I absolutely loved the prompt WWP gave this week! Write a poem that begins and ends with a one word line, that word being the same at both beginning and ending. Yet allow the body of the poem to create that shift in meaning for that one word
I had promised myself just last night, that I wont let writing get in the way of my other work. Most of you who blog, know what it is like. You open the mail to just have a peep and see if something urgent needs addressing. But there’s that mail, saying someone has commented on your post. That’s urgent you reason. So, you log on to Word Press, and reply. then you check out the reader and there is inevitably something interesting. Interesting stuff deserves comments. So you write comments and people respond and you respond to the response. Before you know it the morning’s gone! To be fair, today I tried my best to stick to my resolve. For three hours I resisted the lure of the computer but eventually it won the battle.
I sat down, promising myself, it will be only to check the mail. there was a comment , and then the reader and then this interesting prompt fell into my lap. It was just irresistible! I had to do something with it. Here’s what I did!

How do you make time for blogging? Does it encroach upon your ‘work time’?
