I have been writing on WordPress for a few months now. A retired midwife who always had hoped to be a fully fledged author in my retirement years. Trained from childhood on the Traditional ‘Egli’, that is the oral storytelling culture, I have continued into writing in many genres for myself and family. I got a poem accepted in a newspaper once but it’s so long I remember the poem or the newspaper. Is that terrible? No. I am sure to find it among my many papers one day. I am doing this course because I started by just jumping in and now learning the fine details of a blog is important to me.
The enjoyment of writing poetry, stories, plays and someone liking it gives me great satisfaction. I am a mother and Grandma too, from this role there is a well of information with an added flavour of my African heritage. Oh I mustn’t forget to include food recipes I love and travel tales.
Bloggers to my site will see lots of inspirational poems, prayers and stories. I would like to have a section dedicated to Pregnancy and Family Advice. Something new has happened since joining WordPress, my love for photography is back and I have been out taking some pictures, which I hope will be good enough to add to the posts I write. Everything I have written on my blog is new material. I look forward to a successful year of writing in the Daily Prompt Word Community and start publishing some of my old work. I have made a Guest Author position on Success Inspirers’ World and also many great friends, I call you friends because of the support you’ve given me here.
