And there’s more to come, friends! Here is what’s happening at the BrewNSpew Cafe!

On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. One of the highlights is I select a “word/expression of the week”. I create my composition with my interpretation.

You’re welcome to join our talented community and challenge yourselves by composing your own creation using the week by week featured word. Please and thank you for limiting your post to 300 words or fewer.

Link your blog to mine with a Pingback. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.

The prompt will close 5 days from the date of my post. I will post a week after week wrap-up of posts shared by our kindred bloggers.

How about we be creative and have fun!

      I started writing and saving my poems, not previously published, in Microsoft Word. Then I used Amazon’s Kindle Self-Publish to set up my account, etc.

      The key for me was to have everything, including images, set up in Microsoft Word. It’s a learning experience and I enjoyed it. I plan on writing another book in the future, with more of a theme to it.
