I feel like I need to say, “How much time do you have?” before I introduce my next Dynamic Blogging Woman. I really am going to have to pick and choose what I talk about because there is literally so much – I don’t know how she does it all! First and foremost she is a musician, mom, writer, photographer, poet, blogger, and really so much more, folks I give you Linda Roy from elleroy was here! She’s artsy snarky with an edge!
One of the things that Linda and I have in common is a passion for poetry. I was lucky enough to have her volunteer for OctPoWriMo last October to contribute to a month of inspiration and motivation for poets. Somehow my luck has continued because she decided she didn’t already have enough to do, and hung around to continue on with Poets on the Page.
A few favorites to check out:
This wonderfully wise crackin’ woman loves to sing parodies and you really don’t want to miss out on the experience! My favorite of course is, The Ballad of My Vagina!
She’s an editor/writer over at Lefty Pop: Suckers for politics and pop culture.
And her latest blog post, Just Say No. I agree 110%!
Pour yourself a glass of wine, kick your feet up, and peruse her pages at elleroy was here!
Wild Woman Waking Book Launch!
Tui Snider and I combined our talents for this book, her artistic photography mixed with my poetic ramblings creates a unique journey indeed.
Description on Amazon
What part of you have you suppressed, keeping it buried so deep inside that you almost forgot what is most important to you? Almost. As you read the poetic ramblings something stirs inside, your foot starts to tap, and you can hardly sit still. Maybe you turn on some music and dance into this new feeling, moving your hips as thoughts roam your head.
From Wild Woman Waking:
“broken smiles surrounding you
listening to ghostly secrets
desires of the heart
prisoner to your life
woman wake up and dance”
You grab your notebook and pen and begin to write. You realize you can’t sit still anymore because your eyes are wide open. Wild Woman Waking will have you looking at things differently and hopefully taking action for yourself.
Wild Woman Waking: “Sleeping isn’t possible once you explore the inner and outer world of poetry; transformation happens and your eyes open wide.”
If you grew up trying to be what other’s wanted and never sure who you really were or are, now you can choose to live and embrace your inner wild woman and maybe you will be inspired to write poetry of your own! Check out Wild Woman Waking!
