ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

#AtoZChallenge - BLOGGERS WERE CHILDREN TOO! - P is for Peter's Paris



Hello!

Regular followers and visitors to this site will know I'm using BLOGGERS WERE CHILDREN TOO! for my theme this year. I hope you're enjoying reading about bloggers, some you know and some you may not yet know, as they respond to some prompts I sent out. I've been so grateful for their responses as it helped me to get to know them better, admire their stunning cuteness as babes, and delighted me with random facts.

Thank you Adult Bloggers for your heartfelt responses. Thank you readers for visiting my posts. I hope you'll leave a comment and if you'd like to follow the link to my respondents' blogs they'd be delighted to meet you.

Rock on A- Z Challenge. (Click to read more posts...)


Yesterday was Adura Ojo.

Today is a short post, but I hope you'll treat yourself and visit Peter's blog. Awesome:


P is for Peter's Paris



I was born in Gothenburg (Göteborg), Sweden.

… and grew up at the same place.

My favorite home was – still is – in Paris.

My best childhood memory is when I, at the age of 8, during summer holidays proudly worked as lock keeper in a small canal in Sweden (while the official one took some rest).

My worst childhood memories involve some broken arms from ice hockey matches – no protection those days.


Today (since 1974) I live in Paris.

I’m still waiting for my proudest writer moment.

Retired since 2007 when I started blogging. Happy to be retired and to have so many new friends through blogging, to have the time and to be able to travel, to be baby-sitter for my grandkids… .

Denise here. I'd like to add that I'm so pleased I found Peter's Paris blog. What glorious photographs he takes on his sorties around the City of LIghts. 

Check out some of my Paris Photos here...


It was great meeting/learning about Peter wasn't it? Tomorrow drop by for Ms Queenly.


And seeing today's post was short, perhaps you'd like to pop over to RomanticFridayWriters where I've written a flash fiction entitled Paris.

  1. Isn't it marvellous how we meet friends from all over the world on the world wide web? I was born in Adelaide, Australia, travelled around the country, left Queensland for England, where I reside now.

  8. I'm going to bookmark this so I can click on the link tomorrow and meet him, and go vicariously to Paris. TODAY is not one of my best days so I'm off to bed Jen, and ME, early! It's 8:54 here. That's early for us!!

    Ann, I'm sorry to hear you didn't have the best time with Jen. Hope your sleep helps!
