What Is This All About ?

The writers gathered here have adopted one of the 48 lions that appeared in "The Lions Of Lyon" series on the writing blog Shameless Words. By adopting a lion, the writers have become a member of this new writing circle. The lions have been posted in the sidebars of the writers' individual blogs, accompanied by a poem or piece of prose. Of course, it is hoped that the strength, luck and prestige of these mighty beasts will rub off on their owners! (Keep scrolling down to see the full listings of all members and their lions).

Lion 37 : Sarah's Writing Journal

 

Lion 37:

Alfie.

Artist behind the lion:

André Michel (Canadian sculptor).

Adoptive Writer:

Sarah at Sarah's Writing Journal.

Blog Description:

This is the website of poet, short story writer and creative writing tutor Sarah Salway. Sarah is the author of the novels Something Beginning With (ABCs of Love in the US), Tell Me Everything (both published by Bloomsbury in the UK), Messages, and a collection of short stories, Leading the Dance (both from Bluechrome). Sarah's blog is a great place to hang out, with lots of posts on the writing business and anecdotes from a writer's daily life.

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

You don’t notice my eyes at first. Not many look further than my white face mask. But when I shake out my coat, and one hundred eyes quiver on the edge, then you know nothing gets past me. When you realise I see everything, I’m ready to pounce.

Hi there,
Things looking great here. You need to send through a poem/prose piece of 48 words or under if you want to be eligible for the writing circle contest. Judging starts this Wednesday. Check out the circle site. Email me or post your piece into the comments section of your listing. :)
