        Yes, seems like some bug. Forums aren't letting me create hyperlinks as well. Don't know why. Thank you for sharing the link to John's work again. Much Gratitude! smile

        Blessings always!

      Misbah, thank you for sharing John's poem. If only I could purchase one of those pens on Amazon. John is so creative; I don't think he has ever been stumped, by Brenda or in his poems from the porch.

        Great talent.  Maybe he has the only magic pen.

    John
    I guess I hadn't thought about all those articles on writing.
    My thought process...
    We are writers ~ therefore we Know writing.

    Your poem  ~ Georgina's Enchanted Pen" you tells us how Georgiana begins when she's trying to satisfy that urge to write.
    She picks up her pen, hoovering over the page, waiting for the words to flow.

    When an idea surfaces, her fingers cannot stop.  Her muse is on a roll.

    She forces herself to take a break but the words creep into her dreams.

    When she awakes she uses her enchanted pen to pick up where she left off.

    She wrote until her pen ran out of ink then proofread her work seeing it wasn't bad.

    Her words soon get published & she rises to fame.

    It was though a helping hand had guided that magical pen.

    Great writing here!

    There are times we get an idea & just can't stop until we're finished.
    I know what it's like to have those words follow me in my dreams.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

      Thanks for reading and analysing  the poem, Brenda. I had no idea what I was going to write when I started, but my pen just flowed as though it was enchanted lol. Sometimes, I get an idea for something I am writing in a dream and have to jot it down straight away. Glad you enjoyed the poem, and thanks for putting the link on your word prompt article.

    Great work there John. I loved your poem. It only goes to prove passion leads to success. Georgina's story is awe inspiring. She really must have had some divine help to achieve fame and glory with her first book. Your creativity is admirable John. A very good response to this week's word prompt. thanks for sharing Misbah.

    Vidya, it is always great to receive your comments. I am glad you found Georgina’s story to be inspiring even though it may be a little
    hard to believe that she would achieve success with her first book.

    Your poem was wonderful, John. It does happen at times, that once we get an idea and we start writing, the words and the story just seem to flow. I like both the optimism and the joy you express in your poem of being in the zone of creativity. I think that often we impose our own limitations instead of just writing for the joy of it and we talk ourselves out of this creative process. Children seem to be natural storytellers but most adults have a hard time with this process. Sometimes, we become our worst critics which inhibits our flow of thoughts and our abilities. Great job with this prompt and helping us to get out of the mental blocks of our own making.
