All Good writers need practice; excellent writers need lot's of practice.
Look for inspiration and when you find it make yourself immediately available. Always carry a notebook and pen for any Inspirational Sight, Sound, Act, Revelation, or even Pleasure. Cultivate Curiosity, Trust, and Receptivity they each help add to your ability to make words flow more easily.

The Lady of the Flock
Deposit Photos have an excellent library on the net.
From side to side neath the sky,
Ranges the heather and gorse so high,
Many flagged in Blackdeek does water lie.
Clothes its world in knots that tie.
While Thro’ Blackheath, a track runs by,
The yellow-petalled flags stand tall
Nod their heads, as in freefall
She drops by for bathing privacy
Sady, Lady of the flock
I'd never been to court before,
Never seen the majesty of law,
Now here I sit to see the wife, who ruled full forty years of my life,
Arrested, standing head bowed in dock
Guilty of stealing food from stock
A woman of good character says the Judge,'
I know better, she's made my life a drudge.
'Whatever possessed her to steal,' says his Honour,
'Moments of madness must have come upon her,
'Seven cans of peaches had been her main haul,
Plus a few extra bits, that was all.'
The Judge in his wisdom gave forth his decree,
'I must make an example of you don't you see?
Seven Cans of peaches you'll serve seven days inside
One pint of milk - one other day beside.
Two days for two loaves - let this be a lesson,
Ten days it will be , before you leave prison.'
I couldn't bear to see her sentenced ten days out of hand,
I jumped to my feet I had to yell and stand,
'Your honour, ten items for...
This came out of nowhere and I don't know where it is bound.
There can be no article unless it makes sense,
There can be no article unless it makes sense;
So we are told, and in my defense,
I offer this Writing, a piece of nonsense
That no-one understands unless it makes sense.
COVID 19 lockdown, while some sit on their fence,
Is Government spending pounds whilst saving pence?
The present need for financial stability is intense,
Time now to keep records with due deference,
To each tortuous, political twist, and its reference.
Rightist and leftist, centrist et all
Are joining this quick step, posturing , prancing ball.
Then look askance, think of types of chance,
Leaders’ daily reading statistics in this sad dance,
Shall we credit them with saving us? if save us they do?
Or shall we forget them and say Testing kits were too few?
The antonym of slim-chance is surely not fat-chance.
Stay Home-Protect NHS – Save Lives
Remember, reference, to memories, and financial necessities
Are all in this piece to help it make sense
Wenhaston writers blasted through February and then was hit by hall closures and lack of contact.
With the help of my daughter, I have set up a private website from which we can 'virtually' continue the work towards producing The Wenhaston Writers 2020 book of creativity.
It works like this. You register on this site pick your own personal password and post the work that you have produced within the week.
I will submit the topic style and proposed genre, then ask for your support by you submitting your work to your personal page placings on this site.
I hope that this will work and would ask you to register, tell me how you are healthwise and let me know if you have any ideas on the way forward for this innovation.
We were collecting monies on a weekly basis towards the eventual costs of publishing the result of our year's work. Whilst I don't want to create a pay to learn system if...
