Whether you journal

In the morning,

Or you journal

In the eve,

You journal to get

Your thoughts out

Or you journal,

So that your words

Flow.

This journal is for you.

 

 

 

Whether you

Journal a short story, haiku,

Or to make

The lines rhyme.

You journal as a release,

After a long day,

Or to capture a quote.

Perhaps you journal

To savor an old memory.

It does not matter why.

 

 

 

Always remember,

Writing in your journal,

Is personal,

And never, ever

A waste of your time

Finally 4.21.19. My SIWO poetry contest entry

#SIWOPC

☀️

Dreary, dark gray storm clouds pass

Along with the dew.

A vibrant, Buttercup yellow sun appears.

It reaches across the morning sky,

To touch me, with it’s’ warming rays.

A smile brightens my gently, aging face.

I feel rejuvenated by this late, arrival,

Of our transformation into Springtime days.

Don’t forget to join in the fun of a SIWO poetry contest! 😁

Kind Regards – K

Late yesterday afternoon, I witnessed two gray, wild bunny rabbits chasing each other down by the pond! They were so cute!

Instantly, a smile flooded my entire body! What a glorious feeling! 😁

My Publishing Journey- My Three “E” approach 4.18.19

The margins and gutter are set!

I have re-learned the areas of word set up, I obviously 🙄 have forgotten since the last time I self published!

Everything transfers perfectly to PDF, then uploads lovely to Amazon publishing.

Pages paginated? ✅

Table of Contents on right hand side ? ✅ 😁

Copyright on back of Title page? ✅

Author/Publishing prose readymade and in place for introduction? ✅

NEXT?

When I publish, I look at it as an adventure! As with the set up, I need my THREE E’s!

🎈Experience!

🎈Experiment!

&

🎈Expand!

(or shrink) upon

the next step!

I now go through and look at the journal through the eyes of someone who loves to journal! ME!

Tooo long! 😝

Time to go through and shrink it down a bit!

Better too much than too little!

Still working on it! 🥳

Kind Regards
