“Melvin … bad, bad kitten!” – a new children’s book by Sannel Larson

melvinIf you’ve visited my blog more than once, you’ve no doubt seen that I’ve featured the poetry of my dear friend Sannel Larson a number of times. Well, I’m doing that again but today with a great sense of excitement as I’m proud to announce Sannel’s first children’s book, “Melvin … bad, bad kitten!” is now available on Amazon. Hold on, you say! This is a poetry blog. Aren’t you supposed to be writing about poetry?

Well, I am! Sannel’s book is written in rhyming verse and details the adventures, or should I say misadventures, of the adorable and mischievous Melvin. Sannel also created the beautiful, colorful illustrations in the wonderful children’s book that would be a perfect gift for the little ones in your life. So, I encourage you to check out Sannel’s new book.

You can also learn a bit more about Sannel on her Amazon Author Page or by visiting her blogs, Sannel in a Nutshell and Sannel’s World of Poetry. You won’t be disappointed to visit either but, better yet, visit both!

dandelionwishessometimes I must simply see
what I wish won’t often be
and if I love, one true sign
is if her wish becomes mine

Distinguishing Between Writer’s Block and Your Own Writing Style

blank_journalBeing a relatively new writer (I’ve only been at this a couple of years), I assumed that every period of more than a few days without writing meant I was experiencing a block. After all, I aspired to be a writer so shouldn’t I want to write consistently and constantly? However, I would go for weeks at a time without writing a word. Sometimes a month or more would pass without a poem being produced. Such long lapses in productivity led me to question if I truly had the desire or talent or whatever it takes to actually be a writer. There were times, as Wikipedia points out, that I’ve seriously thought of abandoning this ambition!

long, slithering, alien tendrils
snaking slowly, incessantly
stealing throughout my flesh
wrapping themselves around
bone and organ and brain
rooting into my being
changing my nature
but they do not belong
