Busy in Blogsville

Posted on

I’ve been busy in the land of blogsville since I got back off holiday, mainly to compensate for the two weeks I’ve missed. I’ve posted a couple of reviews in my reviews blog (there’ll be many more to come) and I’ve posted a couple of photo’s in my creative blog. Due to receiving no response from the e-zine that I sent my poem into a few months back; I thought I might as well add that to my creative blog a little later. I’ve also been checking out some blogger’s photography posts on here, many quite impressive. I think the simplest things make the biggest impact.

Whilst on holiday I’ve been inspired to do something different with my life, I’m not too sure what yet but the thought of returning to normality after experiencing some amazing sights and interesting excursions depresses me. I need more stimulation in my life. Maybe I’ll start that free-lance journalism course a little earlier than planned. After all it’s what interests me.

It’s not very often I get a weekend to myself and since this was the case I managed to do a lot of thinking. I seemed to have abandoned my creative side after the last few hectic years of my life and seeing as things are not slowing down at all I might as well try to fit it in somewhere. It’s always something I have enjoyed doing since I was a small child. I was never any good at maths or anything technical at school… my brain just didn’t work that way; but give me a piece of paper and I would spend hours perfecting a sketch. I can’t sit back and watch my skills go to waste so once I have the materials I am going to begin painting again. I like to work with acrylic on canvas using bold colours in an alternative fashion.

Something else I haven’t tried my hand at since I was… a teenager (crikey! I didn’t think it was that long) is writing poetry and I started this yesterday. One I finished and another is on its way to completion. Again, this isn’t a style that some people would find appealing… I’m very much into my horror/fiction. I have already submitted my completed poem into an e-zine in hope that it will be published there but as its my first poem in such a long time I’m not sure whether it will be any good or not so fingers crossed.

I thought that it may be a good idea to create a separate blog for all things arty farty. But I shall update you about that nearer the time. Anyway I’m off to try and finish this poem which has presented me with writer’s block… toodle-pip!
