As a youth I ran free, 
Screaming bloody murder 
I’d laugh until I burst——- 
While dancing to fairy music. 

As an adult I walk rigid, 
Succumbing to society’s norms 
I don’t allow myself to dream—- 
Too busy I am for childlike things. 

Alone I’ve yearned for the past, 
Sighing for forgotten days 
When I’d make wishes—- 
Watching the dandelion seeds take flight.

  1. Hey there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the excellent work!

    • LadyRaconteur88 says:

      Thank you so much! Its gratifying to hear that someone enjoys what you do. Hopefully, my blog won’t disappointment you in the future.

    • LadyRaconteur88 says:

      Oh gosh, I’m embarrassed. This is the first time I’ve seen your comment! I hope you can forgive my lateness in replying. I just wanted to say thank you for your positive feedback. I hope my future posts will continue to please you my friend. Take care! =)

  2. I for all time emailed this website post page to
    all my contacts, because if like to read it next my contacts will too.

  3. I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for novices. May just you please extend them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

    • LadyRaconteur88 says:

      I’ll try to extend the posts relating to boosting your writing prowess, but only if I think an extension is necessary. For the most part, the articles themselves are pretty self explanatory. Any more tidbits might bog the post down in redundancy.

  4. What you posted made a ton of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you were to create a killer post title?
    I am not saying your information is not good., however suppose you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean Nostalgia | Polymnia Blues is a little vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve
    written. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little
    bit more interesting.

    • LadyRaconteur88 says:

      I choose the title that best fits the piece. I never go for what “pops” or “kills” an audience because that doesn’t concern me. I primarily write for myself, the audience comes secondary to the soul of the piece. If people like what I write then they’ll naturally be drawn to it. The last thing I want to become is a gimmick. Thank you for your input though.

  5. Superb, what a weblog it is! This webpage presents helpful information to us, keep it up.

    • LadyRaconteur88 says:

      Why thank you! I’ll definitely try to keep showcasing useful writing tips, as well as any interesting facts. Promise. =)

      * On a side note, I accidentally deleted another comment which was kind enough to compliment this blog. I apologize for this mistake. I just wanted to let this person know that your words truly made me smile. Thank you. =)

    I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or
    did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to construct my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. thanks

    • LadyRaconteur88 says:

      The blog itself is simply me sharing my writing as well as interesting facts about writing with others. As for the layout of the blog, that isn’t something I came up with. I used one of the layouts wordpress offers. I chose one then made it my own. Simple as that.
