Aug 25, 2010 Still lurking here - as AnnaT would say. A creature of habit I guess but I still spread my works around. Booksie doesn't seem to have improved much - I still receive alerts with nothing in the subject line!
Jun 2, 2010 I have moved to poetfreak.com a sad day for me as I truly love Booksie and it's community but I am sick and tired of having my works screwed up and mangled.
May 10, 2010 Jerry has been gracious enough to allow me to write a review on his book of collected poems and I have put this on my web site. Booksie now seems to be suffering from terminal problems, going from bad to very bad, nothing works properly anymore! I think I may be about to retire to my own website but it does seem a pity and rather snail-like.
Apr 19, 2010 I have bought and read Ricky Englands book of poetry entitled 'Paper Darts' and I recomend it to all aspiring writers. Ricky's style is lighthearted and relaxed and his work easy to digest. I bought mine from Amazon. It's also useful if you are thinking of following the same path to publication you can see first hand just what you are buying into.
Apr 7, 2010 I have found a new poetry site, new to me anyway and it seems to be free from the sluggishness that burdens Booksie, plus there are lots of lovely new voices there. Should you wish to follow the url is: www.hellopoetry.com No problems with text either, much simpler!
Mar 31, 2010 Booksie seems to get harder to work with, like a lumbering giant that needs to wake up and shed some weight! I get the odd complaint that I don't comment on every poem or story that I visit! If I can find nothing constructive to say - I keep quiet. It's not my job to tear some ones hard work to bits just because it doesn't appeal to me.I look at the comments others leave all flowery and glowing and I wonder what the hell it is that they've been reading! Certainly not the same thing I have. If the work has merit and if I have enjoyed it then I will comment - if not then I will not.
Jan 7, 2010 Just into 2010 and three deaths already! Looks like being a busy year! With a bit of luck I'll still be here at the end of it.
Nov 13, 2009 Finally got some of my work up on You Tube! Should you need to see them I'm under entertainment as davephiluk. More to come I hope.
Sep 5, 2009 Well that's summer over with - all two weeks of it in june. Fianally got one of my songs up, working on the rest - and of course the plays!
Aug 16, 2009 finding it difficult to writ something light for Anna, Terry is back, so glad, he produces a good quality of work.
Jul 24, 2009 AnnaT has asked for something with humour in it a bit lighter than the stuff I've been doing of late, so will try to comply.
Twins 9th birthday tomorrow - time flies!
Jun 10, 2009 Fixed a friends computer - one of my other 'talents' and garden now settled - still dodging writing the play out. Rain and clouds and wind - so much for summer!
Jun 3, 2009 Spent much time gardening and getting greenhouse sorted and decoratiing so play still no further on. Wish I could discover some way to make money from home - thought about teaching on line. Will see. 26 degrees last week, brown as a berry now.
May 1, 2009 May the 1st and Booksie is very quiet. Hlf way through re-writing my play ready to upload to my site.
Apr 19, 2009 Anna T put up some work! Yippee! she is still alive and kicking and what a good write! Went through it all one chapter after another. Great. Lovely sunny day today as well!
Apr 17, 2009 All my work has disappeared from my page? Most odd. Didn't think it was that bad
