For Creative Writers Everywhere…

Archive for July, 2013



Most people can’t help but ‘ahhhhh’ when they see these cute animals with their cute teddy bear faces. My Mum loves them and she and Dad go on holiday or a Sunday drive, they often stop to look at and take photos of them. We’ve often talked about getting one or two; perhaps one day!

Some people say they are quiet and easy to manage [and, of course the ones I’ve patted at shows etc always are ๐Ÿ™‚ ] while others say they are stubborn and difficult. The chooks stories are rolling in after I mentioned that I didn’t have any for the October issue . . . but no Alpaca tales! What are your experiences with alpacas? Hard copy submissions only – PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria, Australia ๐Ÿ™‚


Night Owl or Lark


These owls gave us the look, and I’m sure would have much preferred to sleep rather than have us gawking at them!

Many writers tell me they do their best work in the wee small hours, perhaps because most others are asleep then.

I’m mostly an early riser but sometimes I stay up very late. Are you a night owl or a lark?


Singing along


A dual purpose post/prompt today . . . entries for the July mini-competition featuring the word RADIO,ย need to be posted by midnight tomorrow.

Stories up to 100 words, poems up to 10 lines, entry fee $1.20(unused stamps). Send to PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoriaย ~ I’m looking forward to reading all the different interpretations ๐Ÿ™‚

For me, radios have changed a lot since Mum and Dad gave me my ‘tranny’ when I was about ten. I still cringe when I think about our poor neighbours who must have heard me screeching along to my favourite songs over the back fence ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

And, for those who want to start brainstorming for next month’s mini-competition, the word is TOAD ๐Ÿ™‚


Guinea Fowl


Guinea Fowl are known for their great bug-eating in the garden but they are very noisy. I’d love a couple but as much as I love animals it’s always a problem if we want to have a holiday ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Keep those PET stories and poem coming, especially if you have a Guinea Fowl tale ๐Ÿ™‚

(See previous post for submission info)



In Hiding


The Koalas stayed in hiding, even when the attendants came to refresh their supply of gum leaves.

Gumbuya Park


I drove down to Gumbuya Park yesterday and met up with Pip. I wonderful afternoon. That’s me . . . pretty as a peacock ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

Have had more internet hiccups but all seems good again. More on Gumbuya Park soon…
