    • Thanks J. I’ve been lucky to get my poems published over the years but what I like about a blog is that you can self publish as you please – and add pics or any other media you like. In the late 80s early 90s the singer of our band and I made our own poetry booklet which we intended to leave in libraries and shops. We printed out our poems on an old word processor that weighed a ton then stapled it all together, drew our own covers and used rub down lettrasets for the logo. Proper DIY and very labour intensive. Much easier these days 🙂

      • For sure, yeah – things these days are so much easier. The blog really does allow you to reach so many people pretty much instantly… you have complete freedom and there’s no pressure on when you do something… and you can change it up!

  1. Hi TVTA, wow, another string to your bow of talents! I can easily imagine a Deadly Stream, especially with the type of weather we have experienced recently.
    And regarding your publishing efforts, I remember Lettraset, there was a dealership shop around the corner from my house as a kid. I was sometimes lucky to get a cheap bargain in the shape of damaged packs of letters. Thankfully Desktop Publishing has come a long way since then. (But I do miss my Dyno vinyl label printer 😉 )

    • Thanks FT. Yes, the Dyno label printers looked good. Do you remember those little hand printers that came in thin red or blue strips? They only printed words, then you peeled the back off and stuck them onto metal filing cabinets and such. I think they had a kind of embossed look to them once printed.
