Who Am I?

Me

This is me – the Clare of Clare’s Cosmos

First and foremost,
I’m a wife and a mother.
I’m a daughter, and a sister,
But I am no brother.

I think I can write,
I know I can talk,
I’m here just to see
If I can walk the walk.

Speeches, short stories,
The odd poetry.
Sometimes you may laugh,
Quite uncontrollably.

Please follow along,
It would make me so proud.
You will never be,
Just one of the crowd.


For a snippet of what’s in store
please take a moment to read
my first heart-felt short story.

Some Fine Print
Just to clarify the difference between the various types of Creative Writing I like to dabble in.
A Short Story might be based on fact, or it might be a whole load of twaddle.  The story might have a foundation in fact and be based on something that happened to me, a member of my family, or perhaps a friend, and is how I perceived what took place.  But then again, it might be pure, raw, unadulterated imagination.  I’ll leave it up to you to decipher the difference.
Poetry, I believe it speaks for itself, however, as I have recently discovered how much I love writing Haiku, even though haiku is poetry, for the purposed of managing my creative writing, I have decided to keep the two separated.
Speeches are exactly that, speeches I have written and delivered at Toastmasters.
Short ‘n Sweet is how I identify items of brevity – articles written in 25 words or less.  They may or may not be based on fact but most importantly, they are not poetry, and specifically, they are not haiku.

    1. Hi Fim,

      You did hit follow – on my trip blog Clare & Dean where I post thoughts relating to our trip around Australia

      This blog however is where I post my creative writing and allow the stars within my cosmos to shine. If you have a minute, may I suggest you read My Creative Cosmos. This was my first post and was in response to one of the Blogging 101 assignments. It was also the catalyst for me to create this blog.

      I felt my creative writing needed to shine on its own and not be hidden away and buried within my thoughts on our travels.

      I’m so glad you found your way here and you like what I’ve done with the place. 🙂

      Clare
