Biography

Finding the first line to anything is the most difficult. Where is this place called inspiration? Then by chance stumbling across it while staring at a blank piece of paper. Being a member of Stockport Write Out Loud gives me the valuable support of personal friendship, that bonds strong positive energy, helping to produce a higher level of enjoyment to my writing. The more pleasure that a poem brings - - - the more I want to write.

You had some good special effects going on there with the Halloween party. I went to read it and it said ' entry not found' and THEN wait for it......It actually Disappeared. Now. Isn't that the stuff that a proper ghostly Halloween party is made of! 😂

Nigel, I have asked the technical boys to look at it for you. I can't see anything obvious.

Hey Nigel just seen this today, the comment went astray from me! So How's this French Poem going? Try climbing the Effiel tower with some trifle, but don't wobble like the jelly or spill the cream..... You had steel ladders ....I ended up with Friday the 13th Ladders and Snakes & Ladders, What a climb!

Golly gosh your French Connect
It does sound a bit saucy
With messy miss and splashy paint
And he up miss? sounds horsey

Now Nigel you're a fun writer
(Assume you're good on mic)
I don't know what I'm writing 'bout
(I'll quietly disappear.....)

See you on the blogslide.....?

Enjoyed Reading your 'When the devil smiles' poem in the Autumn Edition of Printed words. You have a talent for turning a random news story into a totally different creative piece.

Loved your comment, ⭐, thank you so much. I'm very new to this website. Greg gave me his card so that I can upload my thing. You're very observant, amazing a man can notice a woman's red painted toe nails!
