You’re Bored, Right????

Hey Everyone,

I’m here to do my bit for the community and relieve your boredom … and yes that means I have just uploaded my latest title to Smashwords.

So knock yourselves out scampering to Smashwords to download my new title FREE OF CHARGE and of course any other books you might like to peruse.

To celebrate this occassion I have written a drabble (of course), for you all to shake your heads in wonder at.

She liked to write stories
She liked to keep them short
But they cluttered up her hard drive
Like tourists on a holiday in a free resort

She wondered what to do
Then she had a great idea
She’s publish them together
And get them out of here

She prepared the collection
She was quite pleased with the result
But how to get people to read them
She was determined not to resort to the occult

Traffic was what she desired
She’s hit the internet like a freaky storm
Perhaps then she could smile
And become a legend reborn

If you are suitable impressed and would like to leave a review that would be fantastic.

Deb

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest – it’s back to school

I am thrilled to announce that this week I was the worst poet in the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest.  If you hate my poem, then check out the other entries here or if you are looking for a challenge why not try this weeks topic – towels.
back to school

Long have the halls been silent,
The chairs empty, the locker doors thrown open.
Long have the weeds grown,
Unchecked, through the days of winter, cold and dull.
Long has the toilets been clean,
The stains and smears of adolescence finally washed away.
Peace has reigned.
As the bell sounds for the first time,
The rodents, the cleaners, the teachers,
Grimace their despair.
School’s back.
So sad.

“Don’t remove it from off your eyes yet! I’ll tell you when to.” Pushing her forward as the trail became nearer in vision with every step forward. “This is insanity Jack! Why do you plan such strange surprises?”
Don’t worry, everything will be fine. It’s not as bad as you think! Relax.” Unmoved feet buried into the soles of the green lawn. “Okay, remove it now!” She obeyed quickly untying the blindfold as it dropped to the ground he screamed, “SURPRISE!” “What’s so surprising about this?” As eyes peered disappointedly at the old, rusty, white door of an abandoned house. “It’s that new home you always wanted! I got it for you! Happy birthday!”
“Are you kidding me?”
“You don’t like it?”
“What makes you think I don’t? Of course I DON’T like it!”
