When Soup Crashed

When Soup crashed, I went mad. My fingers would inevitably click on PoetrySoup whenever I went online, yet I'd be led to a blank page. With no challenges, my muse was lost, and I ached from missing all my good friends. On the brighter side, dishes piling up in my sink is a thing of the past. Hubbie enjoys me cleaning more; I finally caught up with my shows recorded on DVR, and I’ve now started that novel I’d wished to write! (fictional account of a future possibility!!) For David Williams' Life without soup Poetry Contest

    This is cute ,,,, I really didn't like the poem Angel Hearts, as you see I wrote it in 2012. I still think there's something missing. <3

    It's amazing how much this site has a hold on it's members. We appear to go into shock when we loose it for a while. It sure goes to show that it's a well liked site, and it's members of course. I'm glad this piece made it onto the winners podium Andrea :)

    PS IS addictive, I know it too :0) My novel is still in the rough draft stage... for many years now :( Nice Etheree, dear Andie! Happy Valentine's Day to you!!!

    LOL, yes, I remember how frustrating that was - maybe you'll do all those things next time...

    as difficult as time away from the Soup must be for a person as dedicated as you...I thoroughly suggest you take the time to complete a book. You have wayyyyy too much insight, skill, brains, and determination to not write this book! You have at least one buyer in me~ I support you every step of the way. I know we are opposites when it comes to style but much is to be learned from polar opposites. I enjoy reading your stuff.

    It can be a daunting reality, but a time for contemplation and reflection on other life goals as you say. I too need to find time to write a novel that has been pecking at the back door of my stress sullied brain. Good luck in the contest, this was exceptionally written Mrs. Andrea!

    It's a good thing I only have an hour. Poetrysoup would drain me of all my power. Labor of loves and passions of such. I'd be a cripple if I didn't have this crutch. But dieing that sweet death would not be so bad. I'd pass away grateful for all that I had.

    I am so glad those dishes will finally get washed, Andrea! lol. Just imagine having a clean refrig, garage, a manicured lawn, the list goes on and on...this is my super long weekend at work..I will sleep half of tomorrow and drop you some lines when I wake up tomorrow...leaving here in a bit. Hope all is well...this was a nice form to use for David's contest..You will do well! I loved the blog! Great remarks...Great teacher you ARE!!! Gwendolen

    You can write your novel. Do what I used to do when I was working - write one page a day. Soup is unique. I would miss it. Love, Dave

    the soup did crash. many times i was there for all of them. and i kept trying to get on because what i had was hot. i hated those moments.
