write! read! post!

We're long overdue for another Robin's Voice Thingy.  The theme:  Read what you create for the writing challenge that friend B. Nagel will post to his blog on May 12.  If you can't do that, then read whatever you want.

Post date:  Saturday, June 18.
UPDATE:  B Dot's invitation is now real.

Don't know what a voice thingy is?  Simple:  Record your voice reading your work and post it to your blog on the given date.  Then, visit the other participants, bask in their wonderfulness, and garnish generously with comments.  I will keep a list of all the participants and post links to their entries.

Are you in?  The date for posting your own thingy will be somewhere in mid June, so you've got TONS of time. The seven other times we've done this, it's been a hoot.

Please invite others!  All are welcome, especially if they bring zombie cows.  Ask questions in the comments.

Oh, one last thing, for haiku wednesday, where the words are brandish, forbid, manage:
forbid fear's cold clutch
don't let doubt manage your life
brandish your sharp tongue

That haiku is wisdom-packed from word one to last!

B. Nagel said...

Zombie cows give the best milk!

Wait, that's disgusting.
This looks really cool, Pete. Can't wait to see what all comes out of this.

My sharp tongue is currently being held hostage by a sore throat. Also, in June, I'll be away, so it looks like I'm sitting this one out.

Kim, when I tell people "I'm packin'," they don't know I mean wisdom, not heat. I'm on my way to your place in a minute.

B-dot: Zombie cows may or may not give milk, but it definitely would be a great name for a band.

Jen: Srsly? You're out? Wah.

Hedgie, I do so hope to hear your dulcet tones once more! Oo la la. :-)

Andy, thank you!

Jae, the picture on this post is not actually a reading, just a screen grab from the youtube of me reading. That particular poem, being read by me, can be found here: It is intimidating posting yourself reading aloud, but it's also liberating in a way. And (so far) everyone has been very gentle and kind with their comments...

Joining in the fun here, albeit without the Nagelisation.

Love the haiku — reminds me of the spirit of Marianne Moore's "To A Prize Bird".

I'll break out my recording gear.

I-I-I was here. I left a comment.

*sob* Oh, Blogger... You're using crack again and pawning my comments for cash, I just know it.

B. Nagel said...

Blogger brought the comments back!

Reminder to those of you thinking about doing the "waking the monster" writing prompt due June 15, or preparing to post your reading then. A thousand words or less. Deadline looming. Please play along.
