Greetings to all the amazing people reading this.
It’s that time of the month again! 😛
I’m talking about The Monthly Ketch-Up aka Catch-Up of my blog. This is to catch a glimpse of the previous month to see what all I did and wrote about.
Keep reading if you are interested to read some poetry, flash fiction and even some humorous posts….maybe one or two philosophical ramblings as well….
Let’s begin the show!
(PS: Color code for links: All blue and red highlights are definitely links to the mentioned posts and categories. Click away! Happy Reading. – The main purpose of this catch-up!)
The Monthly Ketch-Up : April 2015
The 4th Blogging Month. Had been quite slow. I almost disappeared after doing the last monthly Ketch-Up, which I shouldn’t have! I apologised for the same, stating reasons, with the post Uncharted Territory. Also another reason was I couldnt keep up with the Writing 101 course….well reasons, again. I hope to do it the next time… Life is so unpredictable. Whatever we think will happen, almost never does. Hmph.
So anyway, about the stats.. !5-16 posts as usual… Just today touched the 150 follower mark and total 700 likes…. 😀
Well thank you all. Each and every one of you. You rock. ❤
On that note, I would love to get to know my readers better. And like you know me through my About Page, I would like to know you or hear from you through my very New Contact Page. So if you don’t feel like sharing through comments, you can easily talk to me through there. Waiting to hear from you. 🙂
Most Popular of the Month
Seems to be a tie! Both are poems, coincidentally written for the Poetry 101 Rehab hosted by Mara Eastern. She gives such great prompts which inspire to think and write better. 😉
Find Your Flavour : Very flavour-full surprising poem for the prompt ‘Sugar’. Has all the sugar and spice you need! Do taste! 😀
No. Just No. : That’s just the title! This poem deeply reasons why the word “NO” should or shouldn’t exist in the world!
Closely following in popularity were the fiction posts:
The Follow Game : It was a flash fiction story written for the challenge ‘Monday’s Finish the Story’. The first line was provided: “They followed the buffaloes and their babies along the trail heading into the woods.” Read the story to know more!
The End…? Part 2 : Well everybody liked the first part of the story too. 😀
A to Z Acrostic Poems
1st edition: A to H
2nd edition: I to U
3rd edition: V to Z
The Show Must Go On : Even with a broken heart….
The Road Ahead : Don’t look back, good things await.
Silly Poem (Yup, poems about the elements of nature)
Part Nine: My First Haiku – Flowers
Truth Behind “Moved On”: Pretty self-explanatory. But mentions the crucial things most people tend to overlook.
So in the month of March, I took part in the 50 word story challenge, hosted by Cynthia Franks. Wrote 5 stories for it. And guess what? One of my stories got the tag of “Best story of the month”!! How cool is that! 😀 And another got 3rd place and rest got special mention too. Check out the post which mentions all this on Cynthia’s blog.:
Again, thank you Cynthia. 🙂
So the story which got ‘The best of the month’ tag “The Danger Sign”, on popular demand I decided to write the story further. Check it out:
Scene 1 (The Danger Sign)
Saved the best for last
Ice-breaker : This one’s surely gonna crack you up a bit! It was written for a daily post writing prompt: “Fearful Symmetry.”
For This Month :
Few more scenes of The Danger Sign. Following parts of The End…? series. And of course more and more poetry to watch out for. With some surprise elements as well. Keep a close eye on this blog for further amazing stuff.
Gosh, I’m tired now. Gonna get some rest and meet you guys after a break!
Until Then, Stay Tuned,
Keep Reading, Keep Exploring.
Much Love, xo
