Meandering on Monday with Janet Lane Walters #MFRWauthor #Poetry #Writing

Meander 1 - Poem - A Day In the Life Of A Housewife

Sixthirty and a jarring ring
Disruption breaks a fancied dream.
The day begins with squeals and yells.
With hurried bustling breakfast time.
Then quiet descends on the house
As off to work and school they go.
She is alone to fantasize
A million worlds and more
As she goes about the daily chores
Of dreary repetition.
Washing, ironing, make the beds.
Vacuum, dust, scrub and rub.
The day wears on and out and in
With telephone calls and errands short.
The quiet broken when school is done,
Abd the same messes occur again.
Dinner's over 0 The kids in bed
The day is done and sos is she.
She goes to bed to dream once more
To wait and repeat and repeat and recur.

Meander 2 - Promoting - Not sure how other authors feel about promoting but most of the time I feel this is taking me away from what I want to do. One problem is how does one know how effective this is, especially when many of the sites change their algorithms almost weekly. But one must do it unless they're one of those lucky writers who everyone wants everything they write even if it's not their best work.  I don't mind going on other people's blogs and doing an interview. so there is that. But what one must do they sit down and do.

Meander 2 - Writing - Progressing with the Cancer-Capricorn Connection. Seems to be moving well and the good thing is I'm not sick of it yet. That's good because there are many many words still to write to make this a full story.
