Welcome to the March 2010 Creative Carnival edition!
What is this? It’s a chance to compile some great articles around the blog-o-sphere showcasing all sorts of writing. If you need to know more, or would like to submit an article for the next Creative Carnival, read this.
So, without further ado, grab a cup o’ joe, kick off your shoes and sit a spell, there’s lots of interesting reading just a click away.
Robert Terrell presents galactic dreamers – haiku posted at the existential poet, saying, “The Existential Poet Blog contains my original haiku poetry. I maintain a strict form, the 5-7-5 syllable structure, which suits my poetic creativity very well. I write about all sorts of subjects, with an existential (human feelings) attitude. Many of my haiku have seasonal references, and many focus on inner states of being. And, I love moon haiku!”
Ben Klempner, MSW presents Saving Private Ryan: The Last Time I Ever Went to the Theater posted at Effective Family Communication.
Words2Words presents Fan or Fanatic? posted at Perceptions – Editorials and opinion essays on various topics., saying, “An investigation into what makes a fan different from a fanatic. Fact, fiction, and a bit of funny are all combined to create a post that pokes fun at the actions of fanatics.”
JennH presents Pure Joy posted at Mixed Metaphor.net, saying, “A fictional story based upon an actual event: The U.S. Marine Corps, confused by two Marines’ nearly identical names, notified the wrong family that their soldier had been killed in action.”

Terry Haferkamp presents His Final New Year’s Resolution posted at Shadow Dwellers, saying, “A husbands new year resolution changes his relationship with his beloved wife. She do anything to keep his resolution from happening”
Peta Jinnath Andersen presents Getting Inside the Book Review: How They Work & Why We Read Them posted at *Insert Literary Blog Name Here*, saying, “Why do we read book reviews? Why do they work? Much like a good story, reviews need a strong hook, clear voice, pacing, and balance. Longer reviews often achieve this by tying the narrative to a personal story, giving the reader something to hold onto. Although this may seem slightly narcissistic (there’s something slightly narcissistic about all writing, I suppose), it’s actually a very useful way for the reviewer to get inside the reader’s head.”
Anne Simone presents 100 Best Book Reviewers on Twitter (http:/ /www.accreditedonlinecolleges.com/blog/2010/100-best-book-reviewers-on-twitter/) posted at AccreditedOnlineColleges.org.
Sonny presents This President’s Day, Go for Gold…and Silver…and Bronze posted at Seize the Day.
