Doing Guest Posts on Words of Aqua!

Doing Guest Posts on Words of Aqua!

Hey Readers,

Finally writing about it.
The guest posts on Words of Aqua, that I have recently started doing.

You might all know that I don’t do reblogging over here on my personal blog and the other one, which is solely dedicated to poetry and prose.
So, back to what I was saying:
I don’t know why but I don’t like to reblog, at all.


Still I wanted other people’s work to get some recognition, if not a lot, so decided to have guests writers/poets/poetesses on my blog Words of Aqua.
We, me and my team @WOA, have done two posts up till now:
1. Parallel Universes (by Fiona Meyrick)
2. STRANDED (by Heidi Fraser)

Hopefully, I’ll be able to introduce more new poets/poetesses to you all.

If you want to join us as a guest writer/poet/poetess email us at:
wordsofaqua@gmail.com


You may let me know about your views, on my initiative, down below.
You’re most welcome to do that.

Thanks for all the support,
MAQ

P.S.
I have been asked to keep on writing these post scripts and so I will, but not only cause someone wants me to, as it was something I planned to do so anyway.
I’m thankful to have found myself a muse back when I did, she on the other hand 
doesn’t count herself lucky to be one though.
Also there are people who inspire me and make me write more 
and even better than before so I hope they keep on writing at their best as to keep me doing the best I can.
And may you all, writers, find people or words that inspire to do/write more as well.

That Sad, Guilty Feeling… We Writers Get!

That Sad, Guilty Feeling… We Writers Get!

Cool & Calm Readers,

I’m definitely suffering from that syndrome where writers get this guilty feeling when they haven’t pushed out some words on the paper.

Oh yeah – Writer’s Guilt!

This, indeed, is an empty, sad and a yucky-slimy-wet feeling.

As I’m writing this I feel like something is, vacating some space around my heart, which was quite claustrophobic just a few minutes ago. The easiness in breathing is also a plus point. Writing a few words, a couple of lines actually – just saved my life.

Why don’t I visit a doctor you say?

You might be right assuming that it’s not just cause I wasn’t writing. I should worry about my health, so should every writer.

(Note to self: Just gonna ruin my health anyway.)

So, I must have lost you by now, no? You still here?
Wow!

Anyways main topic: never back away from writing, no matter how harsh the environment is, it may just save your life. You may just inspire someone else who is far more in need of it. Remember, read and write; then read and write some more.

Remember Me,
MAQ

(P.S. Found out yesterday that I had encouraged another person, know her from the web, into writing her stories that she was scared of writing. Once again the reason she presented was: she didn’t know how to better describe the ideas in her mind. I told her, in a nutshell – to write first and worry about everything else later. I think of it nothing less than a miracle, the way a writer survives another day – against oneself.)

(P.S. (part two) I know one of the longest postscripts ever, right?
Apologies. Me and my thoughts.. we ramble – like lots.)

A world of simplicity explored – Haiku

A world of simplicity explored – Haiku

Dear Reader,

I have to mention that I’m not going to include a Haiku here, but it’s just that I have always heard the original Japanese versions (in Japanese language) and loved the way they make me feel.

I never thought I’ll ever write one, than to submit one for a contest. But I just did, in English just to mention the obvious.

Boku no nihongo ga totemo warui desu. (wrong way, means: My Japanese is very vicious.)
Watashi/Boku wa nihongo ga heta desu.
(Correct way, means: My Japanese is bad.)

Hope we all get to explore the unknowns of this world to us, that we push away just because we think we can’t be as good as the people who have explored it before us.

Cheers All,
MAQ
