody out there… We’ll see.  ~ 3rd Ear Girl

#POETRY – MY EYES By Jessa’s Will

This poem by Jessa’s Will expresses pain and sadness expressively with a figurative yet sharp impact.

My eyes
Revealing 
The agony I hide
Tears
Bursting out 
When the pain
I could no longer endure
I try to smile
Though
I have to carve it
Upon my face
With a blade of sanity
Bleeding
Just to put on
A happy face
But still
The sorrow shows
For it’s destined
To live within me
Until
My last breath

As much as I love reading mainstream published and well known writers work , I also support the lesser known writer’s that like myself, have beautiful work swimming around in a sea of lesser known authors publications on the web.  With #wordspot I will be sharing pieces from aspiring writers because “poetry not read, is dead” and we need to keep it alive.

 

#QUOTE – Uplift And Evolve

Today’s quote comes from entrepreneur, Russell Simmonds.  People are too quick to judge and scold a person who’s continuously struggling, instead of offering words of encouragement and support.
