It is March 1st and we finally have the first major storm here in New Hampshire since Halloween! It’s close to a foot in some areas and it’s days like this I am glad I am fortunate enough to work from home.

As I mentioned yesterday I am running a writing-type contest over on my Facebook page. Hop over and “like” the page and send in an entry, you have until Friday at 10am!

Also, as I mentioned yesterday there is a Photo-a-day challenge for March as well. I will not be participating in this one but February was a lot of fun so if you missed it why not try out the one for March? I am always looking for new “challenges” I love tight deadlines, short word counts, interesting angles. Script Frenzy is coming up again in April, anyone have any suggestion for other challenges. Leave me a comment if you know of something fun I should try!

Now, even though they aren’t from the challenge I’m going to leave you with a couple of pictures from the storm, just because!

 

 

 

 

 

The BIG picture window I look out every day into the backyard has the appearance of fringy bangs or monster fangs! What do you think?!

So it is Leap Day, which means an entire extra day to do whatever you wish. Will you do the usual or will you try to squeeze in something fun or just catch up on a project you’ve put off? How about entering a contest?! I am running a short contest in honor of Leap Day over on my Facebook page.

“Like” my page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Melissa-Rossetti-Folini-Bee-Leaf-Works/123347344351416

You must visit the page and “like” it in order to enter the contest. It’s short and fun and there will be a prize for the best entry!

Good luck!

Now for the last day of the February Photo challenge.

Day 29 subject – “something you are listening to”

Since we get an extra day today I’m going to give you an extra photo as well!

This is a new CD I got that I just love. I play it sometimes while cooking our Big Sunday Dinner and I may have “snuck” “Volare” onto my husbands new iPod when he asked me to charge it the other day! heehee Nothing like getting ready to crank out a 400lb deadlift and switching from Deep Purple to Dean Martin! Hey, it’s his fault for leaving it on shuffle!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for your bonus photo!

There is a photo-a-day challenge for MARCH! So, if you missed this one or want to try your own here is the list put out by the same person. I am undecided as to whether I’ll participate but you just never know. I do love a challenge!

Over on my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Melissa-Rossetti-Folini-Bee-Leaf-Works/123347344351416 I ran a contest during the past week. I had written a poem and decided to let my fans choose the title. The winner would be given credit for the poem here on this blog and anywhere the poem appears in print in the future. As a writer I feel that titles are the most important part of any piece of writing whether it be your Blog post, Novel, chapter headings, magazine article, or poem. Titles are also my  favorite part of writing. In some cases I come up with a title I love, then build a piece around it, this is similar to buying a pair of earrings then purchasing an outift that goes with them!

I received 15 really varied entries and the creativity of some of them was great. Some made me laugh out loud and others inspired me to want to write a poem that went with THAT title. This contest was a lot of fun and I enjoyed seeing how other people’s minds work through a creative challenge. So having said all that, the winning title and the poem that inspired it, are pasted below! Congratulations to………………….. Judi McCue!

Inklings

Robins cling to budded branches that sway in Lions’ breeze,

watching a once winter-still brook that now flows by with ease.

Squirrels search on sodden bank for treasure among the reeds

then race across a field now scattered with white carpet remnants, once green.

If I had somehow missed these signs that winter was ready to go

I would still know that spring is near for a gentle lamb

told me so.

Title by: Judi McCue

Poem by: Melissa Rossetti Folini

Now, I enjoyed all your entries so much that I actually created a poem as a gift to all of you from all of your entries! Thanks for the creative challenge!!! So Judi, Pam, Vaughn, Sharon, Heather, Mark, Mary, Lynn, Mary Beth, Suzanne, and “Cosmo” here is “your” poem! (the titles in Italicized throughout the piece.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Spring Salutations”

 I can hear the murmur of Vernal Musings on The Happening of Deliquesce.

I feel Inklings of A New Beginning upon Earth Awakening as the March in Spring Unfolds

to pull the Wool Over Winter.

Everywhere I look The Menagerie of March Madness points the way to The Promise of Spring.

I sigh in recognition of the Soothing Inception of Winter’s Final Whisper and Spring’s Gentle Roar.

The Not so Silence of the Lambs decrees spring is here once more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you all again and rest assured there will be more contests forthcoming. This was a great exercise for me and I loved having all your participation!
