Thank you so much for all the support and love you’ve given my poetry so far. This was a long time coming but I’m so happy it’s finally here. I’ve decided to gather up a handful of poems from what I’ve posted on this blog so far and put it in a Wattpad book for those of you who prefer that platform. I have arranged these poems into a thematic series that explores the ups and downs between losing one’s voice and the triumph of finding the creative power within.
From wingless birds to creative masters – voices can be silenced but there is nothing that can stop wild imagination when it strikes.
You’ve all been wonderful people and I don’t think I would have the guts to do this without your enthusiasm. So thank you once again and please enjoy. There will be more to come so please follow and stay tuned for more updates.
God bless and have a nice day!
Yours truly, Angel

Hi everyone, another one of my stories have been ranked on Wattpad. Claire Jones is #14 in the Krampus genre and I couldn’t have done it without you. So thank you, thank you all. 🙂
I think that Wattpad had just recently allowed ranking even in the smaller genres/categories and I’m glad that they did. Personally, I am not too hung up on ranks but I have to admit that it does make the Wattpad game more fun and possibly more encouraging for new writers.
Truth is, I haven’t updated Claire Jones in a long while and my first episode for Claire Jones involved Krampus. If you’re not familiar with Krampus, he’s this guy:
A popular half-goat, half-demon among the folks of Eastern Europe. He comes around the Christmas season to punish misbehaving children and is sometimes depicted as a companion of Saint Nicholas.
In the Claire Jones episode Christmas Troubles, he is rumoured to punish those who ended up on Santa’s Naughty List on the night of Christmas. When Claire realizes that there were no presents from Liefheid (Santa’s brother) under the tree for her, she assumes that she’s ended up on the Naughty list and has to literally face her demon.
Thank you, God. Yesterday, I had a big surprise. The Cricket’s Love Song is #10 in the Animal Kingdom genre on Wattpad . This is the first time any of my stories have been given a rank and I have all of you to thank for that. This wouldn’t be possible without your love and support and I am truly honoured.
If you haven’t checked this out yet, I hope that you do. It’s a short story about a cricket and his quest for true love. Clicking on the picture will take you to the story. Thank you all once again and God bless. 🙂
The Lord Provides and the Lord delivered. 🙂 First of all, a big THANK YOU for showing your love and support for my poem – The Lord Provides and please join me in congratulating my fellow winner – Leontine Willow. The PoetsPub has announced in their 4th Edition of the Pub Chatter that Leontine Willow‘s Starlit Echoes and my above-mentioned poem has won in the category of Prompt #1… Seven Words. For this prompt, we had to write a poem (16 lines max) with the seven words that were given: cold, silence, water, echo, moon, path, journey. I have never won any sort of writing contest before. So this is pretty awesome. 🙂
There was also another prompt with three themes in the March 2018 – Wordplay contest involving 13-word poetry. The three themes were hands, clowns and poetry. To be honest, all the 13-word entries were very unique and I had an interesting time writing them. I will post my entries up later on in this blog. In the mean time, please help me congratulate the winners for each category and please show them some love 🙂 :
