When I started this blog in 2012, I had no long-term expectations for it. I simply wanted to provide prompts as a small service to other poets. Over the past 12 years, there have been 375 prompts, a number of guest blogger posts, and various other poetry-related items offered. It's been a lot of work, but it's also been a  lot of fun.


I'm happy to report that since 2020 and the start of the Covid pandemic, I've been fully vaccinated and boosted and continue to wear a mask when I'm out. So far, so good, and I'm still Covid-free. Sadly, though, I think we're all Covid-weary and long for our lives to re-inflate.  


Having found it challenging to write during the past two years, and because a number of my poet colleagues and friends have expressed similar feelings, I've decided that this may be a good time to take an extended "time out," to regroup, revamp and re-energize. I'm definitely not cancelling the blog and plan to resume posting sometime in the future. In the meantime, I wish you all the best, every success with your writing, and much good health. 


The blog will remain up! There are lots of posts, which I hope you'll visit and, hopefully, find useful. If you'd like to be in touch, I invite you to contact me via my website


God's abundant blessings to each of you!



With my sincerest and most grateful good wishes,



 To be continued!
