RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #80 Style & Fresh

Ronovan, from Ronovan Writes, hosts a weekly Haiku Challenge each week. His prompt words this week were: “style and fresh.” I used “alert,” for fresh and kept the word style.

“The Lacemaker”

She traps and ensnares –

alert only to her craft,

spinning her rare style.


Thanks for stopping by. If you would like to know more about Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge, click here. Until next week,


Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Once in Your Life

I had to share this stirring and lovely tribute to Yecheilyah’s husband for WQW! ❤

The PBS Blog

Welcome back everyone, to another Writer’s Quote Wednesday segment, as hosted by Colleen of Silver Threading. Now, you may have noticed when you peeked at your reader that there’s a very handsome man to stop by the blog. Well, yesterday this fine young man was blessed to see another year. His name is Moshe and he is my husband. For this Writer’s Quote Wednesday, I present this beautiful quote by Bob Marley in dedication to the love of my life. Marley summed it up so perfectly, as if having met us in the distant past and scribbled our heart into paper. I dedicate this entry to my “love bug” (with his Bob Marley looking hat on yall LOL):

#Writer’s Quote Wednesday & #BeWoW – Alan Rickman

Welcome!  This is an open invitation to join in on my blogging event called, “Writer’s Quote Wednesday” and Ronovan Writes’ event called, “BeWoW” or “Be Writing on Wednesday.”  This is your chance to highlight your favorite author’s quotes that give inspiration to you as a writer. Do you feel like your writing is getting stale? Are you looking for inspiration to keep writing? Then you have come to right spot!

Are you ready to join in?
All you have to do is find your favorite quote. Find something that truly speaks to you. This does not have to pertain just to writing. It can be any kind of quote as long as it made an impact on you. Then, write a post and include your quote.

There are no rules to follow.  Either create your own sayings (because after all, we are all writer’s here) or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.  Just make sure that credit is given for other’s work.  You can use Fotoflexer or Picmonkey, or any other program that you wish to make your own images. Click the links to go to the programs.

Fellow blogger, Sacha Black has an excellent tutorial on how to make photo-quote images. Click here to learn how to make exciting images with your own photos and how to add words.

Each Wednesday, I will post the prompt and all you have to do is take part! You have from that Wednesday until the following Monday night to post your quotes. I will share your images on social media for added exposure. Beginning this week, as part of the Writer’s Quote Wednesday post, I will include the links to the blogs that took part in last week’s post. Time is of the essence in my writing and I find that I need every spare minute I can squeeze out of the day. I no longer have the time to do a separate post for the Wrap-up.

Copy the badge above and include it on your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “Writer’s Quote Wednesday,” so we can find the posts in the reader. On your own blog post do a ping-back to THIS post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post.  (A pingback is when you embed (or copy) the HTTP:// address of my weekly prompt into your own blog post).

Make sure to check my weekly prompt (this post) to see if your entry is there.  You can copy the HTTP:// address of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.

Since Ronovan, from Ronovan Writes and I have joined forces he has been linking his #BeWoW blog share (Be Wonderful on Wednesday) now to include: Be Writing on Wednesday. If you would like to combine both posts, feel free to do so and link them to my post. I will make sure and add you to the quote wrap-up I do each Tuesday. Please make sure and check out Ron’s blog for more writing inspiration and motivation!

Miscellaneous & Recommendations

This weekend has been filled completely with puppy management. I haven’t had much time to read, write, or rest.  I hoped it would slow down now that she’s eight months old but she still needs 24/7 observation since everything goes into her mouth. Hmm, a lesson for me there I think. 🙂

The first of the year our neighbors set off some really loud fireworks & that turned our formerly fearless puppy into a nervous mess. Every time there is the slightest noise her eyes roll & she start looking up at the ceiling.

Now, what does this have with weight management? It limits meal planning, preparation & consumption. I speed through eating so it’s unsatisfying. We crate train her & that’s where she’s sleeping as I type but she can’t be there endlessly.

Friday morning I fell, landed hard on the tile kitchen floor. Fortunately the only thing broken…
