What is Nano Poblano?

 It is thirty posts in the month of November for National Blog Posting Month (or as we call it over in Cheer Peppers town – NanoPoblano!)

A quote – giving you food for thought about writing.

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” 

― William Wordsworth

My thoughts.

It is harder to do this than one can think it is, what comes from the heart can be very true, but cannot be written as it can hurt another human which is not my intentions when writing.

My heart breaths much love, which hurts me, bringing me to tears thinking about what I want to write about my personal life, knowing that if I do this I bring much anger from a very close family member.

As a result, I cannot fill my writings written from the heart.

Do you have a problem like this about writing from the heart?

#NanoPoblano 2017 – Day 17

Dirty Pots

Mother had been cleaning the pots and pans that had been pilling up from meals having very little time and extreme tiredness from preserving all the fruits from the orchard.

She had been putting them in the tub as she rinsed them, before washing them in hot soapy water in the kitchen sink.

She heard her husband yelling for her to come quickly, when she arrived it was too late her lifetime partner had passed away, now those pots and pans will have to wait for another day before they are cleaned and stored.

Thank you to Sonya of Only 100 Words for coming up with Three Line Tales.

#NanoPoblano 2017 – Day 16

What is Nano Poblano?

 It is thirty posts in the month of November for National Blog Posting Month (or as we call it over in Cheer Peppers town – NanoPoblano!)

A quote – giving you food for thought about writing.

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” 

― W. Somerset Maugham

I decided to search Google “What are the three rules for writing a novel” at the top of the search https://quoteinvestigator.com/2013/05/06/three-rules/ was

There Are Three Rules for the Writing of a Novel

After reading it, this is the best bit I came up with about the rules.

Bret Harte was a prominent American author and the editor of the periodical “Overland Monthly”. In 1915 one of the magazine contributors published by Harte told an anecdote about him that presented Harte’s tripartite instructions for writing: 

“Soon after I determined to make writing my profession, my mother came to me and said very solemnly:
“‘Josephine, you must ask Mr. Harte what books you should read to acquire a perfect style.’
“Accordingly I ventured into the editorial sanctum and said as solemnly as my mother had done:

“‘Mr. Harte, what books shall I read to acquire a perfect style?’”
“‘Oh, Lord!’ he groaned, swinging around in his chair, ‘for pity’s sake, don’t read anything! Just write! Write! Write!’

I think that solves the question, just write, write, write, if you are interested, check out the link above.

Well, that was an interesting search.

I haven’t started writing a novel yet, having a serious thought about though.

Do you have any rules when writing a novel?

#weeklytankachallenge -71

Simple Guidelines.

Using the words “beauty & wild” and write a tanka poem.

Tanka poetry consists of five units, usually with the following pattern of    5-7-5-7-7 which is syllables.

The first three lines (5/7/5) are the upper phase. This upper stage is where you create an image in your reader’s mind.

The last two lines (7/7) of a Tanka poem are called the lower phase.  The final two lines should express the poet’s ideas about the image that was created in the three lines above.

Not sure of your Syllable count? Check Here

  1. You can use the picture above, your own or no picture at all.

Copy and paste the link of your finished tanka in the comments below. I will acknowledge them the following week, also share on social networks.

My tanka poem  – using the words “Beauty & Wild”.

sheltering beauty
butterflies venturing out
exploring new life
viewing amazing insects
always excites my wild heart

There is no deadline here, if you would like to write a Tanka Poem from past weeks please do, I will add them to the appropriate week so readers can read them.

A lot of my posts about “life is beautiful” in winter has been quite disturbing about winter, but we have to be serious about winter it is not always beautiful, but us humans have found a way that our body does cope with the bad days and move on living the future.

Thanks, Kristjaan for the 30-day challenge I enjoyed it.

Happy days with the winter month fast approaching in many places in the world.

After all, spring is always just around the corner after winter.

A nice haiku poem to end the winter challenge.

spring is in the air
goodbye to a long winter
sun shining through trees
