Today’s the day we launch The FunEverse! It’s a poetry blog for schools and I’m just so excited to be involved. It’s brilliant working with such talented people – and that’s just the school children. The poets, quite frankly, are all a bit bonkers but what can you do?
Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be introducing you to some of them but for now, please pop over to the FunEverse – you won’t be able to comment there but please come back here and tell me what you think.
I got an email from Maureen Lynas. Could I get to work on my author page for the brand new funEverse blog? (funEverse is a group of SCBWI children’s poets who critique each other’s work in private and are very soon about to go PUBLIC – aaaargh)
Could I? Could I ? I HAD to – clearly the world of silly poems was conspiring to get me back to work. Oh! What fun – unbridled mucking about with words. And the funny thing is, that’s what made me want to write in the first place. Mucking about with words.
I can not wait to introduce you to the happy band of lunatics that inhabit the FunEverse – watch this space next Friday!
After three years of writing a book
At another I just couldn’t look
I’d had quite enough
Of high hopes and stuff
Not one look at a book could I took.
That’s silly, it doesn’t even make any sense!
I know! Isn’t it fun 🙂 Next time you’re struggling for words, take a bite size nibble at some verse.
