  7. Hi, Linda.

    My books and blog can be viewed at I have been blogging since 2011, but have been focusing more on posting my poetry.

    I am enjoying your blog. I love your explanations about what inspires you, the poems themselves, and the definition of the form. Excellent work!

    Thanks for the forum. I look forward to reading more!

  8. Hello. My name is Maya Morrow. I’m a writer who has just published her first book, entitled Silicon Valley Girl: My Adolescent Life and Times, and an Ode to Generation X. It’s my published diaries from age 12-18, so it’s an uncensored trip through all the pitfalls and triumphs of adolescence, from my POV.

    I also write poetry, and I established the blog to develop a platform for the book and to talk about whatever I want.

    It seems there are some talented writers here. Thank you for this sharing idea.

  9. Hello Linda,

    I’m a newcomer to the workings of WordPress and a recent admirer of your insperational bloggings and poetry. I have been posting for sometime under but until now I had no idea how much more I can get from WordPress.
    I have written a book; a unique 25 year adventurous period of my life, whichpresently gathers dust on a London publisher’s desk
    I do enjoy poetry but am no poet. I like to write and mainly do so scribbling of days gone by but now I can see by your blogg, there’s more to life than its history.
    Anyways, I’d be happy to be in contact with other writers.

      • Thank you. Your blog is beautful and I cannot wait to read more of your work. Poetry is a beautful form expression to convey the true feelings of what living with mental illlness feels like. It is my passion in life to help others in any way I can and I pray I help others often. Thank you for your awesome blg and sharing with me that you too are an advocate. We need more of us and we need to stick together and start diaglogs about mental illness and we need to spread the words of mental illness and mental illness stigma loudly, boldy and beatufully. Hugs and blessings, Sue

  12. Hey guys (and Linda), my name is Chris, I’m 24, and my blog is titled December Rose… I write poetry, short stories, and sometimes just ramble about whatever comes to mind. Some of my favorite things to write about are the places my mind wanders while sitting at work, which I title “Ruminations of a Working Man” which started with this post:

    While the majority of my writing on this blog so far has been one word prompts based, and while I primarily write for fun, I also do aspire to write novels in the near future, and I’m thankful for a platform like WordPress to allow a place for me to spill my brain and users like Linda who try to connect people 🙂

  16. Hey! I’m Bluebeard (much less evil than the evil pirate king Bluebeard, I promise). This meetup thing is a great idea. My blog can be found at My stories are conceptual pieces that relate to my various artwork. I suppose it would be considered creative writing with a creepy/pretty hand-drawn cover. I recently started to write poetry as well. I really enjoy your free-form style, from the few poems I’ve read. I look forward to reading more!

    I also appreciate you putting this thread together. Good way to meet fellow authors/writers/poets/artists.

  17. I hope my last comment didn’t post my phone froze. 😬 I decided to tap on it, as if that would help and In return I posted the word hello, missing the o. Predictable for me. I’m a beginning blogger just expressing myself and find higher consciousness. I see it all, I’m clairvoyant, but I have trouble getting the thoughts of society out of my mind long enough to act as it happens. I am shown a movie, reacting what I had felt or seen. My muse is my twin flame. He is manifesting his music career. Check it out! 😉

    Thank you for the gracious opportunity to post on your page. You’ve got style for miles!

  21. Hi Linda, Happen to float across your name and site because you liked a comment I posted on Robert’s site “O at the Edges”, And thank you for that. My name is Ivor Steven, , blog site, . I’m from Geelong, Victoria, Australia, the southern part of our Continent. I haven’t been blogging long, but thoroughly enjoying the friendships and opportunities that have arisen. I’m a semi-retired plumber, and dabbling in poetry for over twenty years. Basically I use my writings as a form of release and self therapy. I cared for my wife for thirty years, she unfortunately suffered from severe MS, and thus the poems begun.

    • I love the title, it’s what I look for every day and try to spill into Urban Poetry blog here! Welcome and nice to meet you! What prompted me to write back in Dec 2013 was a stressful relationship w/ my late husband and the deaths of 6 other family and friends. I forced myself to look within and find my happy place again.

  26. Hi all. Ladies, Gents.
    I’m a London based writer/blogger. I write about life, poetry, & culture. Albeit in an entertaining way that some will either love or hate. This may or may not include my opinions surrounding hipsters, coffee and sexual banter – R rated is evident but feel free to do as you will. Thanks for this post, Linda. I’m going to find this very useful. I look forward to browsing through the bloggers that have also commented on this entry.
