Blogger Award

Hello Fellow Bloggers, I am pleased to receive the Sunshine Blogger Award from Benjamin, an amazing storyteller at Brothers’ Campfire

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

The award is driven entirely by the community, passed from blogger to blogger in recognition of their inspiring, creative and motivational blogs. Each nominee passes it on to 11 of their favorite bloggers, and round and round it goes. This is a great way to give recognition to new bloggers and those who may otherwise fly under the radar of many people.

For accepting the Sunshine Blogger Award nomination, there are a few suggestions:

• Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog.

• Answer questions the blogger asked you.

• List the suggestions and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your blog post.

• Nominate new bloggers & their blogs. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know they received the award and ask your nominees new questions.

My Answers For My Friend Benjamin!

  2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to? I compare myself to Jesus, what will Jesus do?
  3. What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say? “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” -Maya Angelou

  7. Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know? I am not asking enough questions because I do not like to be swayed by other’s opinions.

  9. What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago? Writing a decent short story.

Calling for collaboration

Hi to my followers and occasionally stop-by readers!

I am calling for writing poetry in collaboration with You.

A bit of background of myself. I love writing poetry though I received no formal training in doing so, nor have I well read classic English poetry. So I write fairly free form for lack of knowledge. I believe poetry is a great way to express an individual’s creativity.

If you are interested in writing collaboration pieces with me, please email me here, we can discuss topics and a way forward.

Looking forward to hearing from you! 😊

Your help is needed

Dear Reader,

I am calling for writing prompts, not just any prompt, Your prompt is what I am asking help with.

For 343 days, I have been writing mainly poetry and posting on this blog. There were days I didn’t feel like anything would come out. Those days I managed to write something was attributed to the help from writing prompts.

I have been participating in a Creative Writing short course and will follow by a 30 day writing boot camp program. But for now, I feel I need the discipline to remain writing poetry daily.

So, your help is greatly appreciated, of course if only you would like to kindly offer me a poetry writing prompt. I will do my best to write one based on the prompt.

With respect and love,

Cassa
