I did not get my stories entered into the Vocal Writing Awards. Phlurking site wouldn't accept my 'Postal Code'. Thanks, HandsomeLouiiThePoet, for nominating me right from the start. I tried Lonzo, so sorry for the snafu. Thank you very much for the confidence which you placed in me. I really appreciate your kind thoughts and beautiful work on the poetry of life.
Anyway, now that the event is over, and it is time to vote amongst ourselves on the platform, I decided to have a go at reading the entries. I entered my email and started reading, didn't even choose a category, I was gonna read every single one.
Two or three stories in and my brain was already addled. I clicked off and went to distract me'self elsewhere. Maybe the stories didn't grab or interest my imagination, maybe it was my attention span of a six-year old, but I was already sated.....three stories in, and I felt like I was drowning, with no option to scroll. I am ashamed of me'self.
So this begs the question:
"HOW THE PHLURK DOES THE VOCAL STAFF DO THIS EVERY SINGLE DAY"?
Two days later....I tried again (mind you, I was thinking about tackling the task the whole time) but procrastinated a lot.
I again read three stories, and oh Jezu, the words started morphing into each other. So far only one story got my interest. I am mortified at the thought of reading more!
Ye Gads!! The Vocal Staff is phlurking AWESOME!
