Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 88 Praise and Excite

I’ve been so busy of late trying to find a new job – I was meant to be starting a new contract just after the bloggers bash in London – but found my proposed terms of the new employment unacceptable which is a story in itself! When I read through the company pack it seemed that perhaps they might have a rat problem,  asbestos on site and random drug testing – so that didn’t appeal! Lol.  I decided not to accept that role. So, it’s been time-consuming trying to find another job.

In the meantime I’ve been taking my mind off the horrendous hassle of job hunting by writing book reviews, creating a mobi/epub copy of Book One for reviewers (SO REVIEWERS IF YOU’D LIKE A COPY DON’T BE SHY!) and working on Book Two in the Curse of Time series – The Golden Healer  – which is currently standing at a rough draft of about 50,000 words.

Lots still to do in The Curse of Time Series.  I’m starting to think about the potential for a powerful dragon – a volcanic stirrer of passions in Book Three!

It is my intention that Book Three will feature the Dragon Chronopage designed by  Dr John C Taylor OBE who I had the pleasure of meeting in September 2017 with Tina Fotherby.

So, my Tanka is dedicated to the dragon, the grasshopper and the fly which are all Chronopages created by Dr John C Taylor, OBE.

 

The dragon gave thanks,

To the kleptomaniac,

Grasshopper who danced,

Now came dragon’s pearly chance,

To spark volcanic passions.

For praise I used the synonym gave thanks, and for excite I chose spark.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
