Blogging Break!

18 July, 2017

Just a quick post to let you all know that I’m taking a break from blogging until October.
We are now in our mega busy season in the new enterprise that I have started and I need to concentrate on that.
And, as August generally sees the lowest visits to my blog due to the holidays, I didn’t think you’d miss me too much!
I will be back in October both here and at my other blog Pure Haiku!
See you when I see you! Much love Freya xxx

Haunting Verses 1 – 3

3 July, 2017

Here are the first three verses of my Freyan Verse, Haunting. How would you go about finishing constructing this form? This poem was inspired by death and memories of the dead people that kept returning to me.
For a full explanation about this poetical form that I have invented, please visit Freyan Verse.

Haunting Verse 1

26 June, 2017

Here is the first verse of my Freyan Verse, Haunting. It’s about death, how I lost people and nearly died myself a few years ago. How would you build on this first verse to create your own? I will post verses 1 -3 next week to show you how I built this particular poem.

Happy Christmas!

22 December, 2016

I would like to wish all my readers and supporters a Very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year!
Thank you everyone for all the support you’ve shown me through what has been a pretty horrendous year. Thank you for all the re-blogs and sales, for all the encouraging comments and messages. Thank you for everything.
I’m taking a break now for a couple of weeks, but plan to be back here again in the New Year…!
Don’t forget to check out the new, very short videos I’ve been creating at YouTube.
See you all again in 2017!

Thank you for Being…

12 June, 2015
Thank you for travelling with me on my road to Being… Again, I am taking a break from Dragonscale Clippings for a few weeks. Instead I will be blogging over at Pure Haiku My guests and I will be exploring the theme of Death (not as morbid as you might think!) Why not join us there? I’ll be back here in August where I will be sharing some of my Tanka with you. (I’ve been practising various poetical short forms in order to get my creativity back…) Thank you for your comments and companionship.

Without Words – for a short while

27 June, 2014
As from today I will be Without Words and Offline until Monday, 14th July 2014.
It is time for me to rest and relax, to escape from words, both written and read.
This time I have not scheduled any posts to appear on either of my blogs while I am away. I feel it is necessary to take a complete break from the internet.
You can find out what I discovered when I went Without Words last year for 5 weeks at Why, How and What
I look forward to catching up with you all again on my return in mid-July.
Stay creative. Learn to take a break when you need to you. See you again soon. Much love. Freya

Without Words & Offline …

21 March, 2014
I am painfully aware that I have not been present much on the internet in the last 2 weeks. The good news is that my soulmate is just starting to make a slow recovery. I am really struggling though to keep going and writing has just stopped. I haven’t been able to visit all the blogs I usually enjoy reading and neither have I been able to follow back or leave comments as I like to do.
I had planned to take a break Without Words at the end of March when my creativity was burgeoning in January and February. I had no idea I would absolutely need to take a break at this time. Looking after my soulmate has been tiring but cope-able. It’s everything else on top of that that is hard to cope with; losing my credit card and hearing the devastating news that one of my writing friends with whom I had corresponded with for nearly 20 years, had suddenly died.
So I am taking a break Without Words and will be Offline now until 2nd April 2014. I have scheduled enough posts to cover my absence (including Wednesday Words) and look forward to catching up with all your blog posts on my return. Stay creative and healthy! Much love Freya xxx
