April First Again

Check out NaPoWriMo.net for poetry prompts for the next 30 days. Let the madness begin.

Hello everyone, thanks for tuning into my blog for another round of NaPoWriMo. This time last year, I was lamenting the loss of my writing nook. We had just installed a new hot water tank and added a water softener in March 2016, and the new piping for the water softener sprung a leak.

Serene writing space
unrecognizable when
water rains down wall












This year I begin a whole new adventure. I qualified to read and score standardized tests for English classes. See I can do more than just poetize with my English degree. As I was qualifying for the job, they requested documentation to show Veronica Hosking was once Veronica Heintz. I pull out my marriage license, scan it to forward to them as proof, look at it on the computer screen and see – Veronica Heintz is actually Veroinca. Over 20 years of marriage and I never caught the typo.

It wouldn’t be the first time. When I was in preschool we decorated paper plates that the teachers then sent out to make them hard plastic. I wrote my name as Roin instead of Roni. I actually think it was a subconscious mistake because a teacher wrote Veronica on the plate. I couldn’t write out Veronica yet, but always did prefer it to Roni.

I think I have improved on my writing ability and once again I have a writing nook. Though a year later someone (who will remain nameless – only man in this house), has still not repainted the replaced drywall. It’s a good thing we’re not really married. 😉
