The Writing Duel: A Poem and Question

Which do you prefer to use when you write, the pen and paper or the keyboard? Do you mainly type out your thoughts or do you use pen and paper instead? I use both but do mainly use the computer keyboard. I find it so much faster to type than to handwrite words! Here is a poem that came from my musings:

The Writing Duel

Poor pen
Laying in the corner, hovering over
Paper and hoping for a hand to
Come its way.

Spotlight is on the keyboard,
Clicking sounds heard from the keys,
As the fingers play with letters.

Here is my interview with Christy Birmingham

Christy Birmingham:

It was wonderful to be interviewed by Fiona on her site Authors Interviews! Here is a share of the Q&A :)

A little about yourself `i.e., your education Family life etc.
I am a freelance writer who enjoys words so much! I am a mid-30s gal who likes the freedom of being self-employed. That being said, I am always looking for ways to grow and help others, with a passion in particular for helping women.

Flight Path: A Collaboration between Jolie Buchanan and Christy Birmingham

 

Collaboration of mixed media

Bring on the collaborations! Photo: ©2014 Poetic Parfait.

Bring on the latest collaboration between Jolie Buchanan and Christy Birmingham! I am so pleased with this mixed-media project as it is uplifting for both Jolie’s artwork and my poem.

We started this project a few months ago and are happy to reveal the result today. It all began with artist Jolie. She cleverly used homemade paper (made from recycled white office paper), a carved linoleum block of a stenciled bird, a hand printer press onto watercolor, Photoshop and …. Wowowowow, and she crafted the resulting image below! Obviously the process was a lot more complex than I explained here but if you’re curious about it be sure to ask Jolie. Her contact details are at the end of the post.

After I had received her image by email, I was happy to use it as inspiration for a poem.
