I had some short stories, poems and photographs to share ... and so here I am

The Gongs Have Been Pinned !

The results are out! Get over to The Shameless Lions Writing Circle to see who won what in my poetry contest/beauty pageant!

There are some surprises. There are some double winners. There are differences and similarities between the jury prizes and members' choice awards. Regulars of this blog have been recognised. There are some great poems and pics of lions, in case you hadn't noticed already.

It's been a load of fun. There's nothing like hearing a good roar over poetry and prose. Thanks to all those who voted.

Now I'm off to Italy for a week (via Switzerland)! Mama mia!

Thank you so much for EVERYTHING, for starting the circle, for working on it so tirelessly and with such committment. For all the work you've done, thank you a million times.

I can't tell you how great it's been so far, how rewarding, inspiring, exciting, and so fun it has been.

And we've only just begun! Write place and promises... (for those of you who don't know the Carpenters love songs, that's a subtle reference).

Thank you Seamus. We look forward to all the great things to come in the future.

I can only reiterate what Scarlett has already said. I'm thrilled to have got a place. It's made my week / month / year ... :)

Hey you guys, thanks for your kind words. It has been a pleasure! :) I'm off to Italy now for a week, so will organise the vouchers when I return on the 23rd. :)

You Europeans and all that time off. Bah. It's amazing anything gets done. I wouldn't know what to do with myself spending a whole week in Italy. And to go through Switzerland of all the ugly places! Too much green. Yuck. I'm glad I live in my cave chained to the wall as I do. They throw me slabs of raw meat when I'm good, and it keeps them from tossing me to the lions.

Seamus, you and Eugene are invited to visit my lion's den, The Literary Lion of Lyon. My mate Sophia has delivered our first cubs. Yes, twins! Hope you are having fun in Italy.
