The Drive To Write

I love responding to blog challenges. They challenge me, and they make me feel like eventually I will have someone respond to some of my challenges. Even better, I have had some people respond to my challenges, and it is only fair to pass on that blogger love! Like the lovely Doris in this post.

Haiku

I`d be the first to admit that I`m scared of haikus. I used to be quite proud of my ability to use the short and strict form to make something beautiful, but then I was told by my Japanese teacher that mine was the worst in the class. (She actually said a lot of nice

Caves in Normalcy

This is an oil pastel, roughly sort-of-kind-of-may-be-not-at-all in the manga style. Which, I guess it works that I didn`t achieve that really at all, because for one thing that`s not my style, and for another that would make me a follower. Not that I`m a hipster or anything, and I know that all art is

RSVP to a Party!

I know this one seems to be a little off the beaten track, but I`m just letting you guys know about the Gluten Free Twitter party on July 5th. (Yes, day after Independence Day for Americans.) I know a lot of you were already aware that I have a Twitter page. Along with me, we

How To Be A Good Diner

I was scrolling through various sites in one of the great mysteries of the world; that it, how a person can start out innocently looking at a single funny video on Youtube, and end up with bloodshot eyes 5,000 blogs, memes, and tumblrs later. Regardless, I found this blog, Break Room Stories, a sort of

Poetry Challenge Week: Day 5

Our Adventure So Far… Wow, weve reached the fifth day already! I feel like we have done so much, and come so far. Thats probably because its true, though! We really have gotten a lot done. We <a title=”Poetry Challenge Week: Day¬†1″ href=”http://thegreatzambini.com/2013/05/31/poetry-challenge-week-day-1/”>found some poems</a> that were worth reading and decided that writing poetry might

Poetry Challenge Week: Day 4

So, the story so far: Day 1 we decided that there might could possibly be some poems out there that don`t suck, and that it might be a worthy goal to make a poem of your own. Day 2 we faced our fears and wrote the first sentence in a poem. Day 3 we ignored

Poetry Challenge Week: Day 3

I know, you still aren`t sold on this whole poetry making thing. Yes, you may have found a poem you liked, you may have even bravely made a whole line, but you are not going to be able to expand that line into a whole new poem. It just isn`t going to happen. Sure, I
