Job Markets; And April = Right Brain Projects Galore

Some posts for today…

Retail Job Market
Retail Jobs Up and Down Across the Country

Health Care Job Market
The Present and Future of Healthcare Jobs

And a new Creative Copy Challenge (I just love this site!):
Challenge 26

By the way, April is the month of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), Script Frenzy, and Karine’s April Art Challenge, all things that I really want to take part in… Not so sure it’s doable, but I’m going to give it a try!

I’ve also been keeping up with the monthly Creative Experiments at Daisy Yellow. Her ideas are just amazing! I highly recommend taking part, even if you only do a couple of challenges, because they will make your day richer and give your brain the novelty it craves.

NaPoMo Ends

Ahh, I didn’t make the 30 poems in 30 days! But I did write 18, which isn’t bad.  I won a few more trophies, too:

Silver for “Red
Honorable Mention for “An Autumn Parting

Also wrote these new ones–all very quickly, trying to meet that deadline!

Interruption
Cramming
Summer Loving
Take a Little Piece of My Flannel Heart
Lucy
Cradling Africa

Did anyone else participate in National Poetry Month? I’d love to read what you’ve written. Feel free to share them or links to your work(s) in the comment section.

I also have a new article up at Valley Scene Magazine. Check it out!

Also, has anyone seen the film While She Was Out yet? I remember really enjoying the short story in college and am wondering if the film is any good. Might have to check it out!

Happy May!

I just love winning trophies at AllPoetry. It’s just for fun, and you enter more to be read than to win (at least I do) but winning sure makes me grin. This weekend I won:

Second Place, “fresh beginnings
Honorable Mention (pretty green trophy), “Spring Cleaning

Also wrote a new one for a contest including Harry Potter prompts:

“Tribute to Hagrid

Need to really catch up for NaPoMo; it’s almost over. Tonight I’ve got some time alloted for creative work; maybe I can play catch-up then.

One of today’s prompts from the Awe-Manac is to compose (or create) something with the title Breakheart Pass in honor of Alistair MacLean’s birthday.  Maybe that will inspire you (or me!) to create something. Badonsky says that he wrote every one of his novels in 35 days; now that is inspiring–if not a little depressing for some of us at the same time…

Happy NaPoMo

It’s National Poetry Month, and I encourage everyone to join the challenge at AllPoetry.com. If you write 30 poems before April is over, you get a free Silver Membership for a month!

I’ve contributed four so far. I will also be adding them to my Poetry page.

Another fun challenge this month is going on over at LiveJournal.  Karine’s April Drawing Challenge provides a daily drawing prompt–or you can create your own. I’ve been doing all of the prompts, but have not posted since they are in my journal. Still, great fodder for some creative thinking. Check it out!
