Unintentional teacher. Writer, trying to play catch-up in this overwhelming world of words!

You know that feeling, when you just want to drop everything, grab your laptop and start typing furiously away? That’s what brings me here…the joy of writing, sharing, inspiring (hopefully!) and simply getting my thoughts out there! 


My tribute to Enid Blyton for Three Line Tales: Memories are made of this

Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. – Rudyard Kipling

    Hey! This is, hopefully, the most automated comment you will ever-ever receive from me. I’ve popped over to say I finally put together the blogroll for NanoPoblano, I wanted you to check it out, and make sure that (1) your blog name is written as you want it written, and (2) I didn’t leave out super important information. Then, leave a comment introducing yourself. This is the page I’ll be directing people to through the month, so I’m hoping they’ll see your comment and be excited to go check you out. It should say something like, “Hey, Cheer Peppers– I’m So&So. I write about such&such. Come by and say hey.” I’ll be pruning comments on that page so it’s just link backs from posts, positive Pepper messages, and your intro. I’ll be sharing the page tonight, all over town, so if you can put something up before then, that’d be awesome. If not, no worries, we have a whole month to go. https://rarasaur.wordpress.com/nanopoblano-2015/

    I think every time we share our words, we inspire others – either intentionally, or otherwise. Keep inspiring! 🙂

    One does not simply “outgrow” Enid Blyton Yes! Yes! Yes! Boromir is so right. I’m almost 70 and I still read Enid Blyton. My inner child is fully intact 😀
    Thanks so much for popping by and liking “Flights of Fantasy.”

  15. M Chaillot says:

    Oooh, I LOVE the Kipling quote! And your blog is so lovely and blue–my fave color. Thanks for visiting me so I’d know to come have a look-see 🙂

    You quoted Enid Blyton! I had to double check it to ensure my eyes were playing tricks with me! So good to meet another fan! I read her through my younger years and she’s a legacy to my kids. Love your short stories and you have inspired me to try the fiction writing challenge.

    • swritings says:

      Yaay! Great to meet an Enid Blyton fan as well! Yes! I too read her books and still have my copies of The Faraway Tree, The Wishing Chair etc, which are now being read by my niece! 🙂 I’ve noticed that the illustrations in the newer versions have changed (and read an article which said that changes have been made in the newly published books as well) I prefer the illustrations of the older versions (change is hard to accept I suppose! :)) … Wow! I’m thrilled that I managed to inspire you to try out some of the fiction challenges! It’s fun taking part so do give it a shot! 🙂 Thank you so much for reading my short stories and for your wonderful comment! 🙂

      • Singledust says:

        I too still keep my old books. Yes I have seen the newer publications are realised that too. I can still picture golliwog when I close my eyes. And Mr Muddle! I really like your writing style. I am just a beginner so yes its quite exciting to write on a prompt. Thanks for the lovely encouragement!

    Hi Saima! All this time and I never visited your about page -_-. Anyway, I had no idea you published a book. Very cool!

  22. milliethom says:

    I grew up reading Enid Blyton stories, and probably read them all, many times over. The Famous Five were my favourites. I couldn’t agree more with you about writing. It’s something most of us on WP love to do. If you write books as well, the pleasure of getting each chapter finished can be quite intoxicating.
    Thank you for liking a couple of my posts. It’s much appreciated, and I’ll pop back and read more of yours as soon as I can.

    Oh dear! I’ve been captivated by your pieces and it is only now that I take a peak at your About page! 🙂 Congratulations to the book, S or shall I say Saima? 🙂 ❤

    Lots of love,

    • swritings says:

      Haha! It’s quite alright! Thanks a lot! Just a short story I wrote a while back and decided to publish, rather than have it lying around some more! Either is fine! 🙂 Thanks Rosema! ♥
