Why writing is like a pantomime ~ #WonderfulWorldofWriting

My #WonderfulWorldofWriting writing blog linky pantomime inspiration writers block procrastination

Why writing is like a pantomime

Just yesterday I asked ‘what is a deadline?’  I’ve since been deliberatin why writing is like a pantomime, off the back of my blog post.

The curtain goes up, the dramatic music plays, the dust is suspended like a writer’s pen in mid-air, waiting for the action to cut through it…

Then the characters take centre stage:

  • Enter stage left: Writer enters and takes a look around
  • Enter stage right: Writer’s Block struts on the stage to dark, dramatic music
  • The spotlight reveals the Narrator to the back of the stage, telling the audience to boo and hiss when writer’s Block enters
  • Writer asks for the audience’s help. “I can’t find Inspiration!  It’s been taken away by Writer’s Block.  Have you seen Writer’s Block?”
  • Spotlight reveals Writer’s Block in the background
  • Audience: “He’s behind you…!”
  • Writer turns around and Writer’s Block disappears into the background
  • Enter stage right Inspiration
  • Enter stage left Writer’s Block
  • Cue Audience “boooooo, hisssss”
  • Exit stage right Inspiration
  • After a few ’rounds’ of “boo hiss”, the Writer finally finds Inspiration and knocks Writer’s Block on the head with a bucket of sawdust or something equally appropriate

The End!

Friendship ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

friendship #WonderfulWorldofWriting writing blog

Friendship

~

Some friendships come,

Some friendships go,

It’s a part of life,

She’s coming to know.

~

As she tries so hard to tell me,

As she tries so hard to say,

I make out that her friend was

Not at pre-school again today.

~

I hold her close to my heart,

I give her a big, firm cuddle,

Stroke her hair, hold back my tears,

Our little bear’s in a muddle.

~

She thinks her friend’s deserted her,

Not one friend but two,

My instinct tells me that

She thinks I will now too.

~

I can offer her little reassurance as

Her sobs subside from exhaustion,

I see her tear-stained face

And in her eyes I see her heart broken.

~

The circles of friendship are a wonderful thing,

The trust, joy, love, loyalty that they bring,

But our little bear is tired and confused

Her little heart has been trampled on and utterly bruised.

~

By Carol Cameleon

Written when our little bear was at pre-school.  Now at school, her mind is a little more mature but the potential for confusion is certainly still there…

Do you read, listen or ‘see’? ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

#WonderfulWorldofWriting news writing poem blog

And here is the news…

~

Do you read the news

For worldwide views?

Or do you choose to

Follow simply to amuse?

~

Do you read it?

Do you listen?

Or do you ‘see’?

Or do you tend to ignore it, just like me?!

~

Do you follow world news to see who’s boss?

Or celeb TV for the latest goss?

Both versions of ‘news’ make me a bit cross,

They smooth over the rough giving us the ‘gloss’…

~

News paints a picture for me and you,

Covering imperfections, but is it true?

With the ‘touching up’ it should be clear

But instead we’re given political smear…

~

It’s called editing, spinning,

It’s very cleverly used,

But before we know it,

Boy, are we confused?

~

But use your own free will,

Make your own mind up though,

Hear both sides or better still,

Just go with the flow…

A Virtual Dilemma ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

WonderfulWorldofWriting writing blog linky virtual dilemma poem

A Virtual Dilemma

~

I’ve been contemplating something

For a teeny little while,

Should I run 2 blogs or put 2 in 1?

Am I happy with my style?

~

The reason for the separate blogs

Was to keep something for ‘me’,

I’m a wife, a mum, a writer,

I’m a busy little bee…

~

When I blog about my family life

I can be a Mummy Bear,

When I blog all things writing and beyond

I’m in my ‘me’ time lair…

~

This way, the lines are not blurred

with 2 blogs on the go,

2 identities, 2 readerships

2 of everything to get to know…

~

Truth be told I feel some pressure

To try to be a ‘lifestyle’ blog queen,

To include what others have on theirs,

Can’t I be me and go in between?

~

I think I know the answer

But I would love to hear,

Should I stay in neutral/automatic

Or go up or down a gear?

~

Would it be considered ‘up’

To go 2 in 1?

Or be better and/or easier

To stay 1 and 1?

~

For 1 add 1 makes 2, it’s true,

I’m divided, can you see?

Back to square 1, what’s the answer here?

What’s the best all around for me?

Different Destinations ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

#WonderfulWorldofWriting blog linky poem

Different Destinations 

~

Everyone’s thinking something different

Everyone’s got a tale to tell

A stop-off to meet a friend

A break from shopping

A chance to get out of your 4 walls

A common ground where people go

To take a breather

To take 5

To have some headspace

To have some company; ‘talking’ or ‘anonymous’

Welcome to the cafe…

Prisoners ~ poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

prisoners blog linky poem #WonderfulWorldofWriting

Prisoners 

~

How often I’ve spent time with you

Is really quite shocking;

How often you’ve kept me company

Is really quite reassuring

~

When I’ve needed answers

You’ve always been there;

When I’ve needed a friend

You’ve always been here

~

But not everyone trusts you,

It’s a sad fact but it’s true;

But what about me?

I admit at times I haven’t, too

~

Yet here I am with you

Right here, right now;

Yet again I am sucked in

You have a knack, somehow

~

You are the one that’s entangled

Many lives in their wake;

You are the World Wide Web,

Oh, how many prisoners you take!…

~

By Carol Cameleon for #WonderfulWorldofWriting

A little poem inspired by writer’s block!  While musing on what on earth I could write for this week’s #WWW linky, I came up with this here poem as a kind of ironic tribute to our ‘friend’ the World Wide Web or www for short ~ which is exactly what my WonderfulWorldofWriting linky shortens to…
