Just have a gander at these blogs by the people who shared links to their sites in my last NaPoWriMo post.
They are all very different from one another and I have really enjoyed exploring their material so please check them out.
Ladies and Gentlemen I give you:

I am off to finish a new poem that the kids have prevented me from doing for the last week – wish me luck, a clear head and peace for the next 2 hours….. ahhhhh…
I have recently joined the online writing platform, Write Out Loud and wondered if any of you, my friends, were already using this most excellent avenue for displaying and sharing your writing?
If you have not heard of this before, I would love to recommend joining. It’s free and it takes no time at all to become a member, develop your profile and create your WoL blog space which can be read by all members, share comments etc, just like your own WordPress or other blog.
Write Out Loud describes itself as a national hub for participation in poetry, encouraging everyone who writes poetry to share their words with others in friendly, welcoming open-floor read-around, open-mic events and on-line on the site. They support individual poets, poetry organisations and groups across the country, via a monthly newsletter and the website.
They champion performance poetry by providing a way in which poets can talk and listen to each other. They explain that their approach has captured imaginations and enthusiasm of many people through both the website and events. The site gets over two million hits a month. So, definitely worth joining!
Let me know if you are already there or if you plan to become a member. I’d love to know.
This band from Leeds, UK, inspire my writing. Awesome recorded and live, they are a tantalising cocktail of riffs, hair and vests (yes, I did email them once to find out where to buy undergarments just like theirs.) Love them.
In keeping with the topical current Winter Games, the first vid was shot as an entertaining teaser by KillDestroy films for the 2008 dalikfodda tour. The second is the band playing one of my favourite songs live – “Comfortably Crazy” filmed by Desertscene UK .
The night I saw this band play The Borderline in London a few years ago, I knew I would be hooked on them forever. I think it was because of their energy and charm (and straightforward Aussie sex appeal?) that I wrote my book. I sincerely hope they stay on the road until the end of time.
Thank you guys for all the inspiration. x
