Rarasaur ~ Justification and commitment.  Definitely worth a mention… Just because of just ’cause’?

Title by Jaq ~ Inkling.  So much atmosphere in just a few words.  It left me wanting to read more…

Msmousecleanshouse ~ K is for The Kite Runner.  Now higher up on my reading list!

‘Q’ is for ‘quill’

a to z challenge blog quill

How do you write?

With a notepad and pen or pencil?

Straight onto the screen?

I write by making notes on a wad of paper.  It feels more raw, more creative.  Perhaps using a quill and inkwell felt more ‘raw’ for writers of yesteryear.

There’s no doubt that a quill has a certain romantic feel about it that, to me, adds to the creative process.  One day though, instead of owning a quill, I will own a beautiful fountain pen instead.

‘P’ is for ‘paper’

a to z challenge blog paper

As regular readers will know (and a glance through my more recent archives will show), I have been getting the ‘paper’ bug lately with #BringBackPaper.  Yes, I have sent a few notes and rhymes off to penpals in an attempt to brighten up their day and their letterbox.  And maybe even the postie with the decorated envelopes!

I’m not adverse to technology.  Far from it.  I mean, I’ve written 3 eBooks with more in the pipeline!  A day doesn’t feel complete without blogging, tweeting, liking and sharing.  However, I like to receive nice post and decided to send some too.

What I love about paper is that you don’t have to spend a fortune to make it pretty.  A few doodles, maybe a bit of washi tape, or even simply an artistically written address can really jazz up an envelope!  Let’s face it, we could all do with sunshine in with those bills and junk mail…

I Rhyme on Occasion

I rhyme on occasion when I write for my blog.

The words ebb and flow through creative fog.

The ideas, the rhythm make it all come together

Come rain or shine, through all blogging weather.

So welcome my friend, come in and join me.

You’re just in time, the kettle’s on for a nice cup of tea…

‘N’ is for ‘nifty’

 

a to z challenge n nifty gadget

A nifty little gadget in the blogging world that I use 2-3 times a week is the linky.

It’s a fantastic way of not only meeting new bloggers, it also gets your blog ‘out there’ and introduces some structure to your blogging week by committing you and your blog to posting to that linky.

The linkys that I regularly take part in on VirtuallyAllSorts are:

#TheThemeGame with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence and Iona at Redpeffer

#WordoftheWeek another one with The  Reading Residence

And once this challenge is complete, I plan to post to #FridayFictioneers with Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog ‘Addicted to Purple’.

‘M’ is for Mummy Bear’s Blog

note on a cork board

 

…in other words ‘M’ is for my alter-ego.  Back in December 2013 it became quite clear to me – and probably my reader too (I should have asked really – oops!) that I shouldn’t continue to blog everything on VirtuallyAllSorts.  My parenting thoughts were creeping in.  Let’s face it, why would you want snippets about my little bear when you want to escape and focus on reading, writing, virtually everything else?

 

And so Mummy Bear’s Blog was born…

Funny… a smile is such a simple thing

The theme game funny

A smile is such a simple thing, isn’t it?

Have you ever noticed that when you’re in a really bad mood, I mean a ‘the milk’s gone off, my alarm didn’t go off, I needed to wash my hair and the world can bog off!’ bad mood – yes that bad…

Have you ever noticed that when someone’s annoyingly happy and nice, you just want to go ‘grrrr’?!

On the flipside, have you ever noticed that a simple smile can lift your mood?  Even a really bad mood…

Put yourself in a good mood.  Have a laugh at my ‘Smile – give your face workout’ Pinterest board!

‘L’ is for Letters

note on a cork board

Being a blogpost for the #AtoZChallenge, you could be forgiven for assuming that this post will focus on the letters of the alphabet. Not so.

 

That would be a little too predictable.  No, this blog is about #PostCircle which is for the love of snail mail.  Yes, I shuddered too!  Snail mail, in this age of digital interaction?  Surely not?!

 

Yes indeed.  Hop over to Miss Beatrix’s blog find out how much fun it is and to join in…

 

I’ve put my stamp on it.

Reminiscing…

Word of the week reminiscing

This week I have been reminiscing and writing a few little notes as part of my rekindled love of letter writing.  This rekindled love has been, well rekindled, in the form of PostCircle with Miss Beatrix, Bring Back Paper by Jocelyn at The Reading Residence and my own post ‘Join me in sending a postcard’ which was written in its own right for The Theme Game of ‘paper’.  So it’s quite apt really!  In that very same post, I ask you, my lovely readers, to join me in sending a postcard to a friend…  It may have taken me a few weeks but I have done just that this very week.

I have written notes with personal rhymes to my Canadian ‘penpal’ Jennifer and to my very good college friend Dawn.  This next week I will be going to the post office, buying self-gummed stamps not old school lickable ones (a whole post in itself for a geeky day!) and popping them both in the post box.  By doing that I will get a little warm fuzzy feeling.  In a few weeks’ time I will be posting more on how I came to be involved in the ‘penpal’ scheme at school back in the day, and how it has evolved in the digital age…

Until then, I’m going to grab my washi tape (my new obsession!) to decorate my lovely little personal notes!

My Word of the Week is ‘reminiscing’?  What’s yours?

‘K’ is for ‘kred’

a to z challenge blog kred

I’m giving these #AtoZChallenge bloggers some ‘kred’, which fits in nicely with my ‘K’ in the blogging challenge…  Read more about kred here.

Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy the read.  I did!

Indie Ashley ~ F is for F Oh Yeah I Went There - A slightly unconventinoal read, which is what this challenge is all about – getting out of my comfort zone.

Hopes and dreams: my writings and my sons ~ G is for gun – a chocolate one! Have a quick read!

Olivia Irene Photography ~ H is for highland grog – an interesting caffeinated concoction!

The Ruralhood ~ Ironing boad – ironing out the past.
