Claps I loved it. A very natural flow to it, and fancy but without being too flowery. Very well done.

[Jo's Scrapbook] Do I Dare Disturb The Universe?

Good stuff Jo, it is very skillfully written. When I read your poems I naturally say them with a flow and beat. The second one was my favorite. I don't know if it was intended like that, but that's how I read it. I don't really understand what the last little one is about, it is very strange because it's vague and short. The only thing that comes to my mind is " don't forget the small things in life." or something.

I don't know what to think to be honest, because I don't read this type of stuff a lot. Regardless though I can see that you have talent Jo. I would love to see you take this writing talent exactly where you want to take it.

I remember telling you when I first joined that I wanted to they writing books and I still do, but you are out of my league! Perhaps I'll show you some rhymes I made :D

Haley, that prose was lovely. It made me think of something... Have you ever read anything by Francesca Lia Block? If so (or if not) that reminded me of her novel Echo.

If you haven't read it, you should. It's short and very beautiful. Much like that.

I HAVE A JOB

It's only two shifts a week at the moment but WHATEVER. I HAVE A JOB. After three months of cold calling, handing out resumes, answering every ad online and in the newspaper, I finally finally finally have a job!

I'll be working at the op shop at the Cat Protection Society. All the funds of the op shop, besides paying the employees, go towards maintaining the upkeep of the kitties in the shelter. And basically I get to cuddle kittens on my breaks.

FINALLY.

I've just come out of a two week flu, and now my boyfriend has it! It's the Australia Day long weekend these next few days, and with my boyfriend sick and me playing nurse, my posting capacity may be limited. If I owe you posts or threads, you may have to wait a few days. I am very sorry. I will try to keep up to date with PMs and the like, though.
