Book Spines!

I’ve always wanted to do this, and now I finally have a chance to.

As part of our new weekly feature at Writers’ Bloc (Wordsmith Wednesdays), I get to make my very own very lame book-spine poem!




Excuse the lighting (should’ve taken this in the morning, but eh)!

Twilight Robbery
The Ring of Solomon.
To Kill a Mockingbird.

Should I be apologising for inflicting this on you? Heh heh. Probably.


Writers’ Bloc – A Writers’ Support Group

Once upon a time in a land far, far away, Anne Lamott wrote a book. She called this book Bird By Bird. It was a brilliant book – witty and insightful – and it influenced a whole bunch of people. All over the world, people started writing better — or working towards writing better.

Now it just so happens that I know one of these people. After reading it, she proposed starting a Writers’ Support Group. For writers, by writers. How could I say no to that?

What we have in mind is a community of writers throwing ideas at each other, helping each other out, because – let’s face it – nothing gets those juices flowing like a good old-fashioned conversation with people who are as passionate about writing as you are.

β€œIf you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” ― Stephen King

And since you can’t have writing without reading, we also intend to double up as a book club! We’re a bloc where everybody gets a say in everything – even though we’ve started the blog, anybody who is a member can organise reading/writing challenges, work with other members to conduct activities that’ll help the entire bloc, the sky’s the limit.

We aren’t too fussy about what you write. Whether you’re working on a novel or a blog post, a play or an English assignment, as long as you love writing, we’re here for you.

Here’s the link to our official blog. We also have a Facebook page and a Goodreads group.

Maybe I’ll see you there? πŸ˜‰
