An iPad Illusion
I walk around
my finger cocked,
does it have power
to paste my thoughts
(Just thought I’d share a little poem (or small stone) I wrote today. It’s a weird sensation copying and pasting on the iPad, I keep feeling like I am holding the words in my finger).
Well, it’s World Book Night 2011 and I have been spending the day so far logging numbers for the books I am to giveaway on http://www.bookcrossing.com and writing the numbers in the back of the books. Now I am hoping my printer actually works so I can print off the letter to go with them and then comes the delivering.
You can find out more about my plans here http://kirstyes.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/sh-wbn2011.jpgreading/wbn2011/
The book in question is Seamus Heaney’s New Selected Poems 1966 – 1987 and I have decided to give two away via this blog.
All you have to do to get a copy is to post a pick me comment (click on the little pin board to the right of the blog post title) telling me:
Why you would like to receive a copy and what you plan to do with it once you’ve read the wonderful poems it contains.
This giveaway will close one week from World Book Night ( on Sat 12th March 2011, 5pm) and I will select the two winners and contact them to make arrangements for sending the books.
Well, I didn’t do very well with ScriptFrenzy. After my initial mad bank holiday writing dash everything went quiet. Work and life and getting ill got in the way. Going to keep working on the Script anyway, then turn it back into a novel after. I am reducing my hours at work over the summer so hopefully that will give me both the creative head space plus the actual time to do a bit more writing.
My Round 4 poem is submitted (did rubbish with round 3 one). Part way through a story so not sure if that will get done by tonight.
Not on the topic of writing. I scratched my new car this week. Sniff. Gutted and very angry with myself. Looking at a few hundred to fix that. Also have bronchitis for the bank holiday weekend so feeling a bit sorry for myself. But, on the plus side, 3 day week next week and going to see Wendy Cope read her poetry on Monday.
