Hello everybody! I’m in the midst of the worst mercury retrograde I’ve ever experienced. A couple of months ago my email was hacked. To add to my bucket of woe, I have had countless issues with WordPress, Facebook, and today, Instagram. Someone cloned my account and is sending spam messages to everyone. The Instagram account is deleted. This doesn’t include all the issues in my personal life that have surfaced. It’s a tough time for all of us.
There’s been a few changes on my blog(s) and I want to make sure everyone knows what went where. I’ve split Word Craft ~Prose & Poetry from my personal writings. On my author blog, colleenchesebro.com you will find my poetry and short stories, along with Faery Tarot Friday. My pagan writings will appear there, as well.
I’m working on finishing up Fairies, Myths, & Magic II, A Winter Celebration, so if I seem distant, I’m writing. My other book, Word Craft ~ Prose & Poetry, should publish by next spring. There’s a lot going on!
Word Craft ~ Prose & Poetry at the new domain of wordcraftpoetry.com will be the main hub for the Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge. The weekly poetry challenge will remain there, along with book reviews and Author interviews. You might have to subscribe to my blog again to get an email of my posts. Currently, I have no email newsletter. Most of them want a paid email for my blog and not a gmail account.
I’ve updated the front page and the blog categories to make things easier to find. Take a look around. Let me know if something is not right.
I want Word Craft ~ Prose & Poetry to remain an active poetic community. In the future, we’ll have a brainstorming session (questions you’ll answer) to help me figure out where we want to go with the challenges. I hope to add some rhyming syllabic forms and I want your input.
I’d love to host a yearly poetry challenge, but haven’t determined the parameters, yet. I would love to sponsor weekly features (guest blogs) by poets who would like to share different forms for us to learn, or other poetic topics. I want to interview our poets! I want to know all about you and your poetry. More about that later!
Long term, I would like to compile a yearly poetry journal that everyone could purchase for a nominal fee ($.99 each) with submissions from the poetry challenges or from other submissions. (I’m not sure yet how that would work). That could give us the funds to host a small prize poetry contest each year.
Thanks for putting up with the moving of posts and all the other crazy WP issues. Please share your thoughts. I’d love to hear what you think.
No TRICKS… only TREATS!
