Meandering on Monday with Janet Lane Walters #MFRWAuthor #BWLPublishing #Poetry #amwriting

Meander 1 - Poem -- Cotton Candy Man ---

Spun sugar on a paper cone.
Come, eat and taste delight.
He calls and ballyhos
To greet the gathering crowd.
Spectacle -- Spectators
Watch his flicking wrist
As it circles, twisting, turning
In the sugar spinner.
Whipping clouds of pink and white
Spinning dreamy dreams
Selling clouds of wonder
To the watching, waiting crows.

Meander 2 - The news

I watch the news in bits and pieces but somehow everyone seems to say the same thing. They dissect and analyze when a few words would be enough. So I watch in bits and pieces when the commercials come on as a diversion. Would be nice to hear something new but then again why?

Meander 3 - Writing

Working many bugs out of the new story Forgotten Dreams. Learned a few things I needed to add so I've begun again. But that's always the way. This time I reached the fifth chapter before I decided there needed to be some changes. With the way the first few chapters were going, there would have to be 19 and that's too many. Have gotten it down to 17. That's still too many. I'm sure there's a lot of repeats in the first four plus and they will need to be removed.
