Welcome back everyone to the weekly sharing linkup. Today, we are  featuring one of the poetic faces behind B-A-R. Please raise your glasses in a toast to:

Sreesha Divakaran  who blogs on poetry and short fiction

at Petrichor and Clouds 

and reviews books at Rain and a Book

Sreesha

In her own words, Sreesha has this to say:

I am/was (I recently quit my job :D) a technical writer by profession. I wrote my first poem, or silly little rhyme as I would now call it, when I was about 8. I am painfully introverted ( 😉 ), and writing was what helped me cope  with my dad’s frequent job transfers, new place, new schools and more. I started blogging in the year 2008, while in college. I blog at http://petrichorandclouds.blogspot.com/ (poems and fiction) and http://rainandabook.blogspot.com/ (book reviews). 🙂

 

Sreesha writes with a passion that I find fascinating. Whether it’s  her poetry or short stories, there’s an elusive quality of grace coupled with dark, rugged undertones of reality. If she is open and frank in her poetry, she is unabashedly honest in her book reviews. You won’t  find a review for the sake of it on her blog. Critical? Yes. Powerful? Definitely. Worth a visit? You bet! And you keep going back too.

Hop on over and say ‘Hello’ here in the comments or on her blog 🙂

    Here is her latest post , a flash fiction piece entitled:

DISTURBIA- Part 1

Welcome back everyone to the weekly sharing linkup. Today, we are  featuring one of the prolific faces behind B-A-R. Please raise your glasses in a toast to:

Debbie Doglady  who blogs at The Doglady’s Den 

Debbie D

Debbie D

In her own words, Debbie has this to say:

The “Doglady.” Canine Innkeeper in suburban Toronto, Canada. Writer/owner of THE DOGLADY’S DEN website.  Animal lover, music fanatic, inveterate traveller, history, literature and cinema buff. Eternal hippie/rockchick. Bi-national, German/Canadian. Speaks English, German, some French, a little Italian and a smattering of Spanish.

Born in Germany, to a German mother and a Canadian father of German descent.  He was an army officer who met his future wife while stationed in her homeland, after completing a tour of duty in Korea.

I started writing as a child and always dreamt of becoming a professional; even tried to make that happen for several years in the 1970s (long before the internet).  Discouraged by constant rejection, the need for a steady paycheque and the challenges of life in general, that muse was buried, deeper and deeper as time wore on and I became a corporate workaholic.  Slowly, with the help of computers and the blogging world (which she has embraced wholeheartedly), the muse has returned. Currently working on a memoir of her time at a Swiss boarding school and another of the dogs I have known during my years as a pet sitter. 

Dogs have always been part of my life; a love passed down from generation to generation. Protracted unemployment in the early 90s required some creativity.Thus, my pet care business was born.

Debbie is a great writer and puts a lot of passion into the art of blogging.Her knowledge on tech sharing is offset in equal measure by the emotional connect she brings to her posts on dogs. She does everthing with dedication and a definite rhythm, traits that are valuable in any field, not just writing. Hop on over and say ‘Hello’ here in the comments or on her blog 🙂

    Here is her latest post which is a poetic exposition on the term ‘Scream’:

Welcome back everyone to the weekly sharing linkup. Today, we are  featuring one of the most talented faces behind B-A-R. Please raise your glasses in a toast to:

Rajlakshmi Boruah  who blogs at not one or two but three blogs:

Destiny’s Child, Poetry Wagon and Twinkle Eyed Traveler

In her own words, Rajlakshmi has this to say:

I hail from Assam but have spent a major part of my life travelling and living in different parts of India. Currently live in Sydney with my husband,I work as a Java developer. I started writing 7 years ago dabbling with poetry, fiction, random musings, social issues, papercrafts and travelling. Three blogs keep the thoughts running in my mind. Trying to find humour in life 🙂

Here is her latest post which showcases one of her incredible skills: Zentangles

Floral Zentangle

Rajlakshmi is a gifted writer and poet and can make you pause and think with her words, something most of us aspire for regularly. If you did the A-Z Challenge, you would have seen her jaw-dropping theme of Yoga every day and wondered if her body was made of rubber or some other equally flexible material! Her photography skills are to die for and every snapshot can speak volumes if not an entire novel of expressions.

Welcome back everyone to the weekly sharing linkup. Today, we are  featuring one of the lovely faces behind B-A-R. Please raise your glasses in a toast to:

Shailaja V  who blogs at The Moving Quill and Diary of a Doting Mom *Also known as the GodMother. And she owns pointy boots that she does not hesitate to use on those of us that step out of line.*

IMG_20150412_121019~2

In her own words, Shailaja has this to say:

Shailaja V here: Writer, singer, parent and blogger. Not necessarily in that order. I churn out fiction and writing tips on one blog while trudging through the travails of motherhood on the other. Networking enthusiast, Grammar Geek and Eternal Learner. You’d like me if you met me 😉 Blogging began as a generic pastime back in 2007, about a year after my daughter was born. It found its footprints in a tiny space on the Blogging landscape and is now called: Diary of a Doting Mom It catalogues my experiments and experiences in parenting, some funny, some serious and most of them introspective in nature. Give it a gander if that suits you. The Moving Quill, was born in May 2014 because I believed that a writer lay trapped inside me. A fiction writer, that is. It could be due to the mistakenly heaped praise on some posts on my other blog that propelled me to start a blog devoted to writing stories. Be that as it may, it has been a very fulfilling journey, but it is far from over. With each new venture into writing, I keep learning and tweaking and grooming my technique. Hopefully, that resonates with people 🙂

Here is her latest post which celebrates her blog turning one today:

A Year old today

Shailaja is an amazing person to be around, because she is perpetually in a ‘Zen-like’ mode and after a while that can rub off on you too. She’s a talented writer, and much like a ‘witch of short-fiction’, she constantly brews amazing stories in that secret cauldron of hers and takes us on a magical journey of sorts. So, do pop over and say ‘Hi’ when you can. She would love to hear what you have to say. In the meanwhile, add your links to the blue frog below and stroll around to visit the other blogs.
