Book Review: #NotePadPoetry by Amber Jerome-Norrgard

Each one of these poems struck a match and lit a thought in my mind. Especially the one titled ‘I wasn’t expecting’. That one spoke to me because my best friend lives a great distance away and the words that Amber Jerome-Norrgard uses sum my feelings up perfectly in just a few lines.

Book Review: Practical Life Advice: or some $#!+ like that by Amber Jerome-Norrgard

Each one of these little pieces of wisdom from Amber Jerome-Norrgard is very spot on. A few in particular struck a cord with me in a way that I wouldn’t of been able to appreciate five years ago. Some of them are obvious, and almost common sense, in a way but I for one don’t always see this in a conscious way. So to have them written in front of me makes them very bold thoughts that are currently running around my head!

A few did tickle my funny bone and a few I wish I could put on billboards on major roads!

I do seriously need these in some sort of sub-dermal electronic tattoo on the inside of my eyelids and I get a random one each time I close my eyes.

A Couple Of Shout Outs

Hey Guys and Gals, I just wanted to give a couple of by quick shout outs before I settle down and watch the end of this movie I’m watching.

The first is for The Hollywood Outsider podcast – http://www.thehollywoodoutsider.com/

This is a movie and TV podcast hosted by four guys, Aaron, Brian, Justin and Scott and each week they deliver spoiler free reviews of the current movies and TV series as well as talking about what’s in the news.
I love this one because these four blokes give honest opinions and they don’t bull sh*t the listener. It’s honest and very lighthearted.

The second is a shout out for another podcast called Tweep Nationhttp://www.newbiewriters.com/podcasts/newbiepodcast/tweep-nation-podcast/

This one is two women, Amber and Dionne talking about everything from Twitter to writing to Possums. This is an awesome show that I have absolutely fallen in love with. Amber Jerome Norrgard (http://amberjeromenorrgard.com) and Dionne Lister (http://dionnelisterwriter.wordpress.com) have so much fun on this show that I laugh out loud with them and their guests. Both are indie writers and its very inspirational listening to them I have learnt a lot about writing. I’ve gone back to the first episode and I’m enjoying and looking forward to listening to all of the episodes 🙂

Please consider checking these two great podcasts out, they are both on iTunes and are free to download and listen to. They are definitely worth checking out 🙂
