  1. Good morning Sammi, Namaste 🙂

    How are you? I trust all is well with one and all. I see you’ve been busy writing for NaNoWriMo 2017…are you on schedule? Has it been rewarding this year for you? And the novel? Fingers in all ways.

    I’m just the door so cannot stay to touch. I’ll leave my scribbled effort for the poem challenge.

    Catch up later alligator 🙂

    Namaste 🙂


    ~ Ragtag ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~

    Moonstruck nymph wrinkled me,
    Wriggled a rippling wave
    Water waif kidnapped me
    Devoured me in her cave.
    Wonder lusted breathing fasted
    Life flowed quickly away
    Incongruous congress:
    slippery wanderlust
    Waxen siren waning lifespan
    Immolation inhalation
    Love’s drowning excitation
    Passionate suffocation

    🙂 Hoping your weekend is off to a flier 🙂 Take care y’all.

    Love and Peace. Namaste 🙂

  2. I can’t believe you’re posting so much on your blog and yet still doing so well at NaNoWriMo — how do you do it?!? Great job! I feel a little bad that I’m totally blowing off my blog, but I also feel like I need to prioritize this new story if it’s ever going to get finished. And for me that means cutting back on flash challenges…
