7 Days, 7 Black and White Photos – Day 5

Even though I haven’t posted pictures on this blog very much and I don’t usually partake in “awards”, etc., this looked like something fun to do. So, I figured…why not?

I was nominated by Caribou Crossings.

The pictures are to contain no people and no explanations. Also, I’m supposed to nominate some new each day. However, I am going to leave that open for anyone that wants to take part in it.

Just wanted to share…cover release for Byron Cane’s spanking novella

Just a heads up on an upcoming novella from a fellow writer. Check it out, when it’s done, I’m sure it will be a spanking good read.

stephanieAs you know, if you’re a regular visitor to my blog, I have been a teeny weeny bit excitable (and absent) of late, due to my publishing business opening and taking off rather nicely. This is due in no small thanks to some really lovely people who have supported me, and those who have already submitted work or sent queries.

This is only a short post, but I really wanted to share with you the beautiful cover that the designer produced for Byron Cane’s erotic novella, The Spanking Misadventures of Stephanie, just because I think it’s gorgeous!

I was so happy when I received it that I could have cried. Now I just can’t wait for us to complete the edits and proofing on the book so I can make it available for e-readers, and take it to print! I wrote a bit more about the designer here

Under the Stars (A Mondo)

In the dark of night
Under a blanket of stars
What do you dream of?
© AC Elliott, 21-Aug-17

It has been a long while since I wrote one of these, and I’m trying to get back into the swing of things.  So, I thought I would try it out again. I’m curious to see any are willing to partake with a response.  For this one, I chose to use the 5-7-5 syllable pattern.

A Mondo is essentially a question/answer poetry between two people.  Typically it follows a Zen like pattern, where the “student” is taking the understanding from nature.  In this case, I strayed from the norm (somewhat).

The Mondo is:

  • written by 2 separate poets, one asking, one answering.
  • 2 stanzas of 3 lines each, 19 syllables or less, often 5-7-7, sometime 5-7- 5 is used for each stanza. The first stanza is the question, the 2nd is the response.
  • written in the spirit of Zen, responsive through meditation and observation of natural surroundings.
