If you fancy seeing a picture of me looking something like one of The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills then head over to the fabulous blog Writing and Works run by Carol Forrester.
I don’t ever look like this in normal everyday life but when Carol was looking for guests to write a post in celebration of NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month), she asked for a photo of me to go with the post I’d written.
Now, I never take selfies, I just can’t get that photogenic angle and I rarely get a photo of me without the kids managing to ambush the shot with a “photo bomb” so I recently agreed to a studio session on a girls day out. The look I wanted to achieve? Rock and roll of course! Messy! Grungy! My eyes lined with black flicks! But the artist decided glam was the way forward and I came out looking like Alexis Carrington. Grrr!
Anyway – please checkout Writing and Works and my post too which discusses inspiration and “what is the point of poetry?”
Enjoy the sunshine!
