On Blitzen - Valentine's Blitz Contest - Room for 10 more - Dave Will's Blog

About Dave Will
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoThis ain't my day job and that is part of the fascination and fun.

Like many others, I write my stories and poems to fill an inner need, rather than an expectation of success or acclaim. In my writing, I strive to work and craft an idea or thought in a new way, sometimes achieving something worthwhile, other times failing miserably. Constructive comments are greatly appreciated and honest compliments willingly accepted.

After a somewhat rocky start the Blitzes are trickling in - not exactly a Blizzard but 25 are now in with room for another 10. I'd love to have the full quota before Feb 14 so please sharpen your quills and get on with it.

I've been 3/4 blitzed for awhile now. I've also written 3/4 of a poem for your contest. HA - seriously, life interruptus has lately focused on me, but don't give up on me. Even with 2-11 drawing its shade, it can happen! All the best ... CayCay
